AMORPHIS has done a lot of touring for the past two years around the globe and now it's time to head back to the studio. This means that the new album will be released next year! It has also been a really nice experience for all of us to play with [returning bassist] Olli-Pekka [Laine] again and for that reason, we're glad to have him participating in the making of the new record.
"Nuclear Blast CEO Markus Staiger
added: "I'm really proud that we can continue working with AMORPHIS, one of the early Nuclear Blast bands, which went through the roof with 'Tales From The Thousand Lakes' back in 1994. Additionally, they became really good friends of ours, which makes this working relationship even cooler. I'm already looking forward to their next album, because it's simply impossible for AMORPHIS to deliver a bad record.
