Sonata Arctica reveal acoustic album + European/UK tour

Finnish melodic metal greats Sonata Arctica have revealed their first acoustic album, ‘Acoustic Adventures – Volume One,’ which is scheduled to be released in October 2021 through Nuclear Blast Tonträger Produktions- und Vertriebs GmbH. The aforementioned effort will be the first part, with a second acoustic record to be released in 2022.

This acoustic form of SONATA ARCTICA has been slowly brewing for years“, says vocalist Tony Kakko. “The first manifestation of it, besides the few acoustic versions of songs released throughout the years, was the ‘Acoustic Adventures Tour’ in 2019, which proved to be a great success, sparking an idea to get these songs also recorded and out on an album. Or two albums, at least for starters. Our songs have always been based on beautiful melodies, which makes it very easy to transform and rearrange them perfectly into the acoustic form as well. I should mention that many of the songs work so well dressed in acoustic garments.

Kakko adds, “I hope you love these albums as much as we do. There are many, many songs we had to leave out of these ”Volume One” and ”Volume Two” albums, so nothing would please me more than adding few more volumes in the future. Looking forward to seeing you on tour again as soon as possible!

Regarding touring, Sonata Arctica will embark on their ‘Acoustic Adventures MMXXI’ European tour later this year. “It’s been a while since SONATA ARCTICA toured Europe, the last time being in 2019,” states a press release. “To promote their “Acoustic Adventures – Volume One” release, the band will embark on a journey through 17 European countries! Support will be provided by Swedish hopefuls ELEINE, who will also be presenting an acoustic set.

Speaking on the upcoming run, keyboardist Henrik “Henkka” Klingenberg says, “Since our Talviyö World Tour is more or less over, it’s time to look ahead for the next challenge and since we’ve had so much fun with the acoustic stuff we decided to make an album as well, and of course we will hit the road immediately after that to celebrate the release of it. As of now, we have managed to set up an extensive European Tour and we’re really looking forward to getting out there and play some music for all of you.
