SWALLOW THE SUN drummer Pasi Pasanen is forced to miss the Finnish band's North American tour with INSOMNIUM, KATATONIA and SCAR SYMMETRY due to "work-related issues." He will be temporarily replaced by Kai Hahto (WINTERSUN, ex-ROTTEN SOUND). The trek is scheduled to kick off September 4 in West Springfield, Virginia and run through September 26 in Houston.

SWALLOW THE SUN's third album, "Hope" entered the Finnish national chart at position No. 3 back in February. The follow-up to 2005's "Ghosts of Loss" was recorded at Seawolf Studios in Helsinki and was mastered at Finnvox studios with Minerva Pappi. The LP features a vocal appearance by Jonas Renkse of KATATONIA on the song "The Justice of Suffering".

SWALLOW THE SUN's video for the song "Don't Fall Asleep (Horror Pt. 2)" can be view below. Produced by Medialouhos and directed by Antti Hyyrynen, the clip was shot in November 2006.
