Kicking off activities in 2013, Swedish Pain of Salvation are ready to embark on more worldwide touring. The upcoming European tour in April will be exclusively acoustic based and Pain of Salvation will be joined for the 3 weeks of dates by Dutch singer/songwriter Anneke Van Giersbergen (ex The Gathering) and Árstíðir from Iceland, making this a remarkably interesting package.

I waited my whole fan-life to see you with this haircut (which's my favorite in men) and, HOLY CRAP, I'm SO in love with your hair phase. You're almost 40 and still look just.. awesome! Yeah, there's no adjective better.

    But, please, come to Brazil with the acoustic tour. We desperately need you, Daniel!

    Wet kisses from Brazil.
