Sonata Arctica have confirmed that they have been in the studio recording a new album, which is expected to be released in 2019. With this news, the band have also announced a European acoustic tour with Witherfall.
Keyboardist Henrik “Henkka” Klingenberg commented:
“We’ve been locked up in the studio since the end of the summer working on our next studio album and decided we needed to take a break and go out and play some shows.
In the summer of 2016, we did an acoustic summer tour in Finland which was a lot of fun for both us and our fans; in fact, it was so great that we wanted to do it again and this time we’re not settling for just Finland — but taking this show all around Europe for the first time ever.
Now is a unique chance to hear our music in a completely different setting and we’re sure these evenings will be something really special. Our set will also include some stuff we’ve never played live before, and who knows — maybe even a new song from the upcoming album. See you at the shows!”
