Here’s an update from MOONSPELL’s lead vocalist, Fernando Ribeiro:
“Dear All: Some updates to keep you au pair with what is happening on the always troubled lunar dimensions:
Recording: MOONSPELL will be recording the successor of Darkness and Hope between the 23rd of March and the 12th of April. This birth will take place at the rightly famed Finnvox Studios, Hell-sinki, Suomi, under the attentive eye of Mr. Hiili Hiilesmaa (always a tough name to write down). A possible diary is planned to appear on this site of ours to account all the strange events that will take place. There is still not a release date confirmed.
Live shows: In the meanwhile, MOONSPELL started to confirm appearances for the upcoming Festival Season. So far the dates fully confirmed are:
4-6 July: With Full Force Festival
12 July: Arvika Festival, Sweden
More dates to be confirmed.
Sérgio C.: We inform that MOONSPELL and their long time bass player Sérgio [Crestana] have parted ways and put a term on their collaboration. The departure was amicable. MOONSPELL is working on finding a substitute for the recording sessions and will enlist someone to assure their live compromises. In the meanwhile the recordings will be assured by Niclas Etelavouri the current bass player of long time friends AMORPHIS.”
