Turisas Reveals New Album Details

Finnish symphonic metal act Turisas has set "Stand Up And Fight" as the title of its forthcomingn third album. The new record will be released through Century Media Recordsin North America on February 8, 2011.

Turisas frontman Mathias "Warlord" Nygard commented on the album by saying:

"After a 16-month break from touring, focusing fully on the work on our third album, I'm happy to tell you that we're DONE! The workload has been enormous, and at times I've wished I'd known better, formed a punk rock band and kept things simple! But to achieve real progress, you really have to dig deep and see what you're made of. Take bites so big, you almost choke. We've stayed true to our ideology of releasing music only when we have something new to come out with, not repeating ourselves or just copying what we've done in the past to feed the market. Now that we're done with studios, we're all extremely excited to get back on the road again, and as our latest visit to North America is long overdue, coming over in January with Cradle Of Filth is something we're all very much looking forward to. We had a great time touring with them in Europe in 2009, so this should be killer! Now we only have to figure out how to play these new songs!"

Be'lakor Updates Tour Schedule With Turisas

Australia's Be'lakor has issued the following update about their upcoming tour dates with Turisas:

"Hey everyone, as most of you hopefully know, there has been a change for the Turisas tour. We are still supporting Turisas for their Aussie tour, however, as we announced recently, the Brisbane date (Friday May 21st) has been canceled. (For some reason, despite the fact that we have deleted this show from our tour calender on Myspace, it is still showing up on our page - please IGNORE this date). The problems with the tour were a result of Just Say Rock pulling out of their role as the event promoter/organizer.

"Luckily, Soundwave Touring has taken over the tour - but the Brisbance date has been dropped (this was not our call of course). So, apologies to all Brisbane-based fans. The following dates are still correct: SYDNEY Saturday 22nd May - The Factory Theatre (All Ages), MELBOURNE Sunday 23rd May - Billboard the Venue."

Turisas Recording New Album

Finnish metallers Tursisas have begun tracking for their third full-length album, which is tentatively set for an early fall release. The group are currently holed up at Sound Supreme Studios in Hämeenlinna, Finland – the same studio where they recorded their previous album "The Varangian Way." Turisas have just posted the first part of their ongoing video series documenting the entire recording process, which can be viewed below.

Vocalist, songwriter, and producer Mathias Nygård comments: “After a nine-month break from touring to fully focus on songwriting, we've finally moved forward and have now started recording. It's going to be a long project and is bound to keep us all busy through the summer, but believe me; it will be worth the wait. With three years between albums, there's been enough time to find a fresh angle and new ideas not to repeat ourselves or albums we've done in the past. The songs rock big time, but the epic elements aren't going anywhere – it's going to sound larger than ever before. The leap forward is going to be just as big as between Battle Metal and The Varangian Way. Stay tuned to our YouTube page for new video reports from the studio and we can’t wait to unleash this beast in a few months.” More...
