KAMELOT In Montpellier: Quality Performance Footage Of Two New Songs Posted Online

Fan-filmed video footage of American/Norwegian melodic metallers KAMELOT performing two brand new songs, "The Great Pandemonium" and "Hunters Season", on April 2, 2010 in Montpellier, south of France can be viewed below.

Singer Simone Simons of Dutch symphonic metallers EPICA recorded her vocal parts that will be featured on KAMELOT's forthcoming CD. Simone joins KAMELOT vocalist Roy Khan on the band's newest ballad, "House On A Hill", as well the title track of KAMELOT's new album.

Simone — the longtime girlfriend of KAMELOT keyboardist Oliver Palotai — previously appeared on the song "The Haunting", which was included on KAMELOT's 2005 album "The Black Halo".

KAMELOT spent time at various studios — including the Gate Studio in Wolfsburg, Germany — under the watchful eye of Sascha Paeth and Miro as producers working on the highly anticipated follow-up to "Ghost Opera". A late spring/early summer release is expected.

"The new songs are really inspiring," stated guitarist Thomas Youngblood. "We feel the long touring and time away from writing has been perfect for new ideas and an aggressive approach to the new songs."

KAMELOT will embark on its first North American tour in two years this fall. Support on the trek will come from LEAVES' EYES and BLACKGUARD.

KAMELOT's upcoming tour will finally bring the band to cities it never played before in its career, including Philadelphia and Milwaukee. As an added treat, KAMELOT will offer special VIP ticketing in select cities. These tickets will include:

* Meet-and-greet with the band
* Early entrance to venue 60 minutes prior to door
* VIP laminate
* Signed poster
* VIP t-shirt
* One special VIP item yet to be determined

Fans with VIP tickets will gain entrance one hour prior to door times and will be permitted to stay in the venue once the meet-and-greet is finished.

Tickets are on sale at EnterTheVault.com and all normal ticketing systems.

Bassist Glenn Barry left KAMELOT in December and was replaced by Sean Tibbetts.
