EPICA: 13 Songs Written For New Album

Dutch female-fronted symphonic metal band EPICA is currently working on material for its third full-length album. "We have about 13 songs which are growing every day," states vocalist Simone Simons. "Soon we will be able to play new songs live. Looking forward to it!"

EPICA's sophomore album, "Consign to Oblivion", was released in April 2005 via Transmission Records. The band issued its first DVD, "We Will Take You With Us / 2 Meter Sessies", in September 2004. The disc came in a limited-edition deluxe ECO-Book (containing a 40-page booklet) with an additional bonus CD containing all of the "2 Meter Sessies" recordings. EPICA also released the soundtrack to the Dutch movie "Joyride", entitled "The Score - An Epic Journey", last September.

EPICA has been confirmed to make its debut U.S. appearance at ProgPower USA VII festival on September 15 and 16 Earthlink Live in Atlanta. EPICA will then embark on a North American tour with KAMELOT, which will take them through mid-October.
