After being on hold for over a year, Swedish metalcore band Safemode returns with a new EP, entitled “Gold Digger”. Single track ‘Another Day Will Haunt You’ from the EP, is already being played on American radio, and this summer the new songs have been heard at Scandinavian festivals.
“Gold Digger” will be released on October 1st. The EP, recorded at Radionika Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, was once again produced and mixed by Dino Medanhodzic.
First single ‘Another Day Will Haunt You’ was released earlier in September, and the song quickly reached first place on American radio-station Effect Radio’s Top #30-chart.
In addition to the EP-announcement, Safemode have also confirmed that the video for the title track ‘Gold Digger: Sam’ will debut on their YouTube-channel in November.
Lead singer, Tjet Gustafsson, about the EP: “It is always a challenge to write new, and better music than previous releases. Especially when the debut album became some kind of breakthrough for a band like us. We wanted this EP to be a sequel to “For a Better Tomorrow”, but still be something new and modern, and I think we made it!”
Johannes Karlsson adds, “I think this EP is ‘much more’ in every direction: The heavy parts are heavier, and the melodic parts are more melodic than before. Even the lyrics are deeper. I can’t wait for all of our fans to hear it.”
“Gold Digger” will be available in both hard copy and digital versions from October 1:st 2013.
