Edguy's upcoming EP "Superheroes," due on September 5, will feature a special guest appearance by former Helloween frontman Michael Kiske.

Edguy singer Tobias Sammet comments:

One of the tracks is a bombastic uptempo epic that's reminiscent of a mixture of heavy Queen, Richard Wagner and Avantasia. So it was a MUST to ask Michael Kiske to do some guest vocals.To me, music is about goose bumps, and I had a lot when listening to Michi! To make it fair, we have decided that the CD shall be out in stores for the price of a CD single only! So make sure you persuade your friends that they buy it and don't copy it, maybe quality and value for money could be a promising kind of 'copy-protection!

The "Superheroes" DVD — also due on September 5 — will contain the brand new video clip 'Superheroes', a couple of songs filmed live in Brazil, plenty of "behind-the-scenes" footage, a slide show, an extensive studio report with interviews and a chance to follow Edguy backstage. "Our fans will love the fun part of it and I'm sure to them it's a classic," states Sammet. "And I am sure Edguy haters will hate us even more and will think we are a bunch of wanna-be-funny-gay-idiots."

The DVD will have a running time of approximately 80 minutes and will be available for the price of a DVD-single as well.
