After repeated requests from fans and concert promoters alike, Royal Hunt and their former lead singer DC Cooper mutually decided to reunite for a very few selected dates, in order to perform the entire Paradox (the band's first concept album from 1997) and several of "everybody's all-time favourite" songs from that period.
In a short update on the band's website, Royal Hunt have announced they signed a record deal with Italian label Scarlet Records for the European release of the new upcoming album, entitled X. An estimated release date is set for early June 2010.
Keyboard player André Andersen said the following about the new album: "This album came out of our love for the 70´s music (tagged as Classic Rock nowadays) - from Kansas, Genesis and ELP to Uriah Heep and Deep Purple - music which was/is very adventurous while just a tad naïve at the same time (as some might say). We all are notoriously resistant to categorize it in any way, form or shape, but (if hard pressed) would go as far as saying that it's definitely much more hard rock than metal and if by "progressive" you might mean some odd time signatures here and there as well as random key changes - sure, there're tons of them here... as well as really basic, simple stuff - so go figure."
Danish metallers Royal Hunt have issued the following update on their official website:
"Happy New Year, everyone!
Hope you like this new-and-improved look and functionality of our website. So - what do we have in store for you?
First of all: our new album is done! As this will be our tenth studio release we decided not to elaborate on its title too much, so here you go: Royal Hunt - X... and it will be out in 2010...
Secondly: we've been talking to various promoters in order to arrange some gigs to support our new release and it looks like there'll be some "live on stage" action in April/May 2010.
In general: it's hard to predict how things will shape out with the current state-of-affairs in our "beloved" music business (with piracy and illegal downloading playing the rapidly increasing, harmful part of it), but we'll definitively give this album a fair chance and work hard to make it successful; in case it won't work... well, then you'd have to make the next one yourselves.
