    Dark Tranquillity Announce New Album and 2021 Tour Dates


    Melodic death metal pioneers Dark Tranquillity are returning with their first new album in four years, Moment, on November 20th. In anticipation, the Swedish band has shared the lead single, “Phantom Days”, and also announced a North American fall 2021 headlining tour with support from the decidedly obscure pairing of Obscura and Nailed to Obscurity.

    Dark Tranquillity have been proliferating melodic death metal since 1991 and are masters of the style at this point. “Phantom Days” continues the momentum gathered with 2016’s Atoma, which was heralded as a return to form for the band. Fans of melo-death will soak this one up.

    New guitarists Christopher Amott (ex-Arch Enemy) and Johan Reinholdz (Nonexist) join the fold, and their contributions are immediately evident, with a strong solo anchoring the new song. Moment was recorded at Nacksving Studios and Rogue Music by Martin Brändström and mixed/mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios.

    Dark Tranquillity will support the new album with a 46-date tour of the US and Canada, set for to kick off in September 2021. It’s one of the first major metal tours to be booked with such advance notice. Even the band itself is cautiously optimistic that live music will be safe enough by then.

    “It’s hard to even imagine this happening, given the global pause on touring due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Dark Tranquillity remarked in a press release. “But [we] really hope so and it’s going to be very, very awesome. It’s been a while and it will be a while still, but we’re coming back to America. Obscura and Nailed to Obscurity will be with us and we cannot wait to hit the stages with these awesome bands and see you all again. Let’s make sure things get back to normal and that this can happen. We miss you and cannot wait to get to share our music with you again.”
