After the release of 2011’s "Break the Silence" (reviewed here) and the headlining tour which saw the band play in seven European countries, the world's only a Cappella metal band Van Canto have been dormant a while, but have now renewed their record contract with Napalm Records for the upcoming fifth release. In the interim time, band members have worked on numerous side projects – including Stef Schmidt's new Power Metal band Heavatar. The band is set to return in 2013 with a studio album targeted for the fall/winter.

Schmidt commented: "To take a break for a full year was quite odd for us. Maybe there are bands that are satisfied with releasing an album every 5 years, but for us it felt quite unnatural to stay away from the stage for a full year. We have checked out new things, and are now more eager than ever to return with Van Canto. We are happy that Napalm Records will be the partner for our fifth album. The album will be the most heroic, heaviest and most symphonic album in our discography, and we cannot wait to enter the studio. Rakkatakka Motherfuckers!"

Napalm Records A&R rep Nadir commented:
"Van Canto s innovative, unique and polarizing – that’s the best thing that can happen to a label. You must not let a band like this go, and that’s why we are proud that Van Canto continue to work with us. Together, we will shake the foundations of the Metal world!"
