KORPIKLAANI - announce new studio album! - 2018-04-06

2018-04-06 - Finnish Folk Metal Superstars KORPIKLAANI are happy to finally announce the release of their upcoming 10th studio album entitled »Kulkija« ("Wanderer"), on September 7th, 2018 through Nuclear Blast. Its cover was designed by Jan Yrlund (BATTLE BEAST, MANOWAR etc.), who has already created several artworks for previous albums and singles for the band.



Founding member Jonne Järvelä commented:
"We've never been as satisfied with a final result as we are with »Kulkija«. We tried to keep it very natural, and that's what you'll soon be able to hear clearly. Like the wanderer, this album is a journey, one that makes you feel good. Stay tuned!"

Accordionist Sami Perttula added:
"»Kulkija« isn't just a collection of songs, it's a "real" album with a unique atmosphere guiding the listeners through a long journey. All songs were well prepared in advance and nothing needed to be arranged in the studio. Tuomas [fiddle] & I had lots of space to develop and play the folk arrangements."

Since every album release needs to be celebrated in the right way, KORPIKLAANI are additionally announcing an accompanying Russian release tour, which will lead them through 13 cities in 16 days. The full itinerary can be found below.
