SONATA ARCTICA - working on new album! - 2016-02-12

2016-02-12 - Finnish melodic metal quintet SONATA ARCTICA has started to work on the follow-up album to the successful »Pariah's Child« record. Beyond that, the band are also happy to announce the first part of their European Tour for 2016.

"At the moment we're taking a break from the recording of our 9th studio album and heading out with NIGHTWISH for a couple of months in North-America. When we get back we're more or less going straight into the studio to continue working on the album", comments keyboard player Henrik „Henkka“ Klingenberg. The US tour will kick off on February 19th in Sayreville, New Jersey - ending up in New York City on April 3rd.

As with »Pariah's Child«, the as yet untitled upcoming ninth studio album will be recorded at "Studio 57". "As far as the musical direction of the album, it's really too early to say how it will turn out. Having said that, I expect the usual SONATA ARCTICA trademarks to be found on it. We will however get this album done in time for a fall release and we'll tell you all more as things progress..."

Directly alongside the release of the new album, SONATA ARCTICA will hit the road again, supported by their Swedish fellows TWILIGHT FORCE. "We're all really looking forward to finishing our new studio album and taking the songs on the road. This time we'll start in Europe before heading on to the rest of the world. As always, you can expect a energetic show with new stuff as well as some old favourites", states the band.

And here are the dates:
