It’s time to step into the cinematic, epic and emotionally dynamic world of “HAVEN“. The new album features all the signature elements of KAMELOT but the band steps out to add new and modern elements along with bringing some amazing emotions that harken to the band’s earlier days. KAMELOT’s artsy music is chock full of symbolism relating to how the band feels about the world and the current state of civilization.
“The HAVEN album has an undertone of a world going insane. There is a grey cloud that is forming over our world. We are here to find that silver lining with an album that is both dark and melancholy yet uplifting and giving the listener a HAVEN in a world gone mad. We are really proud of the song elements and diversity on HAVEN” adds guitarist Thomas Youngblood. “The songs run the gambit of dark and melancholy to uplifting and melodic elements.” states vocalist Tommy Karevik. Check out a preview of the album below.
“Haven has an aggressive edge to it that is the representation of the band as The Revolutionary Change in the storyline,” Kamelot’s Oliver Palotai tells us.
Produced by acclaimed music producer Sascha Paeth and mastered by Jacob Hansen, “HAVEN” is a massive album that is sure to please critics and fans alike. Additional guests include Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Troy Donockley (Nightwish) and Charlotte Wessels (Delain). The breath-taking cover and artwork was created by Stefan Heilemann and additional art/layout was done by Gustavo Sazes.
Following the release of “HAVEN“, Kamelot will embarque on a massive WORLD TOUR, starting with North America in April/May 2015 followed by European shows in the Summer 2015 and with The Haven European Tour in September/October 2015 the band will return to Europe for their biggest headliner tour to date.
