    Posted: September 04 2009 at 16:02
From updates on Facebook:

"Earlier this year SPV (distributors and co-owners of InsideOut Music) declared insolvency and filed for bankruptcy, causing a lot of damage for us and other bands. As for ourselves, the planned album release and four tours were effectively postponed and/or cancelled indefinitely. Therefore we are now happy to announce that we are back on track again, with Century Media picking up InsideOut, together sorting out the sordid mess that SPV caused.

Work on the album has been resumed and we are doing our best to pick up where we left a few months back with new energy. Since you have been waiting for such a long time we will give you some first hand info on the coming album:

We are giving birth to a double album called “Road Salt” - revolving around choices, temptation, sacrifices, passion and the difficult art of giving up. A lot of the intimate issues that have become the core of Pain of Salvation in other words.

The whole album will have a very raw and dry sound, initially described by Daniel as “1976 on steroids”. The music daringly combines the lost worlds of the early Pain of Salvation while at the same time, as always, paving new roads for the band and their fans.

Hey, why not some song titles?
Linoleum, Sisters, Gone, No Way…

Road Salt will come with an extensive booklet and will also be available as a double vinyl! No release date has been confirmed yet, but we are looking at 2010 in any case.

/Pain of Salvation"




and



"So, you thought you had to wait until 2010 to get your next Pain of Salvation fix, now did you? Think again! We are just now putting the finishing touches to a new EP, scheduled to come out mid November. It will contain a few brand new tracks and an interpretation of someone else’s song, commonly referred to as a “Cover” (please picture me doing the quotation mark finger gesture right there).

NOTE: for those unfamiliar with the concept of EPs, it is not short for Extra Perrestrial, it means Extended Play as far as I know, and dates back to the era of those big black CDs called LP (Long Play) or Vinyl (that’s a full word not an abbreviation so there is no need for a parenthesis here, but I guess it’s too late now). For the sake of simplicity, let’s just say that it’s, like, half a CD. So… a C then. Or a D, depending on which half of the CD we are talking about. In our case, we are of course always talking about the BEST half of the CD. I will stop now. Sorry.

/Daniel Gildenlöw"








So then,

-New untitles EP in November, with one cover song

-New double LP in 2010, titled "Road Salt", available on 2x vinyl (Heart)

Really looking foward to this. I hope the EP isn't just songs from the new album, I hope it's full of songs unavailable anywhere else.

Shocked Woah... This might just be the best news ive heard in a long time! Very exciting! I'm one of the (apparently few) people who loved Scarsick almost as much as the rest of their discography, so this is fantastic news Big smile *goes and tries to get some sleep, knowing i might not sleep properly until mid-november-ish...*
