Kamelot will be releasing their new album Silverthorn October 30th in North America, October 26th in Germany and October 29th in the rest of Europe via Steamhammer/SPV. It will receive its Japanese release October 24th via King Records.
Today the band has unveiled the breathtaking album artwork for Silverthorn. The LP and limited edition will have one version of the art, while the standard version of Silverthorn will have a different but equally exquisite version of the artwork. The standard version is presented as an Ecolbook. The limited edition contains the Ecolbook, a bonus CD with nearly 60 minutes of music, a 44 page book and an exclusive poster. The double LP version is a gatefold on colored vinyl and includes the CD.
Guitarist Thomas Youngblood says of the artwork: "Artist Stefan Heilemann captured the true essence of the story and the main character. The booklet and 44 page book is packed with amazing images!"
Kamelot recently recently announced that Swedish vocalist Tommy Karevik, the frontman for SEVENTH WONDER, has been tapped as the band's new singer (replacing Roy Khan).
In conjunction with the album’s release, Kamelot will be embarking on a massive World Tour that will bring the band to nearly every continent on the planet.
