Digital Tour Bus, which gives fans “an all-access pass” to the tour buses that their favorite bands travel in, has posted its latest “Bus Invaders” episode, focusing on Swedish melodic death metallers DARK TRANQUILLITY. The four-minute clip, which was filmed February 12 in Joliet, Ilinois, can be seen below.

On its North American tour, DARK TRANQUILLITY sold a seven-inch EP entitled “A Memory Construct”, which will also be released digitally in the beginning of March. Recorded during the “Construct” sessions, the single contains the two songs, is limited to 500 copies worldwide and is available on a transparent red wax. Featured tracks are the previously unreleased “A Memory Construct” and “Sorrows Architect”, previously only available as a limited flexi seven-inch released with issue #106 of Decibel magazine.

DARK TRANQUILLITY‘s tenth studio album, “Construct”, was released on May 27, 2013 via Century Media Records. The CD was mixed by Jens Bogren (PARADISE LOST, OPETH, KATATONIA) at his Fascination Street studios in Örebro, Sweden.

DARK TRANQUILLITY filmed a music video for the song “Uniformity” on April 13, 2013 with Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company, who has previously worked with DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL, IN FLAMES, SONIC SYNDICATE and KAMELOT, among others.

Stone Sour: And the award for best metal moustache goes to…

Stone Sour release new album House Of Gold & Bones Part 2 on April 8 via Roadrunner, with the album serving as the second part of a two-disc concept opus, the first of which was released last year.

Frontman and generally lovely chap Corey Taylor has offered his own track-by-track breakdown of the album, which you can see in a new series of videos below:

House Of Gold & Bones Part 2 Tracklist

Red City
Black John
Sadist
Peckinpah
Stalemate
Gravesend
‘82
The Uncanny Valley
Blue Smoke
Do Me A Favor
The Conflagration
The House Of Gold & Bones

House Of Gold & Bones Part 2 will follow in the footsteps of its predecessor…Part 1, which dropped last year, also via Roadrunner, and will be preceded by new Stone Sour single Do Me A Favor on February 12.

“Part 2 is much darker [than the first part], if I’m honest,” Corey told ThisIsNotAScene. “Aside from it being a completely different album, it feels more like a soundtrack to a movie in a lot of ways, man. It’s really thematic. There are themes from part 1 that reveal themselves and that come again, musically. There’s actually stuff from part 2 that you’ll hear that’s on part 1 and you’ll be like, ‘Fucking hell!’”

He continued: “We essentially recorded these, and this is where technology is now, so you could have these in a playlist on your iTunes and play them top to fucking bottom and really get that experience while you read both parts. So it’s some of our darkest music, our most intricate and complex music, some of the best fucking lyrics I’ve ever written, to be honest. Even writing from a narrative like that, it was so challenging. Plus, it’s got some of our best songs on it.

Stone Sour play Download in June.

Stone Sour have been smashing their way through Australia on this year’s Soundwave festival, and Corey Taylor has clocked in to talk about the festival, seeing Alice In Chains back in the day and, somewhat topically given that Nine Inch Nails are officially back, how awesome Trent Reznor is.
