Edguy are currently preparing to hit the studio to work on the successor of their recent album "Rocket Ride".

Tobias: "People think that we are quite fast but that's not the truth. I completed the Avantasia album last autumn, the Avantasia songwriting itself was completed even way back in 2006. All the new ideas I've had since then could be taken for Edguy. In fact, this is a long time to refresh your creativity and gather new stuff. The material sounds very fresh, it embraces all the different trademarks of Edguy, I think it is a logical continuation of Rocket Ride and Hellfire Club. Maybe it doesn't come across as goofy as Rocket Ride, but I am sure if we have fun in the studio we'll have enough possibilities to ruin the day for notoriously bitter people, haha. Yet it's more bombastic and heavier, not too fast cause I really don't like pure Speed Metal that much anymore. I like Lavatory Love Machine, The Piper Never Dies, Mandrake and Sacrifice. There's three fast tracks, but they are all good, not 'just fast'! We'll enter the studio next week and work whenever producer Sascha Paeth and me come back from the Avantasia weekends."

Furthermore Edguy will be touring the USA and Canada as special guest of Kamelot in October. Three more headline dates have been added. Check the tour section for details. If you want to see Tobias Sammet's Avantasia project on stage this summer, check his website www.tobiassammet.com.

The world will be better with another Edguy album. The world will be a much better if Edguy makes their next release a real power metal album.... :ecw:

I think most Edguy fans would.

Rocket Ride was dissapointing. It wasn't the style change I minded as mmuch as the overpresence of joking in the music. I loved it when Edguy did their one goofy song an album and then just kept things straight the rest of them, but on Rocket Ride they started to just mix the two - to the point were you had great songs musically met with horrible goofy lyrics. It just got annoying.
Personally I'd really like to see them put out something in the vein of Mandrake or Hellfire Club, but as long as they maintain quality and knock of the goofy shit, I'll be happy.
