Eluveitie working on new album ‘Evocation II’

Folk metal heroes ELUVEITIE have announced a brand new record!

It had been rumoured for some time but now the band have confirmed they are working on the next chapter of their acoustic-concept, Evocation. The band plan to start recording at the end of this year and aim to release the record next spring! Speaking about the upcoming album, Chrigel Glanzmann says, “We’re looking forward to Evocation! The concept of the album sticks in our head already for years and it has matured a lot. Our second acoustic-album will continue the tradition of the first one but it will be even more rough, folk and mystic! It will be the Celtic mythology in its pure culture, formed into music!” Guitarist Rafael Salzmann adds, “Exactly! We’re really motivated and creative as well. Evocation II will become definitely a folk-album filed in details!”

Alongside the announcement for the upcoming album, the band has also announced their first acoustic Swiss tour. Throughout this tour, the band will perform tasters of what fans can expect from the upcoming album in the form of brand new tracks. Tour dates are as follows:
