PAIN OF SALVATION LIVE - FB - 10-15-15Swedish progressive rock innovators have kept busy working on various new recording projects ever since their latest release, the semi- album “” from January 2015. Having just returned from some successful shows in Russia, have now also announced a next string of shows in The Netherlands and Italy.


Additionally, following up on their latest “Road Salt” releases, have now started to work on material for their next studio album effort, a concept album that goes back to the band’s harder and heavier roots of the early 2000’s. ’s Daniel Gildenlöw has checked in with a brief status report on the band’s current activities:

“We have a few gigs on the horizon, but in all honesty, our true focus is on the next studio album right now. Ragnar and I truly enjoy writing music together, and have that sort of completing-each-other’s-sentences dynamics to our writing that I have only found in very few people over the years. We have very creative writing sessions, and we can’t wait for the fans to hear the new material! You’ll see a hungry and strong Pain of Salvation, confidently returning to a harder and heavier form, musically. Still, as always, without losing the intimacy and originality that has been the trademark of the band ever since the first album. Anyone who has witnessed on stage what today’s Pain of Salvation are capable of, will understand how much I am looking forward to show them what we can do in a studio.”

At the same time as new material is being elaborated, Pain of Salvation are also wrapping up work on some special live and DVD recordings, which will see the light of day in 2016. Look forward to a busy year for Pain of Salvation and more info about the upcoming release/s will be communicated soon…
