Epica announce re-release of ‘Design Your Universe’ – Gold Edition

Posted by on July 17, 2019

While we’re waiting for the follow-up to 2016’s The Holographic Principle, Epica have announced the 10th anniversary edition of 2009’s Design Your Universe. These Dutch symphonic metal masters will be re-releasing their overall fourth studio effort as a Gold Edition on October 4th via Nuclear Blast. This version will consist of the album remixed and remastered by Joost van den Broek with updated artwork as well as a second disc containing an acoustic version of the classic album.   

Vocalist Simone Simons expressed her excitement:

 “Design Your Universe is an album that is very dear to me not only because of the music, but also because of the message behind it. I am looking forward to the anniversary release and all the upcoming shows. The bonus CD is a worthy addition to DYU and I can’t wait for you all to hear the songs!” 

Pre-orders for this re-release will be available on August 9th. In the meantime, you can pre-order their book Essence of Epica at this location
