KAMELOT has set a March 22 tentative release date for the group's highly anticipated follow-up to "Ghost Opera". The band recently spent time at various studios — including the Gate Studio in Wolfsburg, Germany — under the watchful eye of Sascha Paeth and Miro as producers.
"The new songs are really inspiring," stated guitarist Thomas Youngblood. "We feel the long touring and time away from writing has been perfect for new ideas and an aggressive approach to the new songs."
Bassist Glenn Barry left KAMELOT last year and was replaced by Sean Tibbetts.
