Swallow The Sun return to the UK for one-off London show

Swallow The Sun, the Melodic Death/Doom Maestros whose latest ‘New Moon’ album has been hailed as their most ‘progressive, sorrowful, beautiful… and evil!’, have confirmed a headline show at the Underworld in London for Sunday, December 19th.

This one-off UK date is part of a full European tour on which the Finnish sextet are being supported by both Solstafir (Spinefarm Records UK labelmates) and Mar De Grises.

Produced and mixed by Jens Borgen (Opeth, Paradise Lost, etc.) and featuring eight brand new tracks, ‘New Moon’ is the follow-up release to 2008’s ‘Plague Of Butterflies’ mini-album, and is the first to feature new drummer Kai Hahto, who replaces Pasi Pasanen.

According to STS guitarist/mainman Juha Raivio, “This time around, you can never be sure where the songs are going to take you. The depths of hell and heaven are carved deep into these songs.”
Raivio, a longstanding fan of Marillion, met up with Steve Rothery (guitarist with the longstanding UK Progsters) when STS were touring the UK as guests to Apocalyptica back in 2008 – with the result that Rothery now lends his skills to the track “Servant Of Sorrow”. This version of the song appears as a bonus cut on first single from the album, ‘New Moon’, now available as a digital release.
