Finntroll Will Announce New Vocalist "When The Time Is Right"

Finland's FINNTROLL have posted the following message on their official web site:

"Yes, FINNTROLL shall molest Europe throughout the summer at various festivals like: Wacken, Summer Breeze, Sauna Open Air (only show in Finland this year) and few others. We have a replacement for [vocalist] Wilska and we are very anxious to introduce this new face to you all...so don't worry. We will release OFFICIAL statement about this matter when we feel the time is RIGHT, so little patience please. At the moment things are quite hectic over here as we are working on new album, which will be (hopefully) released early next year."

FINNTROLL have secured the services of TWILIGHT MOON frontman Mathias Lillm?ns as the group's new lead singer. Lillm?ns is reportedly 23 years old, and like FINNTROLL's original vocalist, Katla Mathias, is Fenno-Swedish, with Swedish as his mother tongue.

FINNTROLL parted ways with frontman Tapio Wilska (SETHIAN, WIZZARD, former session vocalist for NIGHTWISH) in January after "reach[ing] a situation in which we [found] it impossible to continue FINNTROLL" with their previous vocalist, according to a statement issued by the group a short time after the split.

FINNTROLL in January completed a short North American tour with German thrashers SODOM. The band's next live appearance is scheduled for June 4 at the Rock Hard Festival in Gelsenkirchen, Germany.
