Amaranthe announce new album for Autumn 2014 via Spinefarm Records

Amaranthe

Amaranthe – the modern metal sextet from Gothenburg, Sweden – have confirmed an autumn 2014 release date for their new studio album via Spinefarm Records; as yet untitled, this latest outing will be the follow-up to ‘Amaranthe’ (2011, now gold in Sweden) and ‘The Nexus’ (2013). See a teaser pic for the new album below.

These two releases, which defined the band’s approach through their signature blend of musical styles and voices, caused an international stir right from the start; not only did ‘The Nexus’ top the rock chart in Sweden, but it went straight to # 1 on the US iTunes Metal Chart as well, whist the videos (from both albums) have continued to clock up millions of views (‘Hunger’, from Album 1, is now at the 6 million-plusmark).

The success of these records saw Amaranthe playing to audiences all over the world, and now – following shows across Europe, including an appearance at the Bandit Awards in Stockholm where one of the band’s three singers, Elize Ryd, received the ‘Rock n’ Role Model’ Award – the six will head back into the studio.

According to guitarist, Olof Morck: “2014 will indeed see the release of the next Amaranthe record. We don’t want to reveal any details yet, apart from this album representing a big step forward for Amaranthe musically – where ‘Amaranthe’ and ‘The Nexus’ were closely connected, this new album is bolder and more different… but, of course, with the trademark Amaranthesound throughout! See you all on tour this spring with our last ‘Invincible’ shows – and expect blown minds in 2014!”
