Dutch outfit Within Temptation will be taking their newest album Hydra to North American for a string of tour dates later this year. The 12 dates will be part of the North American leg of their Hydra World Tour, which launched in Finland in February. Opening all shows will be metallers Amaranthe.
Good news for Amaranthe fans. The follow-up to The Nexus (winner of Best Industrial / Cyber / Electronic Metal Album on Metal Storm Awards 2013) is coming out this year already. The band has confirmed an autumn 2014 release date for their new as yet untitled studio album via Spinefarm Records.
Amaranthe have shared today their brand new video for the track "Invincible". The video was directed by Patric Ullaeus and shot on location in Hollywood, Las Vegas, the Nevada desert and the Grand Canyon, among other locations. The group says it's their most ambitious clip to date. Do you agree? Watch the video right here.
The Swedes Amaranthe are going through a line-up change. The band just announced that Andreas Solveström has chosen to step down as the growl vocalist in Amaranthe. His reasons are personal and the split is amicable and friendly, and not the result of any hard feelings. And since the band is not planning to slow down, they have welcomed a new member: Henrik Englund Wilhelmsson (Scarpoint), who filled in for Andy on their latest European and American tour.
"Burn With Me", the new video from Swedish melodic metallers Amaranthe has been premiered. The clip was directed by Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company. "Burn With Me" is the band's new single which was released yesterday and the iTunes version of the single will feature an exclusive acoustic version, previously only available in Japan. You can watch the video right now.

Kamelot are pleased to announce that Swedish female vocalist Elize Ryd (Amaranthe) will be joining the band again, this time on their European and South American tour dates.
Elize joins the band on this very special and unique tour that includes some special guests singers like Fabio Lione (Rhapsody Of Fire), Simone Simons (Epica) and many more.
Kamelot guitarist Thomas Youngblood adds: "I am very pleased to hear that Elize will be touring with us again, she toured with us for the entire year of 2010 and was amazing at every show!". When contacted by phone Elize stated: "I am very exited about going on tour with Kamelot, I had so much fun during the 2010 performances on all the great stages with this awesome band in front of all their amazing fans! It's a real honor to be able to do that once again!".
Amaranthe, the Swedish/Danish power metal/melodic death metal "super-group", are set to record their debut full-length album. In October, the band will enter Hansen Studio in Ribe, Denmark for two months with producer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Mercenary, Nightrage). The as-of-yet untitled album is scheduled for a spring 2011 release via Spinefarm Records.
Guitarist Olof Mörck commented: "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!"
