Amorphis: Releasing New Album Next Year, Announce Finnish Tour Dates

AmorphisYou know that I love me some Amorphis. While I find it hard to consider them a new band any more since they have already released 10 studio albums, they are one of the best of the more modern bands out there. If you have no checked them out yet, you really should.

Amorphis has announced that they will play seven club shows in Finland this December. The tour kicks off on December 5th in Oulu and ends in Tampere on December 29th. Check out the full dates below. The band will also start recording the follow-up to The Beginning of Times in September and expect to release the new album in spring 2013.

The band released the following statement: “Recordings for the eleventh Amorphis album will start in September at Petrax Studios in Hollola and 5K Studios in Helsinki. Lyrics will again be crafted by Pekka Kainulainen, who already collaborated with Amorphis on the previous three albums. The new album will be produced and recorded by Peter Tägtgren (Abyss Studio, Hypocrisy, Pain et al.) and released worldwide by Nuclear Blast in spring 2013.”
