Melodic death metal band The Halo Effect are set to release their debut album “Days of the Lost” on August 12th via Nuclear Blast Records.
The band, made up of five former members of In Flames, recently played their first show at the Sweden Rock Festival and will embark on a long European tour with Machine Head and Amon Amarth in the autumn.
In a recent interview with Tomar Uma, Mikael Stanne says that The Halo Effect is a serious band, not just a side project.
“It is definitely a new band. It started out as a project or an idea, but because of the time we had, I think we made it into a proper band and we wanna treat it as such because we want to make sure that we do everything we possibly can to make this as good as it possibly can be. We wanna do some tours; we wanna do cool festivals. And we’re already starting to plan for more recordings and the next album and that kind of stuff. So everybody’s just excited. And because it felt good and we were on a roll… You really can’t hold Niclas and Jesper back once they get started. So they’ve already started writing new stuff. Let’s keep up. It’s gonna be a lot of work the next couple of years, that’s for sure.”
