Turisas:  check out "Into The Free" from "Turisas2013"
Head to Youtube to check out another brand new song entitled "Into The Free" from TURISAS upcoming album "Turisas2013". The band has already played "Into The Free" on the past festivals and fans were eagerly waiting to hear the studio version.

Olli V?nsk? (violin) on the new song: "'Into The Free' shows a completely different side of the new album: it's fast, uplifting, raw and contains some super catchy singalong parts. We already played this 'freedom anthem' on a couple of summer festivals and the reception was really good right from the start. As an instant crowd mover, I believe the song has already earned its place in the setlist of the upcoming tours."

"Turisas2013" is scheduled for a release on August 23 in Finland/Germany/Austria/Switzerland/Norway/Australia/NZ and August 26 in Europe while UK will follow up September 2 and North America September 3.

Yet again the album was produced by vocalist Mathias Nyg?rd and the majority of the album recorded by Nyg?rd and guitarist Jussi Wickstr?m in a remote house outside of Helsinki that worked as the "Turisas2013" command centre and head quarter. Additional recordings were done in 3 other studios: the drums at Atomic Spa Studio and orchestral recordings at 5 by 5 Studio, both in Helsinki. A lot of vocals and numerous additional elements were tracked at Sound Supreme Studio in H?meenlinna where TURISAS also recorded "The Varangian Way" and "Stand Up And Fight". The mix and mastering was done in London at Orgone Studios with producer Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost B.C., Cathedral, Primordial, Ulver).

While the band is playing selected festivals during the summer season the release of "Turisas2013" will be supported by extensive European touring: After joining the Heidenfest 2013 they will play a UK headlining run.
