Here come new details about the upcoming Edguy release. After revealing the album title and release date, the band is now unveiling the cover artwork for Space Police - Defenders Of The Crown, due to be released on April 18th via Nuclear Blast Records. You can take a look at it below and tell us what you think about it.

The official statement from the band: "On April 18th Edguy's 10th studio album Space Police - Defenders Of The Crown will hit the stores worldwide, followed by a world tour starting in September. Last Saturday several journalists had the chance to listen to an unmastered version of the new album and the reaction was overwhelming."

The kick off date for the European Space Police Tour is on September 19th. In Hamburg, Germany, Edguy will headline the Hamburg Metal Dayz. The show will mark the start of the band's first full-fledged headlining European tour after the Age Of The Joker Tour 2011. The Metal Dayz will be the band's only festival show in Germany, and further tour dates will be announced soon.

How high was everyone when this was approved? It's not exactly setting high expectations for the album when the artwork looks like the kind of thing you'd expect to see for a high school art project! And probably would have been done at the last minute by a lazy student, too!

The music better be really good to justify artwork like this.

That is just laughably bad.

Worst cover and album title ever

I think this is supposed to be tongue-in-cheek. Or maybe they're paying homage to some other artist known for producing similar work.

This reminds me of all the bad illustrations of 70's and 80's sci-fi. Terrible.

Totally not gay

Let's all remember that Rocket Ride had a similarly bad cover and was a pretty good album. None of Edguy's albums really have GREAT artwork. It's not something they are known for. I trust Toby to write quality songs. I think he's one of the top handful of composers in the genre.

My thoughts exactly. Edguy is a band of goofballs, they don't take things a seriously as the rest of you macho metal heads. It's a fun, comic book style album cover in my opinion.

That is all I have to say.

Sometimes having a really low expectation is a good thing. It means if anything about it is good will be much better received than not having high expectations met.

That's my philosophy of life

This is AN UGLY COVER! Deserves to be on the list of ugliest covers of all time, lol.

Let's cross the fingers for the music...
Anyway i don't know if this ulgy thing would fit in my discography...:D

Mandrake was a solid power metal album. Avantasia had a few nice sing-a-long hits. And then everything went to hell.
