HELLOWEEN To Enter Studio In October

German power metallers HELLOWEEN will enter MiSueno Studio on the isle of Tenerife in October with producer Charlie Bauerfeind (GOTTHARD, HAMMERFALL) to begin recording a new album for a May 2015 release via Nuclear Blast.

HELLOWEEN's forthcoming CD will be the band's first since their return to Nuclear Blast, the label that previously released released two HELLOWEEN albums, "The Dark Ride" (2000) and "Rabbit Don't Come Easy" (2003), both of which were reissued last year with extended bonus material.

HELLOWEEN's last album, "Straight Out Of Hell", sold around 4,100 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 97 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD entered the Media Control chart in Germany at position No. 4 — the highest chart position in the band's history. It also landed at No. 4 in Finland and No. 2 on the international album chart in Japan.

"Straight Out Of Hell" was released in January 2013. The cover artwork for the CD was once again created by Martin Häusler, who previously worked with the band on the "7 Sinners" and "Gambling With The Devil" CDs.
