Hammerfall Announces New Single Release

Hammerfall today announces the release of the "Bushido" single, taken from upcoming new record "(r)Evolution." The single will be released on July 18th on a limited vinyl edition, as well as digitally. The tracklist will be:

A: Bushido
B: The Way Of The Warrior (remixed by Fredrik Nordström)

Pre-orders are available here and Guitar player Oscar Dronjak comments:

“This album has more single quality songs than anyone we've ever done before, as evidenced by the fact that pretty much the only single choice we all could agree on was 'Bushido'. It captures the essence HammerFall as much as any other song we have ever written, and it is one of the absolute strongest efforts from our camp, ever. It's filled with energy, hunger and pure adrenaline, and if you don't like this one, you have no love for HammerFall heavy metal!”

The artwork for the "Bushido" single was done by Samwise Didier. The full "(r)Evolution" album will be out August 29th (EU), Sept. 1st (UK) and Sept. 2nd (USA) via Nuclear Blast Records. More...

Sweden's Hammerfall has checked in with the following announcement about entering the recording studio:

"Hammerfall will record a new studio album starting on Monday, and we will once again use Fredrik Nordström as a producer.

"For the cover art, we have enlisted Andreas Marschall for the first time since 'Renegade,' so the artwork should be something very special. The yet-untitled album will be released on August 29th, 2014, and on that same day we will do a show at the amusement park Liseberg in Göteborg.

"It will serve as a huge release party and the kick-off of the next HammerFall era. There you have it, in a nut shell."

Hammerfall To Release Album, Play Wacken 2014

Two years ago, the Swedish heavy metal templars from Hammerfall announced a creative break after celebrating the 15th anniversary of their debut "Glory To The Brave."

“We are taking a pause to ensure that we have another 15 years ahead of us," previously said Oscar Dronjak. Singer Joacim Cans added: “The plan is to use the year off to recharge our batteries and come back more vital than ever with a new album in 2014."

Hammerfall is now proud to announce a performance at the 25th anniversary of the 2014 Wacken Open Air. And the show won’t be a standard one! Oscar Dronjak explains:

“It’s very fitting that, when Wacken celebrates its 25th anniversary, they will get a proper 'Glory To The Brave' anniversary show. This will be a throwback show to the European gig that launched it all for us: Wacken Open Air 1997. The set list will consist of all the songs from the first album and we'll of course add some newer songs at the end. We will do this very unique show at Wacken and nowhere else, so if you miss it, you missed it.”

In August 2014 the new and yet-untitled studio album of Hammerfall will be released. There will also be a single – released on vinyl and digitally – upfront in June. More...

Hammerfall Vocalist To Perform In "Rock Of Ages"

Joacim Cans, vocalist of the Swedish metal band Hammerfall, is confirmed to play the part of Dennis Dupree in the Swedish stage version of the award winning musical “Rock of Ages.” Cans gave following statement about the show:

"I am very psyched and honored to be part of this fantastic hard rock musical. Not only will I explore a brand new genre, but I will also get to try my acting skills and perform with the Swedish elite when it comes to both comedy, acting and singing."

Nuclear Blast Records also commented: "Rock of Ages is a rock/jukebox musical, with a book by Chris D'Arienzo, built around classic rock hits from the 1980s, especially from the famous glam metal bands of the decade. The musical features songs from Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Twisted Sister and Europe, among other well-known rock bands. Set in LA’s infamous Sunset Strip in 1987, Rock of Ages tells the story of Drew, a boy from South Detroit, and Sherrie, a small-town girl, both in LA to chase their dreams of making it big and falling in love. This five-time Tony Award nominated musical takes you back to the times of big bands with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair! The show premieres at 'Chinateatern' in Stockholm on February 21st 2013.

"On the upcoming Friday, the new Hammerfall DVD 'Gates Of Dalhalla' will be released. The DVD was recorded and dircted by Patric Ullaeus (Dimmu Borgir, Children Of Bodom, In Flames a.o.). It will be released as a DVD/2CD and Blu-Ray/2CD. Watch the two trailers below." More...

Hammerfall Reveals "Gates Of Dalhalla" Details

On the occasion of a well-deserved time-out in 2012/13, a testimonial of Hammerfall’s on-stage power in a DVD+2CD format will be released on November 30th. For this, the 135 minute long 15-year anniversary show that took place on the 28th of July on the historic open-air stage Dalhalla, built in an old quarry near the small Swedish village Rättvik, was captured on camera.

Oscar Dronjak comments: "The set contained 26 tracks and lasted 2 hours and 15 minutes, by far the longest and most comprehensive gig of our entire career! We played songs from every album and then some, there were lots of guests and pyros, and we had 80 Marshall cabinets and the big shield with the HF logo carved out in the middle hanging brought out of storage, all set in an extremely unique venue. You really have to see it to understand, this concert really captured the essence of HammerFall live in 2012 very well!"

Prominent guests included original Hammerfall line-up members Jesper Strömblad and Mikael Stanne, as well as ex-guitarist Stefan Elmgren, among others, which made the show unforgettable - also for the musicians themselves.

"Everything concerning this release is special: the venue, the occasion, the setlist, the guests. If you are going to celebrate something, do it properly, and this is exactly what we have done. Hammerfall with extra everything, 100% live, 0% bullshit," says Oscar. The show's set list is: More...

HammerFall To Take Extended Break

Swedish power metal band HammerFall announced that the band will take an extended break after celebrating the 15th anniversary of the first LP "Glory to the Brave" in 2012. Guitarist Oscar Dronjak commented: "It has been an unbelievable first 15 years, to say the least and now we are taking a pause to ensure that we have another 15 years ahead of us."

There will be no HammerFall activities in 2013, but singer Joacim Cans promises to return strong the following year: “The plan is to use the year off to recharge our batteries and come back more vital than ever with a new album in 2014."

The band will perform its two biggest shows of the year at Dalhalla in Sweden, on July 28th, and Wacken Open Air in Germany one week, where a proper 15th anniversary is planned. Cans commented on the shows: “Obviously, the gig to attend is the one in Dalhalla, that will be the biggest and most special show we have ever done! Two hours of music, special effects and guest artists! But we will not forget that it all started at Wacken for us once upon a time."

Dronjak also commented: "This is why we have decided to pull out all the stops for these two shows, and really make them special. It will be a fitting end to the first 15 years of our career."
