KAMELOT Confirm AMARANTHE Vocalist For Upcoming North American Tour
KAMELOT have confirmed that Swedish vocalist Elize Ryd from AMARANTHE will be joining the band on the North American Tour. She will also be part of the VIP meet and greets. Ryd toured with Kamelot on their recent Summer Pandemonium Tour and the band’s European tour earlier this spring.
Amaranthe recently signed a deal with Spinefarm/Universal. They are set to being recording their debut album in October, spending two months until December, with Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, MERCENARY, NIGHTRAGE) of Hansen Studio in Ribe, Denmark. The as-of-yet untitled album is scheduled for a spring 2011 release.
Commented guitarist Olof Mörck: “Needless to say, we are very much looking forward to getting all the tracks on tape! There has been quite a stir and hype around Amaranthe lately, and it is funny to think that everything that people have heard so far are demos recorded in a bedroom – it is going to be fantastic to able to show people the true potential of our music, with a killer sound! This whole production is going to be HUGE and spending two months with Jacob Hansen recording the album will ensure that we will have a production second to none! Jacob Hansen is definitely one of the top names in today’s metal recording scene, and when we found out that he was available on quite short notice we where very enthused! Keep your eyes peeled when this baby is unleashed in early spring 2011!”
