Helloween signs a new contract with Steamhammer / SPV The Hamburg, Germany native band which began in the 80's is one of the world's most successful acts, and their style has influenced countless bands over the course of 18 album releases. Helloween is one of the world's biggest live acts, and once again proved it at the Wacken Open Air in front of 40,000 excited fans. In 1987/1988, Helloween were under SPV distribution and brought Manfred Schuetz and SPV the house's first Gold albums for German sales - for 250,000 sold - for the metal masterpieces "Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part 1&2."

Original band member Michael Weikath: "SPV was our cornerstone and that is the basis of a successful partnership." SPV Managing Director: "Helloween is one of the first metal acts that brought the high standard of German heavy metal to the entire world. The amazing success of the first two Gold albums has stayed with me as one of my happiest memories and I'm proud that Helloween have signed directly to us at SPV/Steamhammer for the world."

The band will enter the studio together with producer Charlie Bauerfeind at the end of 2004 and begin the new album. The release is planned for Summer 2005, followed by a world tour for October 2005.
