Swedish symphonic dark metal act ELEINE only knows one direction: towards the top! Besides releasing two strong records via Atomic Fire Records (2022's Acoustic In Hell and 2023's We Shall Remain), the band has performed shows around the globe with KAMELOT, labelmates SONATA ARCTICA, and many others, including a North American live debut alongside MOONSPELL this past Spring (which will be followed by an appearance at ProgPower USA next year).

Their next adventure commenced today with the first of thirty-four shows as part of the European leg of the I Am On Tour with PAIN, ENSIFERUM, and RYUJIN. As a result of being on the road almost nonstop, the group's lineup has also become more concrete with live guitarist Victor Jonasson joining ELEINE as a permanent member and thus completing the band as a true quintet.

Vocalist Madeleine Liljestam and guitarist/vocalist Rikard Ekberg comment, "Victor has been our live guitarist since late 2021, and we are proud to welcome him as our new permanent guitarist in the band. Victor has proven himself repeatedly with great talent and team spirit. We are happy to welcome him to the band!"

Jonasson adds, "It feels amazing being a permanent member of such a fantastic band like ELEINE. After almost two years as their live session guitarist, I can safely say there are no better people to play with than these."

Additionally, the Swedes have released a brand new digital two-track single titled Blood In Their Eyes. Its title may sound familiar since it belongs to a track that can also be found on ELEINE's latest studio offering, We Shall Remain. As a bonus, the band has added a previously unreleased instrumental version of the song.

Watch ELEINE's "Blood In Their Eyes" visualizer BELOW.

We Shall Remain was written and produced by guitar player/vocalist Rikard Ekberg and lead vocalist Madeleine Liljestam while Thomas "Plec" Johansson took care of co-recording, mixing, and mastering at The Panic Room Studio in Skovde, Sweden. Its fiery artwork was designed by Nestor Avalos (nestoravalosofficial.com) and Madeleine Liljestam.
