Closing 2009, Solid State Records’ Haste the Day is finishing strong on December 21st on the Napalm & Noise Tour.  After such an action-packed touring year, band is eager to announce the road plans for 2010 which include international travel once again as well as a major summer festival announced today.  Haste the Day will also begin 2010 in the studio (February) with Andreas Magnusson to record their fifth studio project.

Internationally, Haste the Day has already been confirmed to appear at “Give it a Name Festival” in Munich, Germany (http://www.fkpscorpio.com/kuenstler.asp?nummer=146710) as well as at Groezrock in Merrhout, Belgium (http://www.groezrock.be/).  In addition the band plans an UK tour in April, more information coming soon.
