Jiihaa, we just got done with all the little bells and whistles and the mixing is done ! As for now we still have some work to do to prepare for the shows etc but in a week or so we can start enjoying the christmas holiday. I’ll be back posting stuff from the mastering which will be in early January.
More info, like the album title, cover, videos & singles and all that will be coming out soon,piece by piece until the album will finally see the light of day in March 2014. As usual, we’re very pleased with the results and I’m sure you’ll be too. In only a little over 6 weeks we’ll be out playing our 15th anniversary shows and you’ll get to hear at least one of the new songs as well as some stuff that we’ve never played live before along with our ”hits”, we’ll of course will also bring back some songs that we haven’t played for awhile now…… I’m really pumped about the setlist ;-)
All the best, enjoy your holiday season and we’ll be back in January unless something comes up.
Good morning here in Argentina! Turns out yesterday I was in the car listening to the radio when suddenly starts playing "I can't dance" and I remembered that you had recorded a cover of this song ... someday will see the light haha?VastaaPoista
PS: I'm glad you're excited about the setlist, we're also excited and expectant.
Still trying to figure out where to put the I can't dance cover, but I hope it will see the light of day at some point.Poista
Hyvää Joulua kaikille :)VastaaPoista
I can't believe I'm gonna see you so soon, omg. And if YOU are pumped for the setlist....well, I have nothing to worry about, it'll be great for sure. :D
Looking forward to hearing stuff :)VastaaPoista

Reading this saved my really crappy birthday, so thanks for that. Now all we can do is wait for January and then March (okay, that's all we've been doing so far, you've done all the work here ;) ) But you guys have a merry and relaxing christmas with your families, you deserve it!VastaaPoista
Wow I'm so anxious and shocked for your fast work, I hope you can rest and come back with batteries charged. I wish all of you the best, I'll see you in march 22 Argentina. Cheers!!VastaaPoista
Really looking forward to this album. Remember to drink lots of egg nog over Christmas; it's the secret to surviving the next 12 months! ;-)VastaaPoista
Exciting news! I really REALLY hope there will be some good recordings of these shows...VastaaPoista
Have a good holiday!
Tulkaa Ouluunkin! :)VastaaPoista
I was so glad when I heard about the 15th anniversary shows as I still would be in Finland at that time, but then I found out that you don't come to Oulu :(
I guess there is not much chance that this would change, but still, please come to Oulu too!
Well, the dates for the Finnish part of the 15th anniversary tour are final so unfortunately no Oulu this time.Poista
thanks for coming in Italy :DDDDD I'll be there for sure in April ;) see you there! :)VastaaPoista
you've added today a list "Tour through Europe in April/May 2014" in Facebook and I would like to ask : is there any option to add more countries into tour ? Especially I would like to recommend Poland - please, visit us one more time .
We might add something but at the moment those are the dates that we will play on the European Tour 2014Poista
Terveiset Tonylle ja muillekin! Sonata Arctica on best!VastaaPoista
I'm so exited about the whole Sonataland stuff right now. I wonder what did you do with the setlist... I was seeing how many times some tracks got suggested in that previous thread, and I wonder if you'll end up playing some of those. "New songs" "stuff we haven't played in a while" oh man I'm sooo exited!!VastaaPoista
Love from México! See you in March!
I remember somewhere you said there'd be a teaser in December (at least I thought you did). Is that statement still true, or should I cry myself to sleep tonight?VastaaPoista
I don't remember that, however my memory sucks, the plan was to get the album name and the cover out before christmas... I hope it's work out...and then the first single in January...Poista
Hey Henkka, give us a hint as to what older songs you'll be debuting. At least one please! I need to kill the pressure of waiting!VastaaPoista
There will be a never before played bonus track...if nothing totally unexpected happends...Poista
Will the setlist be exactly the same in every show, or will there be some changes between shows?VastaaPoista
Haven't talked about that yet, we'll decide on that in January when we have the band rehersals for the tour.Poista
Please decide, that there could be some changes, for those of us who will come to more than one show :)Poista
Considering poor Pasi already has to learn 2,5 to 3 hours worth of songs from scratch, I don't think they're gonna change THAT much. Sure, Pasi is good, but....Poista
Kehun:Winterheart's Guild-albumia ja Tonyn lauluääntä.VastaaPoista
Moitin:keikkapaikkoja(voiko järjestää keikan lappeenrantaan?)
P.s: Kuinka pitkiä olette? :)
Kyllähän Lappeenrannassa voisi soitella, sieltä vaan ei ole tarjottu vielä keikkaa...ja tämän rundin osalta ei enää mahdu/ehdi. Pitkiä ? Ihan soppelin mittaisia ;-)Poista
Can't wait to see you again in Bogotá :-)VastaaPoista
Who will do the artwork for the new album? It will be so crazy and confusing as SGHN? Hopefully do something like Silence or TDOG are my favoriteVastaaPoista
PS: Any hints album name?
ToxicAngel is doing the artwork, and the drafts I've seen doesn't look crazy or confusing so no worries ! I can't give you any hint of the name, the name should be released in a few days ;-)Poista
Haha thanks I'll wait then! And thank you very much for taking the time to respond! Happy Christmas and New Year to you, your family and all the guys in the band.Poista
I bet this album's title won't be half as complex/confusing as SGHN..VastaaPoista
that one must have given you so much hassle with all the questions about its meaning.. Lol ;) Enjoy your holidays! :)
Cheers Henkka!! I hope this album and see you in ChileVastaaPoista
oh, i missed a fangirling oppurtunity. didn't realize before that you had posted a link to a dj wax audio youtube video on the blog before :). really like 'em, now i'm off on a mashups kick..VastaaPoista
The last comment I make in this post. For the anniversary tour, how about playing "The ruins of my life" and you play "Champagn bath" eeee eeee deal with it haha!VastaaPoista
