"What could be a better start into a new year? 2017 is our year!

"We cannot wait to enter the studios soon and finish 'Evocation II'. And right afterwards we'll be back with full force to rock the summer festival stages."

"Evocation II" is the long-awaited second part of ELUVEITIE's acoustic concept effort "Evocation".

ELUVEITIE in May 2016 announced the departure of drummer Merlin Sutter, vocalist Anna Murphy and guitarist Ivo Henzi.

The band's latest album, "Origins", was released in August 2014 via Nuclear Blast Records. The effort was once again recorded at New Sound Studio in Pfäffikon, a municipality in the canton of Zurich in Switzerland, with producer Tommy Vetterli (a.k.a. Tommy T. Baron; CORONER/ex-KREATOR guitarist).
