Stratovarius are entering a studio in Helsinki, Finland this to commence recording their 12th album. Says the band in an update: "We are keeping you updated with blogs and podcasts and we try to set up the webcam for you by Tuesday (February 27th) so you can see us actually playing in the studio. Blogs and podcasts you will find at www.stratovarius.com. We don't know when this album "R....... R" will come out at this point, but sure thing is that not this year. Of course we will let you know when we know anything concrete. In the meantime Timo Kotipelto (vocals) and Timo Tolkki (guitar) will be quite busy so you won't get bored. See you in the studio hopefully!"
