New GOTTHARD Studio Album Due January 13

Artist: 
 
Quarter of a century ago, GOTTHARD set out to conquer the world with pure, straightforward rock and gigantic ballads and they’ve pulled off the trick: With 15 No.1 albums and plenty of multi-platinum awards, they’re not only the most successful Swiss band but also a staple in the global spotlight. Especially the much-deserved Swiss Music Award from last year has shown that the band’s nowhere near finished: GOTTHARD’s past 25 years have only been the first round – it’s definitely time for a new album in 2017!
 
GOTTHARD are currently refining their 12th studio album at the Yellow House Studio in Lugano. The title will be served straight to your desktop as soon as it’s decided. The third album with lead singer Nic Maeder is produced by Charlie Bauerfeind (Helloween, Blind Guardian among others) and Leo Leoni – so the dream team’s at it again: “We were all very happy with the workflow and the result of the BANG! production – so it was pretty clear that we wanted to give the great collaboration another shot!” The record will be released on January 13, 2017 on Musikvertrieb in Switzerland and internationally via PIAS – which means that the first Friday the 13th next year won’t spell bad luck. Quite the opposite.
 
ANNIVERSARY TOUR: KICKS OFF FEBRUARY 2017
 
Immediately after the release, the tour’s kicking off at full speed as well: From February 9, the big “25th Anniversary” tour is champing at the bit to turbocharge the new record with plenty of live rock ’n’ roll. The tour starts in Ravensburg and lays rubber all across Europe with full entourage. Danish rock band Pretty Maids will be Special Guests at all shows – the presale of this milestone birthday is already in full swing. Those who haven’t secured tickets yet, should check out Leo’s message again: “25 years of GOTTHARD – that means 150 songs to chose from, not mentioning our new album – that’s not going to be easy! However, we’ll select only the best for a proper anniversary party!”

WORLD PREMIERE: GOTTHARD & KROKUS IN MARCH 2017
 
There won’t be a dry shirt left when the ultimate Swiss rock package GOTTHARD & KROKUS celebrate their joint stage debut at “ROCK MONSTERS OF SWITZERLAND”, and that’s before the festival season even started. With double headliners delivering a lot more than just double the speed, the Festhalle in Bern and the Samsung Hall in Zurich are lucky if more than the exterior walls will be left once the dust settles. These two ‘Monster Shows’, as well as the night with Krokus as Very Special Guest in Lausanne, shouldn’t be missed by any means – it’s going to be jam-packed, hot and damn loud!
