KAMELOT will once again enlist German keyboardist Günter Werno (VANDEN PLAS) for their forthcoming Mexican tour and appearance at Spain's Piorno Rock Festival. Günter has been a frequent guest of KAMELOT on several tours and festival appearances and has also played the keyboards on the song "Snow", the bonus track on the limited-edition version of "Epica".
As previously reported, KAMELOT will begin the second phase of the new album songwriting this month when vocalist Roy Khan leaves the cold regions of Norway for the sunny seaside town of Anna Maria, Florida to write with the other band members.
KAMELOT have thus far written five new songs for the follow-up to this year's "Epica", including "March of Mephisto", "Nothing Ever Dies" and "Serenade".
The group's forthcoming album will be their first for SPV/Steamhammer Records, with whom they signed a worldwide deal last spring. An early 2004 release is expected.
Upcoming KAMELOT shows:
Feb. 13 – Monterrey, MEX @ TBA
Feb. 14 - Mexico City, MEX @ TBA
Feb. 15 - Guadalajara, MEX @ TBA
Feb. 28 - Granada, SPA @ Piorno Rock Festival
