Serenity Writing New Material

Austrian metallers Serenity have issued the following announcement about working on a new album:

"Serenity will play 2 more gigs in ..Tyrol.. right after our touring activities with Threshold!

14.11.2009 PMK in ....Innsbruck...., support Desert Sin & t.b.a.
21.11.2009 Prägraten in Osttirol, with Emergency Gate and Horizon Divine

"These will be the last shows you will see us promoting our latest album Fallen Sanctuary. We are in the middle of the songwriting process for the next big SERENITY release and we are already working with our producer Oliver Philips of Everon and our artworks designer Gustavo Sazes on the new material. We will take some more time right after the Threshold tour for finishing all new songs and for polishing structures, voice changes, soloing, vocal lines and of course lyrics. This will probably take time till January and we will head to the studio when we are ready. Luckily we are in a position where we are able to enter studio without a fixed time schedule a year ahead. And our preproduction will already include all orchestrations and voicings, so we won't need that much time for orchestrations and these things. This will save us at least 2 months!!!! Status Quo on the songs: 3 songs fixed, another ..4 in.. their final stages, ideas, parts, lines & basic structures for another 4-6 songs, and 2-3 songs were put away (not good enough in our meaning - by the way: we never did that before!)

"We do everything to make this release the best Serenity album ever and there's defenitely the potential therefor. But there's still a hard way to go. The recordings itself are not the biggest problem, but the songwriting seems to be a bit harder this time round... maybe because of our increased quality understanding. Who knows... We will take some time during the Threshold tour for fixing the lyrical concept and for another eliminating round with our recorded ideas. I see some discussions heading towards us... aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

"Now lets give you an impression of what to expect by our next release: release date: somewhen in the second half of 2010 by Napalm Records artworks: by Gustavo Sazes, probably a more historical, epic & royal feel production: Oliver Philips is our producer once again and this time is THE BOSS, coproduced by Georg Neuhauser & Buchberger Thomas, arranged by Oli & SERENITY, vocal recordings by Lanvall (Edenbridge), drum recordings in Dreamscape Studios munich, guitars & bass & keys recordings by Thomas Buchberger, additional recordings wherever it fits the best mix & mastering: we are working on that music video: once again with Robert Geir and the Wildruf team guest musicians: a whole lot of them, especially female singers (some big names!!!!) The songs: fast & melodic stuff, mid tempo & 'hitsingle' style songs, ballads,.... well - everything SERENITY is known for with a more epic feel than ever before."
