Turisas will be touring in support of their new forthcoming album “Turisas2013”, for which the band has just unveiled the album artwork (please see the picture below for what it looks like).
When asked about Turisas2013, the band’s charismatic singer Mathias Nygård (aka Warlord) gave an insight as to what listeners can expect from the new Turisas album:
“When it comes to the production it’s just the opposite of the polished and massive ‘Stand Up And Fight’. It’s raw and dry and in your face, but still maintaining that TURISAS-largeness. People attest us that we are a great live band and we wanted the album to be based more around that than orchestral massiveness. It’s our most varied record to date and even if some of the songs sound very different, I think the common thread is that every single one has a lot of energy to it.”
Turisas2013 is being released through Century Media Records will land on shelves and Mp3 online stores on the following dates:
August 21st – Finland
August 26th – Mainland Europe
September 2nd – UK
September 3rd – North America
