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

Sonata Arctica’s new acoustic album “Acoustic Adventures – Volume One” has been delayed until January 21, 2022. Furthermore, the band have also postponed their “Acoustic Adventures MMXXI” tour with Eleine until fall 2022.

Keyboardist Henrik “Henkka” Klingenberg commented:

“Despite of the circumstances slowly getting better, we will unfortunately have to postpone our Acoustic Adventures European Tour that was supposed to happen this fall. This is not a light decision by any means but right now we cannot go forward with the tour as planned. However we will be back in 2022, postponed doesn’t mean canceled. Our Acoustic Adventures – Volume One album will also be released a few months later than originally planned but rest assured, it will be worth the wait. We’re really looking forward to getting out there again and play for you all, rather sooner than later. Meanwhile, take care.”

Vocalist Tony Kakko added:

“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.”
