The Finnish Battle Metal warriors are confirmed for this year’s edition of the prestigious Download Festival (Donington Park, UK, 10.-12.06.2011).
Mathias Nygard, vocals: “One of the best festival memories ever dates back to Download '07, walking up on the main stage before noon and getting that roaring response from the enormous crowd. What the fuck were they even doing up at that hour?? In ‘07 we had just released our previous album ‘The Varangian Way’ and now, four years later, we return to Donington with a brand new album again. It's going to be massive and I can't tell you how excited we all are to finally be back in the Mecca of Rock n Roll. Be prepared, TURISAS will paint the festival red and black!”
“Stand Up And Fight” is available in the following formats:
Ltd. Mediabook with Bonus-CD (2 additional tracks, special acoustic live performance as CD enhancement)
Gatefold LP + the entire album on CD
Please check the band’s facebook for several pre-order options.
