KAMELOT has set "The Shadow Theory" as the title of its new album, due this spring via Napalm Records. The follow-up to 2015's "Haven" features all the signature elements of KAMELOT and also sees the band step out to add new and industrial elements along while combining amazing emotions that harken to the band's earlier days. The group's epic new music is chock full of symbolism relating to how the band feels about the world and the current state of civilization.
"The Shadow Theory" was recorded in Wolfsburg, Germany with producer Sascha Paeth.
KAMELOT guitarist Thomas Youngblood told Rock Overdose that the band's new material was harkening "back to the 'Ghost Opera' days a bit with 'Haven' elements."
Following the release of "The Shadow Theory", KAMELOT will embark on a massive world tour, starting in North America during April/May 2018, followed by European shows in the summer. The band will return to Europe in September/October 2018 for its biggest headlining tour to date.
The very first show of KAMELOT's fall 2018 European tour will take place on September 14 at 013 in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
Say the band: "Tilburg! KAMELOT returns to the Poppodium 013 to support their new album and to commemorate their very special relationship with the Dutch fans! There have been 10+ sold-out KAMELOT concerts there over the past few years. To thank you for your support, we are very pleased to announce we will be shooting this show as part of the band's long-awaited DVD! Don't miss this very special event!!"
"Haven" sold around 7,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD was made available in May 2015 via Napalm Records as part of an exclusive licensing deal through the band's Kamelot Music LLC.
