German metallers STORMWARRIOR have issued the following update:
"Over the last weeks we have received a lot of questions about the final release date of the long-awaited live DVD package 'If It's Not In Your Bloode - You Will Never Understand'.
"Due to the fact that STORMWARRIOR has parted company with the Dockyard 1 label, and since Dockyard 1 was also designated to handle the promotional work for the live DVD package, we had to get to terms with a further delay of the release.
"We hope that you will understand that we were unable to update you on this, before we had the full overview of the situation.
"The DVD release will now be handled by Remedy Records in its entirety, as a one-off collaboration. We have not been given a final date yet, but the release of the package that we are all eagerly waiting for will definitely happen in the beginning of 2010.
"At the present, we are very excited about working on new material for the next studio album. We are aiming for a spring/early summer 2010 release of the follow-up to 'Heading Northe'. Furthermore, we are looking at possible STORMWARRIOR festival appearances and suitable tours for the New Year, so rest assured: We will see you guys out on the road in 2010."

Locomotive Records released the third studio album from STORMWARRIOR, entitled "Heading Northe", in North America in April. The CD, which was released in Europe in February via Dockyard 1, was recorded at the group's own Thunderhall Studios and was mixed with Piet Sielck (SAVAGE CIRCUS, IRON SAVIOR) before it was mastered at Tommy Hansen's (HELLOWEEN, HAMMERFALL, PRETTY MAIDS) Jailhouse Studios in Denmark.
STORMWARRIOR is known for its unique combination of "true metal" anthems with lyrics that are rooted in Nordic mythology.
After the release of its "Northern Rage" CD, STORMWARRIOR was invited to play all the biggest festivals like Wacken Open Air, Bloodstock, MANOWAR's Magic Circle and Earthshaker. The band also collaborated with Kai Hansen by performing HELLOWEEN classics during select live appearances.
