Get ready for TURISAS to paint your town red and black again! On the eve of their return to the renowned Download Festival in the UK the band revealed first details of their upcoming album: “Turisas2013”, which is scheduled for a September 2 release!
While the band will be playing selected festivals during the summer season the release of “Turisas2013” will be supported by extensive European touring with TURISAS joining Heidenfest 2013 in mainland Europe and doing their own headline tour in the UK in October.
Yet again the album was produced by vocalist Mathias Nygård and the majority of the album recorded by Nygård and guitarist Jussi Wickström in a remote house outside of Helsinki that worked as the “Turisas2013” command centre and head quarters.
With “Turisas2013” Mathias “Warlord” Nygård has said, “ 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.”
