KAMELOT Issue New Studio Video Update; Drum Recordings
June 7, 2012, 7 years ago
Florida-based bashers KAMELOT - who recently returned to the Steamhammer/SPV fold for a worldwide deal, excluding Japan (the band recently signed with King Records for Japan) - are currently working on their new album, and have uploaded new drum recordings footage with renowned sound engineer Jim Morris at the Morrisound Studios in Tampa, Florida. Check it out below:
The title of Kamelot’s current release will be announced at the end of June, together with the name of their new vocalist. However, according to guitarist and composer Thomas Youngblood , one thing is certain: “Our fans can really look forward to our new record, because it represents Kamelot in every way!”
Youngblood on the style and content of the concept album: “The new songs sound more symphonic and melodic than our last two studio recordings. The material brings to mind albums such as Karma (2001) and The Black Halo (2005). In addition, this will be the best production that Kamelot have ever delivered. Because while other acts tend to opt for low-budget productions due to the difficult market situation, we have gone the opposite way: the new album will be a real statement, in terms of our compositions as well as in terms of our sound.”
The eagerly awaited album has been scheduled for release on September 24th (Germany: September 21st; North America: September 25th), and Kamelot are set to play a number of festivals (among them Wacken Open Air and Bang Your Head) as early as July and August before embarking on a US tour alongside NIGHTWISH in September/October and a major headliner tour of Europe in November 2012. The band will headline four very special shows in the US in September and October, as well as a co-headlining show with SYMPHONY X in Mexico City on September 8th
