KORPIKLAANI – introduce new fiddler and announce headlining tour!

KORPIKLAANI – introduce new fiddler and ... - 2012-02-22

2012-02-22 - Finnish traditional folk metal pioneers KORPIKLAANI are currently in the studio to record the successor of last year’s successful seventh album “Ukon Wacka” (Finland: #9 ; Switzerland: #53 ; Germany: #73 ; Austria: #75). On the yet untitled upcoming album, new fiddler Tuomas Rounakari will make his debut – regarding this, the band issues the following statement:

“We took Tuomas aboard when we noticed that he was actually the only sensible choice for us. We had already thought of him before but were always afraid that he’d be too busy to join us, because KORPIKLAANI demands much time from every band member. When we finally asked him, he replied that it’d be an exciting challenge and big chance for him, so he agreed to take over the fiddle for us – we’re more than happy about his decision! At the moment the whole band is gathered in the studio where we’ve recently entered the final stage of recording, with Jonne laying down his vocal lines and only a few folk parts waiting to be recorded. If all goes to plan, the album will be ready for mixing at the end of March.”

Get a first idea of Tuomas’ instrumental skills by watching this video of his solo project “Shamanviolin”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MDb7FGrCV8

Also, it won’t be long until you can see him on stage with KORPIKLAANI for the first time and enjoy the hilarious party atmosphere of the band’s notorious live shows on the following occasions:
