Battlelore Hard At Work On New Material

Vocalist Tomi Mykkänen of the Finnish "fantasy metal" band BATTLELORE has issued the following update:

"First of all, we have been working on the new songs lately and at the moment we actually have some 10 songs in very good 'skeleton phase.' Looks extremely positive so far. The music is getting a few steps back in our history and a few steps forward to the future.

"At the moment it seems that there will be bigger, more epic parts in the vein of 'Sword's Song' but also more harder, heavier parts in the vein of 'Evernight'. I'm quite sure that you fans won't be disappointed with this one. The album should be out sometime in June/July/August 2008.

"We have some more gigs coming up. For all you cool North Americans I must say that still no good news for you. We would love to come 'over the deep waters' and play for all of you but it's really not up to us. You need to buy more albums and ask from the local organizers for us... maybe someday then.

"Finally we have a few more Finnish gigs coming up. Seems that our homeland is finally starting to get our idea. Our first UK gig in a long time is also confirmed to be in late February 2008 in Swansea, Wales. There is a big possibility for more UK gigs this coming December as we've been talking about a small tour around the middle December and that one should have some five or so UK dates.

Upcoming BATTLELORE shows:

Nov. 19 - Helsinki, Finland at Nosturi
Nov. 20 - Tampere, Finland at Klubi
Feb. 23 - Swansea, Wales - Sin City Club

BATTLELORE released its fourth album, "Evernight", in North America on March 13, 2007 via Napalm Records. The CD was issued in Europe in February.

The follow-up to 2005's "Third Age of the Sun", "Evernight" was recorded at MusicBros Studio and was produced by Miitri Aaltonen, who previously worked with the Finnish "fantasy metal" band on their first two CDs, "...Where The Shadows Lie" (2002) and "Sword's Song" (2003). The mastering duties were handled at Finnvox Studios.
