Danish/American hard rockers ROYAL HUNT have issued the following update:"A new album is in the works. Recordings will start during the summer, so we're expecting it to be released in October/November 2007. Fans of the 'large format bombastic soundscapes' — rejoice! "We've started to review the video footage for the future re-packaging/re-release of the two of our live concerts: '1996' and 'Closing the Chapter'. No release dates as of yet, but we'll keep you posted. "We'll be playing some shows this early spring, so keep an eye on [the group's official web site]." ROYAL HUNT released a DVD and double live album, entitled "Royal Hunt 2006" in November. The set was recorded (and filmed) on the historic stage of St. Petersburg, Russia's Music Hall on November 2, 2005. The show, which was witnessed by some 1,500+ enthusiastic fans, lasted about two hours (the band played a wide selection of songs from all of their releases since 1991 and some tracks from the latest CD, "Paper Blood") and was captured by six cameras. The DVD package also includes backstage/pre-production footage as well as interviews with all the bandmembes and their roadcrew. All mixing duties on the double CD were handled by André Andersen at NorthPoint Productions in Copenhagen. The set was mastered by Jan Eliasson at Audio Planet. ROYAL HUNT's last album, "Paper Blood" was recorded at NorthPoint Productions and was mixed at EMI/Medley Studio with André Andersen (keyboards) and Lars Overgaard behind the board.
