ENSIFERUM Unveils New Mobile Application

Finnish Viking metallers ENSIFERUM have unveiled Mobile Twilight Tavern, the virtual hotline between fans and the band from anywhere in the world. Hear what happens on the road and in the backrooms exclusively through your mobile phone, in real time. In addition to viewing and sharing videos, pictures and messages, you can comment and rate material and also connect with other fans. Step into this secret world and have ENSIFERUM in your pocket, but at your own risk, because you never know what awaits once you ride with these sword-wielding Finns!

Mobile Twilight Tavern is compatible with most Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones as well as many LGs and Samsungs. iPhone and Nokia touch-screen versions will be published later this year.

ENSIFERUM will return to North America in November for a full headlining tour. Support will be provided by HYPOCRISY, EX DEO, BLACKGUARD and SWASHBUCKLE (on select dates).

"From Afar", the fourth album from Finnish folk metallers ENSIFERUM, sold around 900 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. (Note: Internet/digital sales **ARE** included in the SoundScan totals.) The CD landed at position No. 44 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

"From Afar" was released on September 9 via Spinefarm Records. The CD was produced by Tero Kinnunen (NIGHTWISH, AMORPHIS) and Janne Joutsenniemi ('Victory Songs' producer) and was mixed by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, SENTENCED, AMORPHIS).
