Sweden’s THE HAUNTED continues to promote their newest album release Unseen , which hit the charts at #5 in Sweden as well as #26 in Finland upon release. After an Australian tour and a busy Summer schedule which saw the band appear at major European open air festival events like Sweden Rock (Sweden), Hellfest (France), Wacken (Germany) and Summer Breeze (Germany), THE HAUNTED has most recently announced a run of dates in Sweden with ENTOMBED as part of the 2011 edition of the “Close-Up Made Us Do It” tour, a couple of headlining shows in Greece, as well as a (re-scheduled) tour of Japan together with Norwegian acts IHSAHN and LEPROUS.
Now, THE HAUNTED is happy to launch the first promotional video clip for the Unseen album. The song “No Ghost” (in a special live rendition from Wacken Open Air festival 2011) can be viewed online here:
This intense live version of “No Ghost” was filmed at Germany’s famous Wacken Open Air Festival 2011 by Marcel Schleiff / Record Film and edited by Anders Björler / At The Gates Production. The live sound recording was engineered by Jacky Lehmann / Audiosound Lehmann and then mixed by the band’s longterm producer Tue Madsen at Antfarm Studio in Denmark.
For gamers, the song “No Ghost” had already been made available earlier this year on the RockBand network. Check out more here.
THE HAUNTED has also just confirmed three shows in China (in collaboration with XOUNDFORCE) as part of their upcoming Asian tour in December. The band has checked in with a message about these shows and the video clip’s debut:
“A little update from THE HAUNTED camp: We are proud to share the following live video for ‘No Ghost’ which was filmed this summer at Wacken Open Air. The Wacken crew did a great job filming and Tue Madsen did exceptional work mixing this time around.
We are currently preparing for some club shows in Greece, in Sweden with ENTOMBED, as well as a tour of Japan & China. China will be a first for us and we are very excited about this. We are also looking at some more touring next year, but more info about that soon. ‘Til then, keep checking our website & facebook for updates and news.”
