Wintersun achieved Necrophagist status after their first album, but fortunately made a recovery with Time I. Now they're talking about Time II's release and some new material for the fans!
According to the Wintersun Facebook page:
Dear fans & Wintersun maniacs,
we had a voting online recently in which we asked whether you would like to hear a new song from TIME II – and the answer was very clear. We want to thank everyone for voting and being a part of the upcoming WINTERSUN live set.
On the upcoming North American Tour we are exclusively going to play the new song The Way Of The Fire for you live!
We are very much looking forward to these special evenings with all of you, also in light of celebrating a part of the brand new album which will be out 2014. That´s our gift to you and truly something special. We cannot wait for you to hear the TIME II material and we are very happy you voted this way!
Tickets sell very fast in some cities, so we want to give especially you – our Facebook fans – a heads up on it. Get your tickets in time to make sure you will be part of this special and unique evening with WINTERSUN before it's too late.
We are going to announce the winner of the “Dinner With WINTERSUN“ contest soon, stay tuned…
Cheers from Helsinki,
Jari, Kai, Jukka & Teemu
I'm really hoping someone gears up for this and gets a good bootleg of it. I've been dying for Time II ever since I heard Time I, especially since they had originally said the two releases would be exactly six months apart… not that anyone really believed that, but dammit I wanted to!
At least we know for sure now that Time II will definitely be out next year! I'm stoked as fuck for the new song though. Get dates for Wintersun's upcoming tour right here. Bring it!
