On September 6th, Finnish melodic metal titans SONATA ARCTICA will release their tenth studio album, called »Talviyö« (which means »Winter Night«), including eleven new tracks. Today, the band proudly announce their “The Raven Still Flies Over Europe” tour, that is going to kick off on November 11th in Stockholm. On the tour, SONATA ARCTICA will be accompanied by EDGE OF PARADISE and TEMPLE BALLS.

“After working our asses off since last summer with our new album, we finally got it done and now is the time to go back out on the road with some exciting new material and new shenanigans and what have you. Last spring we had a really amazing time touring in Europe with the acoustic stuff and I’m sure it will be just as fun to come back once again and make some new memories together. We got a couple of killer support bands with us so there’s definitely some great nights ahead for all of us”, comments keyboard player Henrik “Henkka” Klingenberg.

The pre-order for tickets will start on July 11th on Eventim and on all other ticket seller pages on July 13th.

SONATA ARCTICA recently released their first single called ‘A Little Less Understanding’, along with a lyric video. Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiM94N3FnQA

“The song is lyrically somewhat a follow up for ”I Have A Right” and talks about the difficulty of making the right choices with the upbringing of a new human being”, explains Tony Kakko.
