Amaranthe Enters Studio In September, New Release In 2013

Amaranthe, featuring Dragonland, Dreamland, Nightrage, Mercenary members and fronted by Elize Ryd (Kamelot (live)), are set to record the band's sophomore full length release. The band will enter the studio on September 24th to record the as of yet unnamed LP and follow up to the 2011 self-titled release for Spinefarm Records. The band will work again with producer Jacob Hansen in his Hansen studios in Ribe, Denmark. The album is set for a tentative early 2013 release.

Guitarist Olof Mörck had the following comments:

"So it is finally revelation time! In between our constant and never-ending touring we have tirelessly been working on our next album, which is really starting to come together. We have lived and breathed the same 12 songs from the first album every day for a year now, and to introduce a number of completely fresh tracks will really lift Amaranthe to the next level! The theme and atmosphere of the album is futuristic and ultra modern, something underlined by the first teaser poster. The music itself will be instantly recognisable as Amaranthe, but there is definitely a new and unique twist to the songs. People often ask us if there is a big pressure to follow up such a successful album, and always say 'no, not one bit'. Not when you sit down and listen to new tracks such as 'Invincible', 'Burn with Me' and 'Stardust'. We simply cannot wait to hit the road all over the world with these new babies!"

Amaranthe will make its U.S. live debut at ProgPower USA in Atlanta next month.
