Helsinki, Finland’s AMBERIAN DAWN is set to release a compilation album of songs released on previous albums to showcase new singer Capri Virkkunen after the departure of Heidi Parviainen. The neoclassical power metal band will release Re-Evolution on June 17th (14th in Finland), distributed by Suomen Musiikki. There are also plans for digital distribution at the same time.
Comments guitarist Tuomas Seppala: “We all thought that the best way to introduce our new singer Capri to our fans is by re-recording a compilation album of our best songs. It was very important for us to give you all a broad overview about Capri’s great talent in all its facets and present her vocal sound and way of singing to you before we start recording a whole new studio album. We hope very much that you like the fresh sound created through Capri’s voice and the re-recording of the music parts which was necessary due to some required key changes. I believe that this compilation album is an excellent ‘visiting card’ of the new Amberian Dawn sound and style, all in all we all are really happy with the results we achieved.”
Re-Evolution was mixed by Mikko Mustonen and mastered by Henkka Niemisto at Chartmakers.

Meanwhile, a message from the band states: "We also announce that our bassist Jukka Koskinen won't be able to continue with us due his exreme tight schedule with his other band WINTERSUN. Amberian Dawn wishes Jukka all the best for his future and thanks him deeply for the work, effort and contribution he provided during all these years. Jukka still plays on half of the songs of Re-Evolution."
Jukka's statement reads: "I want to thank the band and especially the fans for the time I was on board with AD. Unfortunately I simply cannot dedicate anymore fully for the band that it needs due to busy times with Wintersun and etc."
