|New Ensiferum pushed back|
2007-02-14 by Stoic | 10 Comments
Here's the band's official statement as taken from their site:
Due to contractual obligations, promotional deadlines and manufacturing delays, we have been forced to move the release of "Victory Songs" to the 20th of April 2007!
This is very unfortunate, and we're very sorry about the delay, but there's not much that we or our record companies can do to make this album hit the stores any earlier. If we could, we certainly would because we know that all of you are eager to get a listen to the new songs!
Despite this time-taking trouble, it's going to be one killer of an album and we hope that you will have the patience to wait just a little longer!
Wishing you all the best,
On a side note, Ensiferum will soon be on the road for a European tour, along with Naildown and Suidakra (for most shows at least).

No, I really was looking forward to this album. I also wish they would come to America.
ya, i was really looking forward to this too, its been sort of a countdown for me really and now we have to wait 2 more months+, and i also wish they would come to america
At least the wait's not as long as the one we have to wait for the new Wintersun album. That's not till August and it was supposed to be in Novemeber.

That sucks, I'm looking forward to this.
Anybody know the American release date?
If April 20th is the european date then I guess it will be released in the US in the beginning of May. Thought it had already leaked though...
It's already leaked, so if you're convinced you're going to buy it regardless, search it out.
I try not download music. I also like to wait until the album ships instead of ruining all the surprises by hearing everything before it comes out.
Has anyone else seen the cover art for Victory Songs? It's really awesome. It's officially my new favorite cover art of all time. This Message Edited On 02.14.07
Yes, pretty epic, I love this kind of cover artwork
Yea, I've always liked the viking type covers, but this cover art owns Ensiferum's previous two and that's saying something.
April just keeps racking up the events, eh?
