MANOWAR will release the third single from the album Warriors Of The World to coincide with the start of their Warriors Of The World Tour 2002/2003.
The single will feature the album's opening song "Call To Arms", plus two brand new MANOWAR tracks, entitled "The Dawn Of Battle" and "I Believe". The latter two cuts mark the band's first new songs recorded outside their normal album production cycle.
"Call To Arms" will hit the streets in three different configuration: First — a standard CD-single with additional enhanced material such as excerpts from a documentary shot during the most legendary performance at the Ringfest 2002 in Cologne on August 17, 2002. Secondly — as a Premium CD-single with an additional DVD side, featuring the full documentary of the Ringfest 2002 and a teaser about the upcoming DVD release Fire & Blood in highest quality. Thirdly — as a picture vinyl featuring the brand new tour artwork painted by the famous Ken Kelly. All digital formats are equipped with the patented "CD connector/DVD connector" where the fans can easily access a special secured fansite. Here they can learn more about the upcoming tour and its "groundbreaking and always earth-shattering" production.
The single will be released on November 11th and will mark the start of the band's upcoming world tour, which will take the band to more than 13 countries with over 36 shows from November to December 2002.
