Amorphis — Amorphis announce new album title and release date
Amorphis

The Finnish metallers Amorphis will release their new album "Under The Red Cloud" on September 4 via Nuclear Blast. Cover artwork was created by the French artist Valnoir Mortasonge.

The frontman and guitarist Esa Holopainen comments: "Valnoir is well known from his works for Laibach, Paradise Lost, Watain, Behemoth and many more. It was a great pleasure to work with him as he catched the lyrical topics really well. Colors and details describe the music perfectly."

"Under The Red Cloud" is produced by Jens Bogren who did amazing job with the album. There's a lot's of elements in the songs but every note and element is in perfect harmony so that the result is fucking heavy and melodic. All I can say is that "Under The Red Cloud" will be in my personal Top 3 Amorphis albums that we've ever done."

Amorphis gives several concerts during European summer festivals to celebrate album "Tales From The Thousand Lakes" 20th anniversary. In September, the band will go on tour in support of their upcoming "Under The Red Cloud" release. Amorphis will also give some shows with Nightwish and Arch Enemy.
