Pain of Salvation on the road for Road Salt One

The Swedish innovative and never resting band PAIN OF SALVATION are now announcing the first tour dates of the successfully released album Road Salt One which scored overwhelming international press including cover stories like in Fuzz Mag (Sweden), Norway Rock Mag, etc.

The band comments:
"Although time hardly permits, we have decided to take Road Salt One where it truly belongs; out on the road. The first stretch of this dusty and grainy road is taking shape right now, and will mainly lead us through an October Europe. As usual, with Pain of Salvation it is all about redefining and reinventing, and our shows and tours have lived lives of their own and shapeshifted just as our albums. This tour will be no exception in that respect. So whatever you do, don’t let it be the one your friend went to see and never stops talking about."

Sweden Rocks! I also went to "Pain's" Twitter page and saw that Daniel Gildenlow was their only "friend!"
Daniel's site had some tweets that he was on the road with TransAtlantic, has his own band, and I saw him with TFK once, too, filling in on lots of instruments and singing.
Anyone know his affiliation with "Pain?" Sounds like he produced them, or is he in their band?

Pain of Salvation IS Daniel Gildenlow's band.

Okay, thanks, Bill, my bad. I might have saw "Snowfish" and thought it was his band, but that was a Swedish blog!
Sometimes I just ask you instead of doing the research myself ...
POS have a DVD of a show, maybe the "Lightbuld Sun" tour which is pretty neat: they come out as silhouettes behind this long curtain, and the music just keeps on building and building.
Since Daniel does so much with other groups, I thought he might have a band or two of his own!
