Apocalyptica To Release New Album, Announces Tour Dates

Apocalyptica has checked in with the following announcement about releasing a new album and upcoming tour dates:

"After the recent feature projects, the upcoming new album is going to be 100% Apocalyptica and a new musical challenge at the same time: the band is working with Franky Perez as exclusive singer on the vocal tracks – this time not only during production, but for the whole cycle including the live shows.

"Perez released his debut in 2003, later teaming up with System of a Down’s Daron Malakian and John Dolmayan as Scars on Broadway. In 2009, Perez was announced on vocals of Slash’s solo band, followed by collaborations with Dave Kushner (Velvet Revolver) as well as Scott Shriner (Weezer), Joey Castillo (Queens of The Stone Age) and Dave Warren (The Simpsons) as Pusher Jones.

"After being honored as vocalist for The Doors at the L.A. Sunset Strip Music Festival, he released his latest album 'Addict' in 2013. For Eicca, Mikko, Paavo and Perttu working with Perez on the entire project elevates the musical vision to a new level of coherence between studio production and live performance. The new album will be out early 2015.

"The new material and exciting live show featuring Franky Perez can be witnessed live on the following dates – more cities and venues will be announced very soon."
