Danish metallers MANTICORA have issued the following update:
"We have three shows left in 2009 — all headliner shows. The first one is in Lübeck, Germany, where we'll kill and destroy on Saturday, September 26 and the last two shows are in Copenhagen, Denmark on October 30 and Nakskov, Denmark on October 31.
"We are writing new material in between the shows. Five songs are more or less finished (musically) and we have tons of ideas for other songs, so there'll definitely be a new MANTICORA album in 2010!"
MANTICORA released its sixth full-length album, "The Black Circus Part 2 - Disclosure", in the U.S. in June 2007 via Locomotive. The companion CD to 2006's "The Black Circus, Part 1 – Letters" was mixed at the Jailhouse studios in Horsens, Denmark between January 25, 2007 and February 1 with producer Tommy Hansen (HELLOWEEN, TNT, PRETTY MAIDS, FATE).
The two-album "The Black Circus" concept project tells the story of the horrific perils of a traveling circus in the 19th century.
MANTICORA recorded a cover of TANKARD's "Total Addiction" ("a real thrash metal classic!!!" according to the band) for a TANKARD tribute album, which was released in August 2007 by AFM Records.
