THE HALO EFFECT is planning to enter the studio before the end of the year to record a new EP
THE HALO EFFECT is the new group which is made up of former members of the band IN FLAMES. Those members are Jesper Strömblad (guitar), Daniel Svensson (drums), Peter Iwers (bass), Niclas Engelin (guitar) and Mikael Stanne (vocals).
The forthcoming EP will act as the follow-up to THE HALO EFFECT‘s debut album, “Days Of The Lost“, which recently entered the official chart in Sweden at position No. 1, marking the first time a debut LP from a metal act has ever topped the chart in Sweden in its first week of release.
Speaking to Overdrive.ie ‘s Oran O’Beirne after THE HALO EFFECT‘s September 13 performance in Dublin as the support act for AMON AMARTH and MACHINE HEAD, Peter said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “We’re gonna try and go back into the studio and finish up the next record. Maybe not a full-length, but like an EP or something ” Mikael added: “I’m gonna be on tour [this] winter with DARK TRANQUILLITY. But then at the end of the year, we’re gonna record some new stuff and hopefully have something ready before next summer so that we can play longer sets, basically… Because it’s been weird playing the entire album at some of the festival shows we’ve done. Also, we did it before the album came out, which nobody does. So, yeah, that was kind of strange.”
“Days Of The Lost” arrived on August 12 via Nuclear Blast.
