Sweden’s Pain of Salvation to release new LP in North America

Sweden’s PAIN OF SALVATION will be releasing their much anticipated new album, “Road Salt Two”, in North America via InsideOut Music on October 11th.

The band checked in with a statement about the release date as follows:
“For ‘Road Salt’ we have followed one northern star: be brave in every decision. Part two is as brave, unique and uncompromising as the first one. But don’t take it from us, we are as subjective as all reviewers out there. Let the album speak for itself – become subjective you too!”    PAIN OF SALVATION just recently appeared on the “Nyhetsmorgon” program via the national Swedish TV channel TV4 performing two brand new songs off “Road Salt Two” live.
