Helloween Planning New Live Release For 2019, New Album To Follow In 2020

Helloween have announced that they will be releasing a new live CD/DVD/Blu-ray in early 2019. The effort will feature “the very best moments” from the band’s “Pumpkins United” tour, which sees former members Michael Kiskse and Kai Hansen performing alongside the band’s current lineup, Michael Weikath, Markus Grosskopf, Andi Deris, Sascha Gerstner, and Dani Löble. Furthermore, the group are also planning to release a new album with Kiske and Hansen in 2020.

The band posted the following:

“UNBEATABLE! đź’Ą

Among the massive PUMPKINS UNITED WORLD TOUR’s absolute open air highlights were, of course, the headliner slots at Wacken, Barcelona’s Rock Fest and Masters of Rock – but also the mega gigs with Iron Maiden at Sweden Rock Festival and Florence’s Firenze Rocks in June definitely were shows for all eternity.

For those, who mysteriously missed the tour, goosebumps footage of the PUMPKINS UNITED WORLD TOUR, will be released as a live CD as well as on DVD and Blu-ray beginning of 2019!!! As of now, the wait until the release can be shortened with a stream of the full Wacken show at Magenta Music 360 right here:

BUT HERE IT COMES!

As we are still indulging in the Wacken encore or preparing for the show in Las Vegas/ USA, those maniacs are already launching the next sensation: For starters, Nuclear Blast has insisted to keep the band on their roster for a few more years, and – double bass drum roll – there’ll actually be a brand-new STUDIO ALBUM with KISKE AND HANSEN. When the band around songwriting trio Weikath, Hansen and Deris will be retreating to the studio together with these two exceptional singers in 2019, it’s clear that the album scheduled for 2020 will be no less than EPIC. If this news doesn’t make you go all dewy, your proper rock baptism might not have happened yet – the rest of us are way over the moon as of now, because:

THE PUMPKINS UNITED DREAM CONTINUES!

Thanks to everyone who has been with us until now!

Grosskopf said the following:

“There’ll for sure be songs that we haven’t played in a very long time or even ever before. Whoever doesn’t secure tickets for this tour probably doesn’t have all their pumpkins in a row,”

Deris added:

“I’m so much looking forward to playing Michi’s and my tunes together with him live onstage. It’s going to be absolutely exceptional.”

Due to Dani’s sudden illness, the band has no choice but to postpone the scheduled Japanese tour starting this Sunday in Hiroshima. The promoter Creative Man Production Co., Ltd. is currently working on rescheduling the dates.
