EPICA frontwoman Simone Simons also released a statement, saying: “Woohoow, this fall we’re releasing our 7th studio album and the band has exciting times coming up! A new album means a new EPICA chapter and obviously a new world tour. Early 2017 we’ll join forces with our German friends in POWERWOLF and together we’ll storm stages allover Europe. If you want to hear our brand new songs come to live, if you want to see our brand new visuals and if you simply want to have a good time with us, we expect you on our biggest tour to date! I really can’t wait to be back on the road again and to see the music, the energy and our lovely fans become one. Until then!”
