Delain To Release “Hunter’s Moon” In February

Delain have announced that their “Hunter’s Moon” release will be available on February 22. The effort will include four new tracks, ten live songs, and a Blu-ray that was shot at Utrecht Tivoli. That set featured Nightwish’s Marco Hietala and other guests.

“Hunter’s Moon” Track Listing:

01. “Masters Of Destiny”
02. “Hunter’s Moon”
03. “This Silence Is Mine”
04. “Art Kills”
05. “Hands Of Gold” – Live (feat. George Oosthoek)
06. “Danse Macabre” – Live
07. “Scarlet” – Live
08. “Your Body Is A Battleground” – Live (feat. Marco Hietala)
09. “Nothing Left” – Live (feat. Marco Hietala)

11. “Sing To Me” – Live (feat. Marco Hietala)
12. “Not Enough” – Live
13. “Scandal” – Live (feat. Marco Hietala)
14. “The Gathering” – Live (feat. Marco Hietala)

The band said the following about the new songs:

“Along with the live Blu-ray are four new studio tracks. Two of these offer a preview of what we are working on for our new full-length studio album, which we expect to release in 2019. ‘Masters Of Destiny’ is a dramatic, cinematic track that we’re excited to shoot an equally dramatic video for this week. The title track, ‘Hunter’s Moon’, has more of a catchy feel and will hopefully appeal to our fans featuring heavy riffs, orchestrations, a large chorus and as a novel feature, Timo’s screams. Our guitarists stepped to the forefront on this release in writing ‘This Silence Is Mine’ (Timo Somers) and ‘Art Kills’ (Merel Bechtold). With fond live memories, classic and new sounds we’re excited to present ‘Hunter’s Moon’ to the world!”

They also added the following about the Blu-ray:

“The ‘Moonbathers’ tour has been a hell of a ride and the ‘Danse Macabre’ shows were an absolute highlight. We are excited to share the footage of our show at Tivoli Vredenburg with you on this brand new Blu-ray. It was great to finally perform all of our collaborations with Marco live, something our fans have been asking for for such a long time! Also gracing the stage were George Oosthoek, who gave his signature sound to ‘Hands Of Gold’, and Elianne Anemaat, who adorned ‘Scarlet’ with her beautiful cello tones. The Tivoli show had such an amazing atmosphere and was one of the highlights of our career. Plus a home match for some of us! We are thrilled to have this Blu-ray as a physical souvenir of the night and we hope that our fans will enjoy it as much as we did.”

Hietala commented as well:

“I was really pleased to do the tour, because it gave me a chance to challenge myself in different surroundings and band dynamics. In the end, it comes down to the same old but great thing. I love doing good shows with good people for good audiences. All for one and one for all!”

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! 💥

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:

https://www.magenta-musik-360.de/helloween-pumpkins-united-…

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!
