"Clearly no time to sit back & relax, as the pumpkin heads will heading right for their very own MiSueno Studios, located on the isle of Tenerife to start working on the successor of 'Straight Out Of Hell' in October. Joining the band to handle production duties will be long-term companion Charlie Bauerfeind. The new album which is set for a release in May 2015 will be the first since Helloween have inked a new deal with old label home Nuclear Blast, where they released two albums - 'The Dark Ride' (2000) and 'Rabbit Don’t Come Easy' (2003), both of which have been re-issued with extended bonus material in 2013.

"Last but not least, HELLOWEEN would like to send out a big 'Thank You' to all the Helloween Maniacs worldwide with some live impressions of the title track of the charting success 'Straight Out Of Hell' turned out to be, landing on a sensational #4, their highest German chart entry to date, holding this position for five long weeks.

To me Straight Out Of Hell is an album I always compare with Kiske's Pink Bubble Go Ape album. After that came Chameleon, an absolute rock bottom. I hope the new album won't be Deris' Chameleon. Although I find it very interesting if it is possible to sink lower than rock bottom.
