This time around we wanted to give you a show from our home country Finland. The main show was filmed at the Teatria club in Oulu, Finland, last April. It showcases Sonata Arctica towards the end of ‘The Days Of Grays’ world tour, which started back in 2009. We played a total of over 180 shows in almost 40 countries during the tour. This will be a two-DVD release with lots of bonuses. We’ll have tour documentaries, making-ofs as well as music videos and bonus songs from our very own Sonata Arctica Open Air festival, held in our hometown Kemi in August 2009. Whether you missed us or checked us out during this world tour, this DVD will be the complete guide to what we’ve been up to these past two years. I’m sure you all will enjoy watching this DVD as much as we’ve enjoyed making it. The Days Of Grays world tour has been absolutely fantastic and I’m very happy that we’ve managed to capture all the ups and downs on film. You’ll know what I’m talking about when we get this monster package out!”

SONATA ARCTICA On Forthcoming Album – “It Would Be Nice To Explore The Lighter Side”

July 3rd, 2011

In a recent chat at Sonisphere Helsinki with RockAAA.com, Finland’s SONATA ARCTICA revealed plans to express their lighter side in their forthcoming new album after claiming they have had enough of showcasing their dark side. Frontman Tony Kakko commented:

“Every album is a surprise and it’s too early to say too much. It won’t actually be darker. Pretty much vice-versa. We’ve gone quite deep down that road, the dark side, so I think it would be nice to explore the lighter side and smile for a reason.”

More details coming soon.

As previously reported, Sonata Arctica have been confirmed to play the Satama Open Air 2011 on August 6th, which takes place in Kemi, Finland. Go to this location for event information.

Their summer festival schedule is now as follows:

July
7 – Getaway Rock – Gävle, Sweden
15 – Kavarna Rock Fest – Kavarna, Bulgaria
16 – Bang Your Head – Balingen, Germany

SONATA ARCTICA, Labyrinth, Triosphere @ O2 Islington Academy, London

April 21st, 2011

SONATA ARCTICA, Labyrinth, Triosphere

@ O2 Islington Academy, London

25th March 2011

Review: Rhiannon Marley

There was already a large crowd outside eagerly queuing for tonight’s gig when we arrived, with the doors opening exceptionally early for a gig, I was surprised to see the venue packed so early in the evening! With fans blocking the stairways inside desperately trying to get to the merchandise section, this was not the best place to have it, but it didn’t take long until we were inside!

SONATA ARCTICA INTERVIEW @ O2 Islington Academy, London

April 21st, 2011

SONATA ARCTICA

Interview with bassist Marko Paasikoski and guitarist Elias Viljanen

@ O2 Islington Academy, London

25th March 2011

Reviewer: Rhiannon Marley

Photos: Altercarnated Photography

Of all the musicians they could take out for a drink one night, Sonata Arctica would pick Britney Spears! Well actually, that’s an exaggeration; their bassist, Marko Paasikoski, is just hard pushed for an answer. Let’s miss the joke for a second, and put on a deadpan face. There’s something unsavoury about a bunch of noisy Nordic Thunder-Gods choosing squeaky-clean-turned-wild-child bubblegum princess Spears for a question about a musician. I feel I should do something about this, and suggest that it’d be all right to take her out – if you closed her mouth, that is!

Ahola (TERÄSBETONI, NORTHERN KINGS)  JP Leppäluoto (CHARON, HARMAJA, NORTHERN KINGS) Ari Koivunen (AMORAL, solo)Tony Kakko (SONATA ARCTICA,  NORTHERN KINGS) Marco Hietala (NIGHTWISH, TAROT, NORTHERN KINGS, SAPATTIVUOSI)Antony Parviainen (MACHINE MEN)Ilja Jalkanen (Ex-KIUAS)Tommi “Tuple” Salmela (TAROT)

SONATA ARCTICA LAUNCHES SONATATELEVISION YOUTUBE CHANNEL

November 16th, 2010
SONATA ARCTICA LAUNCHES SONATATELEVISION CHANNEL

SONATA ARCTICA LAUNCHES SONATATELEVISION CHANNEL

Ever wondered what it would be like to be on tour?

All the ups and downs, drinks and burgers from SONATA ARCTICA’s South American Tour of will now be brought to you absolutely free via SONATA ARCTICA TELEVISION.

Join the band as they travel through South America, starting from Finland on October 14th and all the way through their adventures until they get back home on November 1st.  Meet characters such as Tero the “guitar tech, flight sock 1st timer, battery specialist, lingual sausage man,” learn new terminology such as “shit early,” and witness a public apology to the Mexican Government.

Season 1, Episode 1 airs November 15th 2010.  New episode airs every Monday, as long as the band has material.

SONATA ARCTICA’s lead vocalist Tony Kakko shares the background on the band’s dedicated YouTube channel:

“The idea for this channel came about when I caught myself shooting a lot of video with my mobile phone on this latest Latin-American tour. As there was a lot of time to kill on the hotel rooms and airports, I figured trying to edit these bits and see what I can come up with. At least it might be something our families might enjoy to watch. I have to admit I am way lazy when it comes to compiling all the thousand of photos I´ve taken on tours and showing them, explaining where I´m at, what´s that and who or what are these… half the time I CAN’T EVEN REMEMBER!  So obviously the other function would be to serve as my ‘spare memory’ for the years to come.  Anyhow, the band and crew seemed to approve and enjoyed the humor, so I just kept on bugging them all with my ‘camera.’  As a result I now have [material] for 6 to 8 15minute episodes: The first season of SONATA’s television series of our great adventures all over the world.

“The quality is what it is, as my equipment is what it is, and my skills in editing are what they are. None of it is very professional, but besides the point, I think that: We want to offer you all, including our families, friends and relatives, a glimpse of what the life on the road is.  Everyone is welcome to see what happens on stage, as a member of the audience… but the behind-the-scenes world, it´s something else. I sure wish I could have my personal fast forward-button sometimes (something you will see on this documentary)… Waiting in many forms, but also some precious, glorious moments you would happily slow down and watch frame by frame, again and again and again.  We travel the world, see and visit places and often wish we could share it all with our loved ones. Well, this is one way of doing just that.  In a goofy kinda way.  And now we want to give you all the same opportunity.

“Hope you enjoy!  Channel is open.”
