Amorphis guitarist Esa Holopainen has announced his solo band Silver Lake, which has signed to Nuclear Blast. Silver Lake will be led by Holopainen, but will consist of various other musicians. None of their identities have yet been revealed.
"As some of you might have noticed, I’ve been working on my first solo album," said Holopainen. "Well actually, I’d rather call this a project which I’m leading as it includes different musicians and vocalists that I’ve had great privilege to meet during these years. I’ve had this idea in the back of my head for years and now that Covid-19 hit hard on all of us, it was time to be creative and start this project.
"The project is titled Silver Lake by Esa Holopainen and I am really happy to announce that Silver Lake is now signed to Nuclear Blast, which was a very obvious choice as NB is also Amorphis record label and I know all the label-personnel super well. Another natural move is that Grey Beard Concerts & Management is managing my solo stuff as well. I look forward to revealing more news about the artists who are collaborating with me in Silver Lake."
Stay tuned for more info on Silver Lake (hopefully) soon.
