Sonata Arctica - Live Album Due In January, European Tour Postponed

Sonata Arctica announce the new release date of their first acoustic album, Acoustic Adventures - Volume One, on January 21st, 2022. The second part follows in October, 2022. Also the panned acoustic tour had to be postponed into next year (rescheduled dates available below).

"Despite of the circumstances slowly getting better, we will unfortunately have to postpone our 'Acoustic Adventures European Tour' that was supposed to happen this fall. This is not a light decision by any means but right now we cannot go forward with the tour as planned. However we will be back in 2022, postponed doesn't mean canceled. Our Acoustic Adventures Vol. One album will also be released a few months later than orginally planned but rest assured, it will be worth the wait. We're really looking forward to getting out there again and play for you all, rather sooner than later. Meanwhile, take care", says keyboard player Henrik "Henkka" Klingenberg.

"This acoustic form of Sonata Arctica has been slowly brewing for years", comments vocalist Tony Kakko and explains: "The first manifestation of it, besides the few acoustic versions of songs released throughout the years, was the 'Acoustic Adventures Tour' in 2019, which proved to be a great success, sparking an idea to get these songs also recorded and out on an album. Or two albums, at least for starters. Our songs have always been based on beautiful melodies, which makes it very easy to transform and rearrange them perfectly into the acoustic form as well. I should mention that many of the songs work so well dressed in acoustic garments."
