KAMELOT Putting Finishing Touches On New Album

KAMELOT is at a studio in Wolfsburg, Germany putting the finishing touches on its new album with producer Sascha Paeth. The follow-up to 2015's "Haven" will be released in early 2018 via Napalm.

KAMELOT singer Tommy Karevik wrote in a new Instagram post: "[I am] very excited about making these songs come to life as we are taking some of them on the road for the U.S. tour in April. There are definitely some very solid, atmospheric soundscapes coming your way! Sascha and the rest of the guys are really bringing their 'A' game on this one. Fresh KAMELOT out of the box. Can't wait to share it with all of you and hopefully hear you guys sing along to the new songs. That is really the best feeling."

KAMELOT guitarist and main songwriter Thomas Youngblood recently told Rock Overdose that the band's new material was harkening "back to the 'Ghost Opera' days a bit with 'Haven' elements."

KAMELOT will return to North America in April/May 2018 to support the upcoming album. The first tour behind the disc will see the band performing in the United States and Canada, bringing their biggest production and package in the group's history. The tour will venture north and into Canada before extending through the Midwest, ultimately reaching the West Coast before circling back to the South, capping it off with a huge Orlando and Fort Lauderdale finale.

Joining KAMELOT and bringing their unique brand of symphonic metal to the tour are very special guests DELAIN from The Netherlands. Rounding off the package for a metallic triple punch are Finland's own BATTLE BEAST.

"Haven" sold around 7,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD was made available in May 2015 via Napalm Records as part of an exclusive licensing deal through the band's Kamelot Music LLC.

Produced by Sascha Paeth and mastered by Jacob Hansen, "Haven" featured guest appearances by Alissa White-Gluz (ARCH ENEMY, ex-THE AGONIST), Troy Donockley (NIGHTWISH) and Charlotte Wessels (DELAIN). The cover artwork was created by Stefan Heilemann and additional art/layout was done by Gustavo Sazes.
