Korpiklaani release new single ‘FC Lahti’

KORPIKLAANI have released a brand new song!

The Finnish folk metal outfit have released a brand new song which supports the 20 year anniversary of their local football team FC Lahti. FC Lahti, play in finnish Veikkausliiga, the highest soccer league in Finland.

Listen to FC Lahti here:

Speaking about the track, Jonne Järvelä says, “when I was asked if KORPIKLAANI would want to support the local football team playing at the top level in Finland, my answer was definitely yes. My first idea on how to take this forward was the thing that is important to us as a band, to write a song, a new official anthem for FC Lahti, and here it is now. Lyrics are not just about football, but also about love for your home town without forgetting it’s history. I wish the fans of FC Lahti and everyone else too will like the song.”

Tomi Honkanen, the Managing director (President) of FC-Lahti adds, FC Lahti and KORPIKLAANI are two strong brands that generate strong emotions in Lahti and internationally.
At FC Lahti we highly value that KORPIKLAANI wears our colours and brings our great FC Lahti to the world. Lahti rocks!”
