Tristana: Announce new project with singer Mats Leven.

Swedish singer Mats Levén (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, CANDLEMASS, TREAT, THERION, KRUX) is collaborating with the Slovakian alternative metal band TRISTANA. The new project, calling itself TRISTANA FEAT. MATS LEVÉN, will make festival appearances this summer.

Said TRISTANA vocalist Peter Wilsen: "Mats is a great singer. I saw him first time on Malmsteen's live DVD 'Double Live!' from 1998. I was a teenager and I started to sing in the first band. I cant believed how powerful he sang high tones and how easy managed it. His voice is very characteristic and this is very important for good singers."

TRISTANA FEAT. MATS LEVÉN will play songs from "Virtual Crime". Mats will take over clean singing parts and Peter Wilsen will do the growls.

Later this year, TRISTANA will record a new song and music video with Mats.
