Within the next couple of days we will announce a few extra Stormwarrior appearances for this Summer. After a long period of repositioning, we have also decided on the label we will team up with for the future. We will update you on that shortly, as soon as the last formalities are in place.

We know you all have been waiting for a very long time now and we’re really sorry about that, but there are certain processes in this universe that simply are beyond our influence."

Stormwarrior To Release Live DVD

Germany's Stormwarrior has issued the following update about a DVD release and working on a new album:

"Hello Everybody! Over the last weeks we have received a lot of questions about the final release date of the long-awaited live DVD package 'If It’s Not In Your Bloode – You Will Never Understand'. Due to the fact that Stormwarrior has parted company with the Dockyard 1 label, and since DY1 was also designated to handle the promotional work for the live DVD package, we had to get to terms with a further delay of the release. We hope that you will understand that we were unable to update you on this, before we had the full overview of the situation. The DVD release will now be handled by Remedy Records in its entirety, as a one-off collaboration. We have not been given a final date yet, but the release of the package that we are all eagerly waiting for will definitely happen in the beginning of 2010.

"At the present, we are very exciting about working on new material for the next studio album. We are aiming for a Spring/Early Summer 2010 release of the follow-up to 'Heading Northe.' Furthermore, we are looking at possible Stormwarrior festival appearances and suitable tours for the New Year, so rest assured: We will see you guys out on the road in 2010. Until then we would like to thank YOU for your patience and wish you a Happy New Metal Year 2010!"
