APOCALYPTICA: 'Worlds Collide' U.S. Release Pushed Back To April

Finnish metal cellists APOCALYPTICA have had the U.S. release date of their new album, "Worlds Collide", pushed back once again — this time to April 15. The CD, which entered the Finnish chart at position No. 8 and also landed on both the German and Swiss charts at No. 10, was made available in standard and "deluxe" versions, the latter of which is described as "truly a work of art both in its artwork and its content." The "deluxe" edition contains two bonus tracks — "Ural" and "Dreamer" — as well as a DVD. The DVD contains the "I'm Not Jesus" video along with the "making of" footage, plus an interview from the listening session in Berlin and a photo gallery.

APOCALYPTICA is in the process of booking a U.S. tour, to take place in the spring. Exact cities and dates will be announced soon.

In other news, APOCALYPTICA has been nominated in the following categories at the Emma Gaala (Finnish Grammy equivalent):

* Metal Album Of The Year
* Band Of The Year
* Song Of The Year ("I'm Not Jesus")

Emma Gaala will be held on Saturday March 8, 2008 at Kulttuuritalo in Helsinki.

Also on the APOCALYPTICA-related front, the Finnish movie "Black Ice", which features a soundtrack composed entirely by APOCALYPTICA's Eicca Toppinen, has received nine nominations at the Finnish movie awards Jussi (including a nomination for Eicca in the "Best Music" category).

"S.O.S. (Anything but Love)", the latest video from APOCALYPTICA, can be viewed below. The clip, which features a guest appearance by LACUNA COIL singer Cristina Scabbia, was shot in Vilnius, Lithuania.

"Worlds Collide" features guest appearances by Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR), Till Lindemann (RAMMSTEIN), Cristina Scabbia (LACUNA COIL), Dave Lombardo (SLAYER), and Adam Gontier (THREE DAYS GRACE).

Germany's Rockster.tv conducted a 16-minute interview with APOCALYPTICA. Watch it at this location.
