A message from Rickard Thelin, singer and composer in Summoned Tide

Hey everybody. I thought that I’d give you a heads up and let you all know that yes, we are still alive and that we are working on the new album called Dystopia, that we plan to release next year. So far, I’m really pleased with the new theme, and I think that you’ll enjoy it too. We have a few interesting things on the next album and I can hardly wait to get it done so that I can share my excitement about the new songs. Thank you for your continued support, it warms my soul. //Rickard Thelin

News from Summoned Tide

Hello! The last month has been one long journey and the journey that we don't want to have to be done. We have been playing on one of our top ten festivals we for many years ago had number one of the festivals that we wanted to play on in the future – Wacken Open Air. Now we have done that and a milestone is passed in our journey into the future. It's been a few weeks since we were down in Wacken and played at Wacken Open Air. We note that the Wacken is a fantastic festival that draws much of its image in clay mud and clay. During the five days that we were there so it rained in three of them. But we managed to establish some interesting contacts and hope that it will be able to take us out on the roads in Europe. It was a learning journey that we don't want to have to be done. To stand there on WET-stage and gaze out over the 5,000 people who were in the tent was a magical experience. We've played for as many earlier but Wacken is Wacken. It is, after all, the Festival of festivals and the biggest for hard rock and metal.Two weeks ago we played at Sabaton Open air in Falun Sweden before 1500 in the audience. It was a perfect performance in the full light of day with the Sun as it dominated the stage light. We are very pleased with the gig and we tied there a some new contacts for future cooperation. Now we have entered a new phase and that is to prepare us for the studio. If there is a full length album or another format is not yet clear. But we expect to be able to release new material in early 2016. At the same time so working our manager to get gigs nationally in Sweden and a European tour during the next six months. But we want more and we need help from you. We want to create an army of Summoned Tide fans to help us evolve as a band and also spread the word about us to your friends, acquaintances, concert organisers, Festivals, etc. We need contacts with bookers, festivals, organizers and media worldwide. Because we want to be able to play live at a place near you instead of online. We apologize if there are grammatical errors in the text

Home from Wacken

Hi there! we have just come back from our gig at WackeOpen Airn. It was an absolutely incredible powerful experience to play in Bullhead tent on the world's biggest metal festival. We've got a lot of interesting contacts for our further development and future capital. For those of you who were there and supported us, thank you for your support. Another thing that was really impressive was that many of our favorite bands played there this year. So we had the opportunity to see real live, we also met some of them on and around the Festival's VIP area. We have had many new friends, fans and followers after Wacken. We will do everything for you to be able to see us on a stage near you in the not-too-distant future The brunt of the past week was the journey there and back home that took about 20 hours in minibus. The distance between Umeå and Wacken is about 1800 km Now we load face Sabaton Open Air on August 14

On the road to Wacken Open Air and Sabaton Open Air

We spent this past Easter weekend, the 4th of April in Gävle, and played in the national final of the Wacken Metal Battle Sweden. We went down the day before to rest up and prepare in peace. Unfortunately, Jennifer couldn’t make the trip this time and was replaced by Alexander Hermansson, an amazing bass player from Strange Brew. He did really well and was almost like our mascot on this journey. The resistance of the evening came from HOG based out of Stockholm, Ground Zero from Borlänge and Circle of Conspiracy from Västra Götaland, an incredibly strong lineup where anyone could’ve won. The gig went well for all the bands. After we played there was only the nervous wait until the jury had agreed upon the winner and came up on stage to announce it in front of everyone. The jury's motivation was that "this year's winner of the Wacken Metal Battle Sweden has shown great musicianship and stage presence from all members. This close-knit band delivers emotion, message, good tunes and the gig was a real experience. The jury is united and we believe that you will go all the way at Wacken Open Air. The winner of the Wacken Metal Battle Sweden in 2015 is Summoned Tide! " Anna Rolander, jury Chairman and manager at 666Songs Our next adventures will take us on the road again to Wacken Open Air and Sabaton Open Air – Rock City Falun later on this Summer thanks to the victory in Gävle.

Wacken Metal Battle

We have taken part in Wacken Metal Battle Sweden. Among 163 bands that applied we was chosen as one of 16 who competed last night. Four bands in four venues spread out geographically in Sweden. We competed in the most northern venue of them all, more or less on the arctic circle. The competition last night was a success for Summoned Tide. We will take part in the national final of Wacken Metal Battle Sweden the 4th of April where the winner will represent Sweden in Wacken Open Air s world final for unsigned bands. MIKK manager

New Year & New Possibilities

New Year & New Possibilities New Year & New Possibilities Will 2014 be that year? Today we don´t know how it will be but our focus are that this our 10th year as a band will be the breakthrough year on a wider field than so far. It sounds strange concerning that we have already been on Sweden Rock Festival and also played in some other important Swedish festivals. But we want more. We want to go Europe and actually go global. But to make this true we need backups like a band booking management or be signed to a record company. But first of all will we compete about a slot at Wacken festival. We are one of 16 bands in Sweden that compete in the competition Wacken Metal Battle Sweden. We will play our semifinal in Östersund the 8th February and if we win there we will go to the national final in Falun the 15th march. The price for that winner will be to play at Wacken in their Wacken World Final among 30 bands from 30 countries, get a slot at Sabaton Open Air in Falun, record deal with Nuclear Blast and supported with equipment by Marshall . But it is a long road to go… We will also take part in a big local event in April. Our musicschool celebrate their 55th anniversary. We are one of the bands, constellations that will perform that night. Other music celebrities from our municipality, like Frida Hyvönen, Josefine Forsman from Sahara Hotnights for example, will also support that event. We are very proud to been asked to play at that event. It is a big opportunity to spread our music to new groups in our hometown.

CHRISTMAS WISHES and some reflections

OUR WISHES FOR 2014: Have a lot more gigs than this year. This year was a broken year because that Nicklas, our ex drummer, left us in February just after we decided on both doing a video and a US east coast tour

Do some recordings f.e. an EP. We need new material and think that you out there want it to

Record a video early next year. Now will we arrange so we will have a winter theme video produced

Play on 3 bigger festivals, it could be in or outside Sweden

Make a longer tour, we haven´t decided where yet. It is a matter of money of course and if we can find a support

Find a serious management that can see our potential and wants to work with us. This could be great because they have door openers to our wishes above.

CAN YOU BE HELPFUL? Do some of You have the contacts that we need to fulfill our wishes and hopefully yours for the next year?

SOME FUCKING DAYS! During the last weeks we have been fucked up by an unserious booker. They wanted to book us on Christmas day to a gig on south on the Swedish east coast. They even offered us a small nightrider with driver and even more. We see a lot of potential in their offers, but when we start talking specific topics and wanted to get in phone contact with them there was always a lot of problems. So we decided last Friday to stop discuss with this fuckers and realized that there was some kind of scam or fraud. On the positive side we all can stay with our families and near ones to celebrate Christmas

Nu spänner vi bågen

Vad händer för oss just nu? Just nu har vi klarat av 3 fantastiska festivalspelningar i Juli o Augusti. Först ut var att få spela som sista band på Stadsfesten i Skellefteå. Vi spelade förvisso inte på den stora scenen där Magnus Uggla och Petter var huvudakter utan på scenen bredvid. Direkt Petter spelat klart så avslutade vi kvällen med ett entimmes gig. Det vra en helt otroligt bra respons från alla som var där. Vi hade för dagen trummisen Simon bakom skinn o pukor. Nästa var att stänga ner premiärkvällen på Trästocksfestivalen efter Johnossi. Rickard gick ut hårt och sedan ökade vi under de 60 minuter som spelningen varade. Vi fick en hel del nya fans denna kväll där den som rest längst var från Mexico City. Dagen till ära så hade vi den helt otrolige trummisen Ryan O´Shea bakom skinnen. Det han inte fixar det finns nog inte Sist men inte minst – Hardnone Metal fest i Haddingen. Vi gick med på att spela tidigt trots att mindre etablerade band fick spela efter oss. För oss var det guld eftersom då fick vi till en bra bandfest trots att MIKK, vår manager var frånvarande. Detta var den festivalen under sommaren som vi kommer minnas längst. Speciellt med tanke på alla lovord som vi fått och alla nya fans som vi fick efter detta. Någon hörde av sig att detta var det bästa han hört under samtliga Hadnone som han varit på och det var visst alla festivalerna. Skinnbehandlandet sköttes denna kväll av Henrik Roslund, som bl.a. har ett förflutit som trummis i bandet som an bildade med Tommy ReinExeed

Men nu spänner vi bågen och väntar på att bokningarna ska trilla in. Det är tomt i dagsläget men vi skulle vilja ha ett 20-30tal spelningar innan årsskiftet
