KAMELOT Prepare To Hit The Road

KAMELOT mainman Thomas Youngblood has posted the following message on the group's web site:

"Today we begin the rehearsals for the second round of tour dates for 'The Black Halo'. New keyboardist Oliver arrives tonight in Tampa and we will have Khan [vocals] here on next week. We will add some new songs that we did not play on the last tour dates in Europe. So fans in Belgium and Holland will see a new set! I also hope to get some new pictures taken while Oliver is.

"The U.S./Canadian shows are looking more and more exciting, I have been talking with Jack Frost (SEVEN WITCHES) about it and we are going to have a monster time on stage and with all the fans!

"The dates in Brazil are now set for Sao Paulo and Rio and we will be shooting lots of footage for the upcoming DVD slated for summer 2006. All the shows on this second tour will hopefully be part of the DVD and we are planning some very special surprises with this production.

"Norwegian fans! We are finally coming to see you! I guess we can try some skiing this time in Trysil? Holland and Belgium will rule too, Graspop was amazing.

"Our friends EPICA will play the Antwerp show with us.

"We are waiting on details regarding the French gigs in Paris and Lyon. I hope to have some news from our management this weekend on that. We are expecting new dates planned for the summer festivals as well.

"OK, got to go, lots to do! I hope to see all of you at the shows!"

KAMELOT are continuing to promote their latest album, "The Black Halo", released in March through SPV Records. The follow-up to 2003's "Epica" was produced by Sascha Paeth and Miro at Gate and Pathway studios in Germany and features guest appearances by Shagrath (DIMMU BORGIR), Jens Johansson (STRATOVARIUS), Simone Simons (EPICA), Mari (MASQUERAID), as well as the KAMELOT choir, featuring Herbie Langhans (SEVENTH AVENUE), Amanda Somerville-Scharf, Miro, Gerit Göbel, Thomas Rettke (HEAVEN'S GATE) and Elisabeth Kjaernes, among others.
