Sonata Arctica Announce “Acoustic Adventures – Volume One” And European Tour

Sonata Arctica have announced that they will be releasing a new acoustic album titled “Acoustic Adventures – Volume One” in October 2021. Volume Two will follow in 2022. With this news, the band have also announced the dates for their “Acoustic Adventures MMXXI” tour with Eleine.

Vocalist Tony Kakko said the following about the upcoming albums:

“This acoustic form of Sonata Arctica has been slowly brewing for years. The first manifestation of it, besides the few acoustic versions of songs released throughout the years, was the “Acoustic Adventures Tour” in 2019, which proved to be a great success, sparking an idea to get these songs also recorded and out on an album. Or two albums, at least for starters. Our songs have always been based on beautiful melodies, which makes it very easy to transform and rearrange them perfectly into the acoustic form as well. I should mention that many of the songs work so well dressed in acoustic garments.”

“I hope you love these albums as much as we do. There are many, many songs we had to leave out of these ”Volume One” and ”Volume Two” albums, so nothing would please me more than adding few more volumes in the future. Looking forward to seeing you on tour again as soon as possible!”

Keyboardist Henrik “Henkka” Klingenberg also added the following about the tour:

“Since our ‘Talviyö’ world tour is more or less over, it’s time to look ahead for the next challenge, and since we’ve had so much fun with the acoustic stuff, we decided to make an album as well, and, of course, we will hit the road immediately after that to celebrate the release of it. As of now, we have managed to set up an extensive European tour, and we’re really looking forward to getting out there an play some music for all of you.”
