Two Van Halen dates sold out in minutes, and a third was quickly added. First the band's Toronto show went on sale and sold out, then Van Halen sold out Philadelphia's date on October 1st just as quickly. A second show has been added at Wachovia Center on October 3rd.
Mercenary singer Mikkel Sandager issues this update on the Danish band's upcoming record: "Well, first of all, the new album is really progressing rapidly. We are in writing mode and it feels really good to be creative again. I guess I didn't realize how much I had piled up inside because I find myself writing and writing. Can't comment on any titles or songs yet but I am really exited about everything I have heard so far. It is going to be very nice to have René (Pedersen; bass/vocals) in the process as well as he is able to give us the harsh vocals that I couldn't do on The Hours That Remain. On another note, I am starting to look very much forward to playing the next show. I guess I have become quite addicted to doing shows and I feel pretty strange to not play any for two or three months. We will start recording the new album in late October and hope for a spring 2008 release but no date has been set yet."
