||Midnattsol has released the following band statement:
"Many of you have been wondering lately when our third album will be released. Fortunately we are now happy to announce that the release date of The Metamorphosis Melody is the 25th of March 2011. In addition to 11 brand new songs with almost an hour playtime, we have made a Limited Edition for you as well, this time with both a Bonus DVD and a Bonus track, sung by Daniel Droste (Ahab). The exact content of the DVD and the titles of the new songs will be revealed in our next news. You can already preorder the Limited Edtion - and the Normal Edition on Amazon.de.
We have some good news regarding live activities as well: Midnattsol is going to play a great deal live in 2011; you can watch us on concerts, festivals and tours. We can't wait to show you the new songs and party with you. Watch out for more information!
But unfortunately there is also some bad news for you: our guitarist Daniel Droste has recently left the band due to the fact that he wanted to concentrate on his band Ahab. We want to thank Daniel from the bottom of our heart for all the awesome and funny moments together with him in the rehearsal room, studio, tour bus and of course on stage and wish him all the best for the future, both regarding his musical career and private life.
In order to be a complete band again, we are now in search of a new guitarist. We will keep you informed!"
