WINTERSUN, the Finnish band led by former ENSIFERUM singer Jari Mäenpää, has been confirmed for next year's Bloodstock Open Air festival, set to take place August 14-16, 2009 at Catton Hall in Derbyshire, England. Also scheduled to appear is Sweden's SABATON.
Tickets went on sale on September 1 at this year's price of £85.00. As of December 15, the ticket prices will be increasing. The organizers state, "We have decided, as always, for our fans loyalty to offer the early-bird ticket prices for a limited time. This will give you the chance to get next year's tickets at this year's prices!"
WINTERSUN is continuing work on its long-awaited new album, "Time", tentatively due in August 2009. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Sons of Winter and Stars", "Land of Snow and Sorrow", "Time", "Fire", "One with the Shadows", "Storm" and "Silver Leaves".
The band previously described the upcoming album as containing "seven epic songs and quite long ones. It's a theme album. The music has some new dimensions, but has also the recognizable 'WINTERSUN style.'"
