TURISAS – confirmed for Paganfest 2015

Finnish Battle Metal warriors and convicted road dogs TURISAS are already eager to dust off their gear and join the 7th edition of Paganfest. Since they don’t really enjoy resting they are already busy working on a new stage show – apart from shifting into writing mode for an upcoming album.

Mathias Nygard on the tour as well as what is currently going on in camp TURISAS:

“After a year of touring on the latest album ‘Turisas2013”, things have finally quieted down for us to move into the creative process again and start developing the concept for a new album.

It’s all still in a very early embryonic state and not a single note has been written yet, but for us albums tend to start with themes rather than music. I also have the feeling that this is going to be a massive project and we’ve decided to take all the time we need to make it right. 

As things are bound to get intense, we’re happy to have our first escape penciled in in our calendars for March 2015. Co-headlining Paganfest with our good friends Wintersun is guaranteed to be a blast, but also a package of top-notch artistic value. We are planning to do a fully revisited show with songs that have not been played lately and also some surprises here and there, so do not miss this tour! 

Now it’s back to the drawing board for me; we’ll keep you posted once we have something more concrete to present, so make sure to follow our Facebook and Twitter for updates. See you in March!”

Turisas on Jukka Salon ohjaamalla ”Ten More Miles” -videolla ehdolla Oulun Musiikkivideofestivaalien Kansanpumpeli-palkintosarjassa. Biisi löytyy yhtyeen viime vuonna julkaistulta ”Turisas2013” -albumilta ja videolla koko kylä saa kyytiä laulaja Mathias Nygårdin luotsaaman soturijoukon pieksemänä – miekat heiluvat ja veri roiskuu! Katso video

Videota voi äänestää voittoon äänestysnumerolla 27 lauantaihin 30.8. klo 14 saakka osoitteessa:

Kaikki äänestäjät saavat Soundi-lehden syyskuun numeron, joka ilmestyy 17.9.2014. Lisäksi kaikkien äänestäneiden kesken arvotaan kolme Soundin vuosikertaa ja Oulun Musiikkivideofestivaalien tuotteita.

Vuonna 1997 perustettu folk-metal -yhtye Turisas on noussut yhdeksi kotimaisen musiikin vientiairueeksi. Euroopan lisäksi komppania on tehnyt useita kiertueita Yhdysvalloissa, Väli- ja Etelä-Amerikassa, Australiassa, Kiinassa ja Japanissa.

Vuonna 2012 Japanin suosituimpiin lukeutuva TV-ohjelma teki yhtyeestä jutun, jonka myötä Turisas nousi japanilaisen Twitterin suosituimpien aiheiden joukkoon. Kaikki yhtyeen levyt nousivat myös muun muassa verkkokauppa Amazonin listalle, ja 2011 julkaistu “Stand Up And Fight” kiipesi rock-levyjen ykkössijalle.

Seuraavan kerran yhtye nähdään kotimaisella lavalla Radio Rock -risteilyllä 13.9.2014.
