Sonata Arctica are currently hard at work to finalize the recordings of their new album that will follow Stones Grow Her Name and have already confirmed another upcoming tour through Europe in April/May 2014. Fear not because it's not just Germany. Their upcoming 8th studio album is expected to be released in March 2014. Check out the tour dates below.

Keyboardist Henkka left the following message: "Hello out there. It's been a while since we last toured Europe, so I'm very happy that we can announce our first tour with our new album. Since the album will be out in March 2014, we don't want to waste any time but will head out for a full European Tour. Our tour will start in Eindhoven, NL on April 10th, 2014. The whole band is really looking forward to play some new songs for you and introduce our new bass player, Pasi, for all our fans. He's a monster live, you'll see.

Not only Germany, but it's the regular "European" tour dates.

Yes, but still, it's not just Germany, which is always positive OKAY

It may not be just Germany, but of course, there's no UK date. But for once, I'LL ACTUALLY BE IN GERMANY WHEN THIS HAPPENS

...wait, new album before the tour dates? Sweet. As one of those deluded fans who still cares about them post-Unia, I'll check it out and get tickets for this.

I enjoy all of Sonata Arctica's discography, including Stones Grow Her Name. With that said... I am growing a little weary of all the experimentation and wouldn't mind a return to the sound of Reckoning Night. Sonata Arctica is no longer a power metal band, I realize and accept that. But to me, RN demonstrated the perfect balance between their older and newer sound. Tony himself said the next album will be a bit more like their older ones, so I'm hoping for something along the lines of Reckoning Night.

When did he say that? That sounds amazing. And I'm with you all the way.

Apparently I'm a deluded fan as well.

He said in a more recent video interview that too many fans complained that Stones had too many mid tempo songs on it, so that he would try to put more speedy tracks on the next album.
