EDGUY Working On Next Studio Album

Source: Edguy's Official Site

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

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....
Jaco died for our sins so that modern bass players could be free to play more and be heard.
