Tobias Sammet’s Avantasia project to release ‘Moonglow’ in January 2019

Posted by on May 3, 2018

Tobias Sammet’s Avantasia project has announced that the next album Moonglow will be released in January 2019. Considering 2016’s Ghostlights was one of the best albums of the year as well as him having brought the project to North America for the first time, we have high expectations for hearing the new record and perhaps seeing it live again. Additionally, Sammet has revealed that he will embark on a Avantasia – Moonglow World Tour 2019, which he considers the biggest rock event of the year.

Sammet explained:

“I’ve been trying to calm things down for the last 18 months, but apparently my best way of relaxing is to be creative! During this phase, tons of ideas have been coming to my mind, that literally demanded to be realized in Avantasia’s epic style. I was so convinced of the songs that I realized very quickly: if ever there is to be a new chapter of Avantasia, then it has to happen with this material – past all the trends and rules of the music industry, hand-made and personal, with epic 10-minute pieces alongside catchy rock songs! Everything was created for only one reason: to write great music without any business men shaping it into bite-sized pieces for the modern entertainment landscape. ‘Moonglow’ will be the most lavish album of my career, the biggest, most colorful thing and the best and most unreasonable luxury, I have ever created in my life. I can’t wait to release the album in January and then take the Moonglow World Tour on a journey around the globe, where you will witness the biggest show Avantasia has ever put on stage!”
