Xandria Comments On Signing To Napalm Records

Xandria has issued the following statement about the recent news of the band signing to Napalm Records:

"Finally we can present some very exciting news: there is a new Xandria album to come and we already roughly can reveal when this is going to hit record stores. We are working intensively to have the new longplayer out in early 2012!

"You all know why it took such a long time, but this was due to our search for THE right singer fit as well as for a few other business reasons. After Manuela had joined us in December last year, we got to speed in all essential business talks and finalized our songwriting, hence we are happy to announce that we now officially are part of the Napalm Records family!

"It took this time because we wanted to make sure that we would have the best conditions to record the new album the way we want it, and Napalm and us shared the same ideas, objectives and visions from the very beginning on. We are very confident Xandria and Napalm Records with its roster and expertise will make a great team! And last but not least, this past half a year with Manuela before starting to record the album was important to grow together as a band again, and also to let the songs combine with her new wonderful voice.

"We already have begun the recordings for the new album, to last throughout the rest of the summer. With mixing and the final mastering the work will be taking until end of this year, hence we are happy to proudly present the new album by early next year. In the meantime, Xandria will also be touring as part of the 'Out Of The Dark Festival Tour' along with VanCanto, Tristania, Serenity and Amberian Dawn, hitting European stages in early fall. More dates to be announced soon. please check our live dates' section online and watch out for a place near you to catch up with us!"

Band is the biggest waste of time. If you are/were a fan don't even think they're not going to through the motions yet again and replace their singer..AGAIN. The melodrama behind the scenes with the first singer and her replacement is also quite disgusting and stereotypical of all goth metal bands today.
