AVANTASIA has announced that their new album, Ghostlights, will be released in January. The release will be followed by the Ghostlights World Tour 2016 that will kick off in March. The first guest vocalist has now been revealed.

AVANTASIA mastermind Tobias Sammett commented:

"Hey Newsletter subscriber, Avantasian and friend of great music! ;) You may have heard about it, but I wanna inform you personally: Ghostlights will feature some of the greatest vocalists of all time, and now I can reveal the first name. To most AVANTASIA fans he is an old acquaintance: The Striking Viking, Mr. Jorn Lande. We have just finished the studio session with Jorn, and he sounds amazing. The whole material sounds really enchanting, very melodic, very powerful, very emotional. And the best news is: Jorn is also going to join us for the Ghostlights World Tour. We’ll play 3 hours every night, there’ll be various amazing vocalists sharing the stage, and Jorn will be one of them.

I can’t wait to unleash the album and hit the road, and our stage manager is discussing the stage production with several companies right now. We have plans! :) Of course, the focus has to be on the albums, the songs, and the singers - no doubt! We’ll keep you posted. Ah, and before I forget: You know I have my own radio show, don’t you? Tobias Sammet Rockshow at RadioBob. You can listen online at RadioBob.deas well. I’m on the air every Wednesday, from 9PM CET to midnight. Three hours of classic rock and metal. Next Wednesday I think I may announce another guest vocalist on my show. So… ok, now back to the studio. We’ll speak, have a great day, and talk to you soon, Tobi."
