HEARSE, the Swedish "death 'n' roll" band featuring former ARCH ENEMY singer Johan Liiva and ex-FURBOWL drummer Max Thornell, will release its fifth album, "Single Ticket To Paradise", on June 15 via Vic Records. Thornell says, "it'll be, as I see it, a good value for the money release with a bonus live DVD filmed in Holland back in 2004. Am quite eager myself to see it actually! Haven't seen a second of it yet. Just remember a review from that gig saying that we sucked 'cos I wore a SPICE GIRLS t-shirt and that is unacceptable 'cos it's so not serious bla bla bla...! Quite funny, as I said before the gig that I just gotta wear it 'cos it'll always annoy someone, he he! The show was filmed by Maurice (from the great band LEGION OF THE DAMNED) and his crew, by the way."
HEARSE filmed a video for the new song "Sundown" (audio stream) on February 7 in Stockholm with Owe Lingvall and Oscar from Village Road Film. The group previously said, "[Owe and Oscar were] very nice dudes indeed and great to work with. [We] also really like the stuff they have done before (THE RASMUS, CARNAL FORGE etc.), so [we are] pretty sure we will end up with a nice HEARSE video too!"
HEARSE's fourth LP, "In These Veins", was released in North America on September 18, 2007 via Candlelight Records. The follow-up to 2005's "The Last Ordeal" was recorded and mixed by Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY, BLOODBATH).
Formed by longtime friends Thornell and Liiva, HEARSE recorded a demo before signing with Hammerheart Records. The band released a limited-edition 7-inch single, entitled "Torch", prior to issuing their debut album, "Dominion Reptillian", in 2003. A follow-up effort, "Armageddon Mon Amour", came out in 2004. The group's third CD, "The Last Ordeal", was released in August 2005 through Holland's Karmageddon Media.
