Soilwork and Arch Enemy Classic Rock Supergroup

Bjorn "Speed" Strid from Soilwork and Sharlee D'Angelo from Arch Enemy have formed a new classic rock group called The Night Flight Orchestra.

The band is currently recording the album which will be released in June 2012 by Coroner Records.

The label sent over this info: "The Night Flight Orchestra" started like so many others as an innocent yet serious drunken idea when Björn Strid (Soilwork) and David Andersson (Mean Streak, Soilwork session player) were on the road together somewhere in North America in 2007.

Björn and David were bonding over what they considered "classic" or not, from rock'n'roll conspiracies to being arrested in a lobby with nothing but leather pants on.

All those scenarios, fictional or real, needed a soundtrack. They also came to think that whether you're on a metal tour or not, a lot of classic rock songs say it all and can really lend you a helping hand and make you forget about everything, especially when in motion or travelling. The classic escape. The never-ending road trip. The transatlantic night flight. It may sound simple and naive but what it all comes down to is that we all need that soundtrack to feel extra special, whether you have been arrested in a lobby or not.

It didn't take long before bass player Sharlee D'Angelo (Arch Enemy, Spiritual Beggars) joined forces as well as keyboard player Richard Larsson (Von Benzo) and drummer Jonas Källsbäck (Mean Streak).

The goal was to reclaim the 70's/early 80's sense for classic melody, the forgotten recipe to a timeless song, preferably a song mentioning a city, street name or an exhilarating alcoholic beverage. Anything that will have you spitting out the word "classic".

Further details about official release date, tracklist, artwork, etc... will be revealed soon.
