Turisas Reveals Details For New LP "Turisas2013"

Finland's Turisas announced that the follow-up to "Stand Up & Fight" (reviewed here) will be entitled "Turisas2013." The album is scheduled for release on August 26th (EU), September 2nd (UK) and September 3rd (North America) via Century Media Records.

The album was produced again by vocalist Mathias Nygård, with the majority of the album recorded by Mathias Nygård and guitarist Jussi Wickström in a remote house outside of Helsinki that worked as the “Turisas2013” command centre and head quarter.

Additional recordings were done in other studios: the drums at Atomic Spa Studio and orchestral recordings at 5 by 5 Studio, both in Helsinki. A large portion of the vocals and numerous additional acoustic elements were recorded at Sound Supreme Studio in Hämeenlinna where Turisas also recorded “The Varangian Way” and “Stand Up And Fight”. The mix and mastering was done by London based producer Jaime Gomez Arellano who has previously worked with Ghost, Primodial and Ulver, just to name a few.

According to a press release, the band "deliberately aimed for a more organic sound" this time around, and Mathias “Warlord” Nygård further comments: 'When it comes to the production it's just the opposite of the polished and massive ‘Stand Up And Fight’. It's raw and dry and in your face, but still maintaining that Turisas-largeness. People attest us that we are a great live band and we wanted the album to be based more around that than orchestral massiveness. It's our most varied record to date and even if some of the songs sound very different, I think the common thread is that every single one has a lot of energy to it.'"

While the band will be playing selected festivals during the summer season the release of “Turisas2013” will be supported by extensive European touring with the band joining the Heidenfest 2013. Dates are available after the jump.
