Finnish folk metallers Korpiklaani have issued the following statement regarding their upcoming co-headlining European tour with Eluveitie:

"After all this touring far abroad, we decided that it might be time for a new European tour, after all, we don't want to neglect all our great European fans and friends. So, we are happy to announce that we will team-up with our friends from Eluveitie for a co-headlining tour in October. This European Tour starts off at October 8th, and is the last chapter of our Karkelo World Tour, which started in April 2009 in the U.S.A. We will play 23 shows altogether, and we will visit Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Croatia, Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, France, Spain and England.

"Before the start of this European tour we will play at four festivals, like Summer Breeze in Germany, and the legendary Dynamo Open Air Holland in Eindhoven, Holland. In-between all festivals we managed to prepare, and even partly record, a new album at the Petrax studio in Hollola. Our upcoming album is scheduled for release in February 2011. Even though this new album will be released in winter, it definitely has a strong ‘midsummer-mood’. We are happy to announce, that one new song features a guest appearance from one of the most respected Finnish singers, and famous songwriter, who has been strongly present in the Finnish music culture for over three decades.

"Lately we have many troubles with Myspace, even uploading the flyer does not work, and adding shows gives many error messages. As soon as Myspace works okay again (which we still hope and wait for) we will put everything also online."
