Much have happened since we last spoke! I’ve for example been crippled, by a gymnastic endeavor on the last gig, which “conveniently” dislodged my right kneecap. Lucky me it was the last gig of the tour! Rehab is going slow but forward. There’s been an election fiasco in Sweden, which is worrying. 4 years to ransack your life and do a better choice next time… There’s obviously grand plans for The Unguided in 2015, new album and everything. We are figuring out the details in this moment. There’s a couple of secrets up our sleeves as well, which I almost can’t bite my tongue about… BUT I MUST BE STRONG! This blog will remain in 2014 however and give you a picture update on what our summer festivals was like!

Before that however; I just want to mention the ongoing auction of the 18 “Nightmareland” shirts. There’s 10 left from LARGE to XXL and the current one and more information you’ll find under this link or at our Facebook. Check it out!
Takashi won one auction!
Filip as well!
Getaway Rock Festival was the second festival for us this summer. We had an early but great show! Saw a lot of wicked bands and met lovely fans. One of the best (if not THE best,) festival in Sweden for sure!

The week after Getaway Rock, we ventured down to Germany to do a show at Summer Breeze. This could easily been the best show we’ve done up to date! We had such an amazing time and I don’t know how many times I’ve said this but Germany does feel like a second home for us. Thank you Summer Breeze and all fans for that immortal day! Hopefully see you in 2016 hehe.

Just one of the best live bands there is!
Children of Bodom. This was one nice nostalgic trip!
On our way back to Sweden we hit Metal Frenzy with our friends in Caliban. Which was also a nice experience.
Cute dawg at the hotel!

Rehearsal before show
The final show of Tour de Immortalité was scheduled at the funfair Gröna Lund, in my hometown; Stockholm. I blatantly decided to give my all at that show… and fucked up my knee. Hope you appreciated the effort! It was both fun & fair(?) I had a couple of weeks at the sick-list and worked from home two weeks, before I could burn the crouches and get up on my feet properly again. I’ve lost 5kg, which I guess is mostly muscles… and the doctor does claim I can skip leg day with good conscious for a while. Regarding the incident and the continuation of the show, I owe that strength to the fans; your spirit certainly carried me through those last 3 songs. Even if I have to admit I was in agonizing pain haha. Thanks for that, and thanks for the great gig. I SHALL WALK AGAIN!

My parents-in-law was to have their first The Unguided show
...only to see their daughter's boyfriend wreck his knee on stage
Kent made me do it!
Got this thing from the doctor
Something good came out of me being grounded at home however and that is that I’ve found some time to edit a couple of episodes of The Unguided TV. All of which you can view here:
There’s been extra much love from the fans recently with a lot of people tattooing the unguided crest! We are so blessed with your support.

Ella’s Icelandic horse interest have been taking an unexpected turn. From going to a couple of competitions in Sweden. We now own, not one but TWO; Icelandic horse foals and have 5 acres fenced and ready to receive them in January next year. Now that was a fast development! But I’m all good with it and she’s super happy of course. We’ve been visiting them both already. One in Motala and the other one south of Kristianstad in Skåne.
