AVANTASIA TO TAKE PART IN THE PRELIMINARY ROUND OF THE ESC
“Hey folks, quite busy these days. New album in the pipeline, the slave drivers in my record company have kept me talking for months, something like 400 interviews, where's Amnesty International when you REALLY need them?! Anyway, video's shot, most interviews done, and early March, we'll set off on the »Ghostlights« world tour. As you know, Madrid and Hamburg are sold out, also the second Madrid show is on its way. More dates like London, Moscow and Sao Paulo as well. Have I told you that you rock big time? And you know what? We have just been confirmed to headline Tuska Open Air in Finland… Which means there'll be a second show in Scandinavia this time. And there'll also be some more American dates to be announced soon! Check out the tour section at avantasia.net to get info and tickets… Anyway, as if that all wasn't enough we've been asked by our record label if we'd be willing to take part in the German preliminary round for the Eurovision Song Contest. My mother's gonna be proud. Or not. We'll see… Anyway, it seemed like a quite unusual idea to compete with anyone in music, to play music AGAINST someone… like in Jazz music! "Everyone against everyone," as my Avantasia pal Ronnie Atkins has put it (after watching a Free Jazz show in Bremen…) ;-) However: WHO AM I to get in the way of a great promotional opportunity?! Three minutes to show millions that something like us exists? GIMME THAT STAGE! B-)

So, in case you turn on your TV on the 25th of February and you virtually bump into bunch of people that look like AVANTASIA, that's maybe because it IS AVANTASIA! Ha!

Cheerz and talk to you soon, T“

WATCH "MYSTERY OF A BLOOD RED ROSE" NOW!

Tomorrow, Dec 11th the new AVANTASIA single "MYSTERY OF A BLOOD RED ROSE" will be available for download. Now you can watch the lyric video here:

About the song itself Tobias Sammet says: "In my humble opinion it is the perfect overture to the seventy-minute journey which the full album is going to be. MYSTERY OF A BLOOD RED ROSE may be a rather short composition compared to most other Avantasia songs, yet I wanted to embellish and amplify it with flamboyance and all Avantasia trademarks. I wanted to make it a detailed piece of fantasy art, but at the same time it was a big challenge to make that painting look inherently consistant if you view it from the distance. The layered choirs took us forever to record and yet nothing distracts from the main theme and flow of the song. Everytime you give it a listen you will discover something else going on. I have a feeling that I have never managed to create such an epic and dreamy atmosphere in just four minutes. I gotta admit, I am slightly proud of it!"

NEW ALBUM GHOSTLIGHTS - DETAILS REVEALED!
Click here to see the several editions! On January 29th the new AVANTASIA album GHOSTLIGHTS will be released. The regular edition contains 12 songs and a running time of 70 minutes. The limited 2-CD edition contains one more studio track and a full Live-album as a bonus.

Tobias: "I was asked for a bonus to give it to the people who pre-order the album right away. So I thought why not produce a full live album? The tracks are from Czech Republic '13 and Wacken 2014, one from Wacken 2008 because I wanted Jorn on the album as well, he'll join the tour, and so… The live disc has got an amazing powerful sound, a great mix and mastering and is so much more than just a bonus bootleg. We could have released it as a live album of its own, but I wanted to give "Ghostlights" buyers more bang for the buck. For collectors there is also a Super deluxe 68 pages edition,around 100 great photos taken on the last tour, it's huge and contains a 3rd CD with instrumental versions of Ghostlights. I was involved in the design process and it is exactly the item I would wanna have as a fan! Something real, something to touch and look at! And of course you just need that one item if you wanna own everything, so no multiple items to compliment each other...! :) Unfortunately you can't put it under the Christmas tree, but there are still a few tickets for some shows of the tour available I heard… *hint*… Cheers, Tobi"
