The Swedish innovative and nerver resting band Pain Of Salvation are now announcing the first tour dates of the successfully released album Road Salt One which scored overwhelming international press including cover
stories like in Fuzz Mag (Sweden), Norway Rock Mag, etc.
The band comments: "Although time hardly permits, we have decided to take Road Salt One where it truly belongs; out on the road. The first stretch of this dusty and grainy road is taking shape right now, and will mainly lead us through an October Europe. As usual, with Pain of Salvation it is all about redefining and reinventing, and our shows and tours have lived lives of their own and shapeshifted just as our albums. This tour will be no exception in that respect. So whatever you do, don?t let it be the one your friend went to see and never stops talking about.?
[Funny they should say that, because I just was just thinking that I still regret having to leave early from ProgPower I way back in 2000 and missing seeing Pain of Salvation - ironically, because I was in physical pain and seeking salvation -ed.]

festival?s Prog Stage on Saturday, July 24th [They take the stage at 8pm in the UK (or 12pm Pacific/3pm Eastern... about an hour from this posting time... -ed.]
Classic Rock Prog Magazine UK states ?The angry Led Zeppy riffing of 'Linoleum' and the repetitive and rousing rabble of 'Curiosity' add a dimension that was lacking until this point (...). We can surely be satisfied with a record that simply sounds wonderfully complete and content in itself? (three page feature and highlighted box review).
