Mikael Stanne of Dark Tranquillity discussed Atoma, touring and beer.



Dark Tranquillity just finished a North American tour supporting their new album Atoma, which was released at the beginning of November. Last Saturday they stopped by Mesa, AZ and played an intense show at Club Red.

The package for this tour was a diverse and heavy loaded bill as Dark Tranquillity shared the journey with Swallow The Sun, Enforcer, and Starkill. For Dark Tranquillity this was their first show in two years as the last time they came about the time they were closing the cycle for Construct, so obviously for this show, we got some new songs as Atoma was just released at the beginning of the month.

Dark Tranquillity‘s new songs are incredible life, I think Neutrality, Forward Momentum are my favorite songs from the record, and the live versions of them are more explosive. Atoma and The Pitiless are two of those songs that I didn’t picture quite well in the live setting but both were enjoyable and an excellent addition to the set.

The Age of Metal had the pleasure to speak once more with Mikael Stanne vocalist of Dark Tranquillity about Atoma, the North American tour and his passion for beer.
