The label showed great interest in our music, which is why we're convinced that this is going to be a fruitful cooperation. Bastardized will release our long-announced third record, from which you can hear some first music soon, so stay tuned! We're looking forward to a successful time together."
Switzerland's folk rock rising stars Cellar Darling are due to embark on their debut UK show supporting Delain at London's Koko on 1st November. The band commented:
"We've been asked to get our behinds over to the UK pretty much from day one. So we are very pleased to announce London as one of the very first official tour dates following the release of our debut album! We can't wait to see you all at the Koko on the 1st of November. A big thank you to Delain for inviting us on their very special Danse Macabre Tour with Nightwish's Marco Hietala!
More dates are in the works, hopefully for the rest of the UK as well. Stay tuned!"

Finnish melodic deathsters Insomnium have announced a European tour for early 2017 to support their forthcoming release 'Winter’s Gate' - a concept album that is made of one epic 40 minute song, which they are going to play in its entirety on this tour!
Frontman Niilo Sevänen comments: ”We are very excited to get back on the road again! Last autumn a serious illness in my family forced us to make some drastic decisions and for example cancel one tour altogether. Since then things have progressed very well and steadily so everything looks a lot better at the moment. We’ve only made festivals and short trips this year but in 2017 we’ll be back on making longer tours all over the world.
The forthcoming Winter’s Gate album has been mixed by Dan Swanö and it sounds amazing. Playing this 40 minute monster song will be an interesting challenge in a live situation but we can’t wait to do this! This European tour in January will be a rare opportunity for our fans to hear the whole epic song live, so it will be a very special show every night.”
The new album will be released via Century Media Records on September 23rd, 2016. It is built around the short story 'Winter’s Gate' (Talven portti in Finnish) by vocalist & bassist Niilo Sevänen, which won awards and nominations in Finland back in 2007 and 2008. It’s a story about a group of Vikings who set out to find a fabled island west from Ireland, even though the winter is drawing near.
