The original is back! EDGUY frontman Tobias Sammet has returned to the studio to work on the new chapter of AVANTASIA. The sequel to the successful 2013 album The Mystery Of Time, which charted in 16 countries in Europe, Asia and America, including #2 in Germany, will be called Ghostlights and is scheduled to be released in early 2016. An EP/single is also planned to be released this autumn and in March 2016 a giant all-star ensemble will set off on the GHOSTLIGHTS WORLD TOUR.

AVANTASIA’s mastermind Tobias Sammet commented about the album:

"In the past months I've spent a lot of time in the studio, an odd recluse in the basement, secretly working obsessively on something that reads and feels and sounds like a new - very strong - chapter in the story of AVANTASIA. I must say AVANTASIA is a fantastic outlet for creativity, and it's truly inspiring to create a piece of music for so many great vocalists and instrumentalists.

The new material is very bombastic and dynamic, and even though it's extremely diverse, every minute of it sounds like AVANTASIA. I'm really proud of what we're creating right now. And as if that wasn't enough: I'm anxiously looking forward to hitting the road again. I didn't necessarily expect this to happen as in the past it has always been difficult to align the individual schedules of the guest stars, but things have worked out, and we're ready to make it happen one more time! We'll put on a big show, we're gonna play over three hours, and we'll take the fans to a magical world all its own - to AVANTASIA. The live setlist is going to embrace the entire history of AVANTASIA, from The Metal Opera to Ghostlights and of course everything in between!"

The world tour will kick off in Berlin on March 4th, 2016.
