full press release:
AMARANTHE to record new album!
Sweden's modern melodical metal sensation will enter the studio in September 24th to record their sophomore album, the follow-up to 2011's 'AMARANTHE', their wildy successful debut album - which charted in a number of countries and took them on the road across the world. AMARANTHE went from newcomer to seasoned live veterans with over a hundred shows, they became the most played rock band on Swedish rock radio and won the prestigious "breakthrough of the year award" at the Bandit awards. The last few shows on their first touring cycle included the world's biggest rock festival Wacken Open Air, and a hometown headline show which both had audiences of 10 000+. For ther next album they will once more work with producer Jacob Hansen, in his Hansen studios in Ribe Denmark. The as of yet untitled album will be tentatively out in early 2013.
Commented guitarist Olof Mörck:
"So it is finally revelation time! In between our constant and never-ending touring we have tirelessly been working on our next album, which is really starting to come together. We have lived and breathed the same 12 songs from the first album every day for a year now, and to introduce a number of completely fresh tracks will really lift Amaranthe to the next level! The theme and atmosphere of the album is futuristic and ultra modern, something underlined by the first teaser poster. The music itself will be instantly recognisable as AMARANTHE, but there is definitely a new and unique twist to the songs. People often ask us if there is a big pressure to follow up such a successful album, and always say "no, not one bit". Not when you sit down and listen to new tracks such as 'Invincible', 'Burn with Me' and 'Stardust'. We simply cannot wait to hit the road all over the world with these new babies!"
