Finnish female-fronted symphonic metallers AMBERIAN DAWN have issued the following update:"We have some great news from AMBERIAN DAWN's headquarters here in Finland. "Many of you are waiting for a new AMBERIAN DAWN studio album. Tuomas [Seppälä; keyboards, guitar] has already penned 10 new awesome songs and those are ready to be recorded in fall 2013. We're doing this without financial support of record labels and now you can help us make it happen. This album is planned to come out in early 2014. "We want to do this together with you and we will offer you some very special extras. We have the 'traditional' merch things like MP3's and signed CDs but also our own personal stuff: band gear, instruments, stage clothes etc. You could also have your name written on the booklet of this CD. All pledges are included with MP3 download package. Shipping fee is always included on prices. "We have so far toured three times in Europe and have enjoyed every minute. We want to do it again. If we'll get 200% of our initial goal raised, we can manage to arrange a tour too. This tour could be arranged in 2014. "Now you can be part of AMBERIAN DAWN family and help us making this new album and tour again." AMBERIAN DAWN released a compilation album of songs that originally appeared on their first four albums — "Circus Black" (2012), "End Of Eden" (2010), "The Clouds Of Northland Thunder" (2009) and "River Of Tuoni" (2008) — to showcase new singer Päivi "Capri" Virkkunen after the departure of Heidi Parviainen. "Re-Evolution" was made available on June 14 in Finland, distributed by Suomen Musiikki. "Re-Evolution" was mixed by Mikko Mustonen and mastered by Henkka Niemisto at Chartmakers. A music video for the song "Kokko - Eagle Of Fire" can be seen below. The clip was produced by Routafilmi, which is the same company that made the AMBERIAN DAWN's "Arctica" video. AMBERIAN DAWN parted ways with vocalist Heidi Parviainen in November 2012. Her final appearance with the band was at the Metal Female Voices Fest at the end of October 2012 in Belgium.
