    Announcing European acoustic tour, next release and Russian shows!

    Kicking off activities in 2013, Swedish Pain of Salvation are ready to embark on more worldwide touring. The upcoming European tour in April will be exclusively acoustic based and Pain of Salvation will be joined for the 3 weeks of dates by Dutch singer/songwriter Anneke Van Giersbergen (ex The Gathering) and Árstíðir from Iceland, making this a remarkably interesting package.

    The tour is to coincide with Pain of Salvation’s upcoming album release via InsideOutMusic, featuring newly recorded acoustic versions of hand picked Pain of Salvation songs. More details about this special album project will be made public soon.

    These are all the dates of the European tour:

    Pfft.

    [Rant]
    Let me preface this by saying that I am a huge fanboy (I mean, look at my user name), but I really was hoping for a studio album first. While the clips I have seen from the live acoustic shows they have done recently have been breathtaking, they need to move on from Road Salt. I know I am probably on a sparsely populated island here when I say that I liked RS1 and really liked RS2. It was not near their previous stuff IMO, but still a cool experiment. The problem is that they have been stuck in that sound since 2009. The great thing about the band previously was, if you did not like their current experimentation, just wait until the next album and you will get something different. They have been in this raw 70's retro sound for one Ep and two LPS.

    I know some of this was out of their hands (they kinda rushed because they thought they were going on the Prog Nation Tour and the label wanted two albums) but it should have been a double album. I think it would be a wiser move to do another studio album first
    [/rant]

    Having said that, if they play a southern California date I will be there for sure.

    I would love to see them come here. But I think I will bring Daniel a wig. What a waste of hair. ;)

    And note that the US/Canada tour will *NOT* be the acoustic one ;)

    So it's a safe bet that the west coast will get the shaft then with there being only 10 dates? :lol:

    10 nights? Well I'm definitely getting no joy out here in the metal wasteland. So much sadface.

    EDIT: lol, Jem and I are depressed at the same time for the same reason.

    Once I saw the Riverside dates I lost all hope of this coming over here. The goal now is to find a date that's close enough to a Riverside show.

    I wonder if part of it is all the lineup turnover they had the past couple of years. Kinda hard to do a new album when you don't have a stable lineup.

    I'm looking forward to seeing them at RoSFest. It has been way too long.

    Actively planning a NYC trip now. :D Although I sure wish I could afford a flight to Amsterdam to hit up De Boerderij.

    I hope this tour gets announced soon because I'm getting confused with contradictory "hints" concerning west coast shows in other threads, haha.
