SCHEITAN returns with "Songs for the Gothic People" and a concert in Athens, Greece!

"Songs for the Gothic People" is the new album from the Swedish gothic/rock/metal band SCHEITAN.

The album marks the return of the band, who has been silent since their 2000 performance at the classic Wave Gotik Treffen festival in Leipzig, Germany. The new album is released on both CD and vinyl (LP) by the Greek label The Circle Music. Coinciding with the album release is the release of the video for "The Last Time", the opening track of the album.

Scheitan's new album is a haunting romantic collection of songs that melds dark, atmospheric melodies with moments that weaves a tapestry of melancholy. After 24 years Pierre Törnkvist reincarnates Scheitan and redefines their sound keeping the best elements from their past and adding more darkness, melody, lyricism and expanding their music palette. 

Guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist Pierre Törnkvist comments on the new release: "After releasing 'Nemesis' on Century Media in 1999 and then playing WGT in 2000, we wrote new music for Scheitan but felt it was going in the wrong direction, thus Helltrain was formed instead, and Scheitan went into a long period of hiatus.
Scheitan in 2024 is, of course, not the same as Scheitan in 1999, but these new songs I wrote felt like they sounded like a perfect continuation of the project, so the more I thought about it, the more natural it felt to bring it back to life instead of doing something completely new. Musically it’s close to where we left off, and the vocals are now the way I would have wanted them to be already on 'Nemesis.'

We are now back for real. We already have shows booked in Athens and in our hometown Luleå, and we will look for some more opportunities to play live. I will also start writing the next album as soon as possible; there is no stopping me now. So hopefully, we can have another album out in the spring of 2025 and play live even more during that year.

"We did yet another video for the opening track 'The Last Time,' nothing fancy, just some black-and-white footage together with me doing the vocals. I think it turned out decent. We are still very much a DIY band, working closely together with The Circle Music, where both parts take responsibility in pushing things forward. So it's not a million-dollar budget production, but I love underground stuff, and so does our label.""

SCHEITAN will perform on Temple Athens's stage in Saturday, June 15th. 

The concert will open the greek gothic metallers Opened Paradise, who are currently in the process of promoting their latest album "Eclipse" (2022), as well as the goth rock / post punk / darkwave outfit Reflection Black, one of the best greek acts for 2023.

-Tickets cost €10 (presale) and €15 (box office).
-The pre-sale takes place through ComeTogether.live
