Finnish cinematic metal band Dark Sarah‘s new album, “The Golden Moth,” will be released in May. The band checked in with the following album update:
We have great news for you: we have finished recording, mixing and mastering the new album – so it is finally ready and we are proud beyond words of the result!
The other good news is that we have signed a worldwide management deal with manager Kari Penttinen of Master Events (Battle Beast etc) and for Dark Sarah this means many new opportunities regarding promotion, shows and tours. We are happy to welcome Kari to our Dark Sarah family and with his help we hope to get our shows to Central Europe soon.
BUT. Together with our new manager we have come to the conclusion that the planned release for May 2018 should instead be postponed over the summer because of the fast-approaching festival and holiday season in Europe. We apologize for the delay, but hope you understand this decision as it is for a good reason.
Just like any other artist, we want to be able to promote the new album as well as we can when it is hot and new, which in this case means that we all still need to wait for a few more months for the release of The Golden Moth. This also means postponing the delivery of the perks that include music. We wish that You as our contributor know and understand the real reason for the delay. So do not worry, all the music perks you have contributed for will be delivered, but with a new schedule! We will keep you updated as soon as we know the release day. Thank you for understanding.
The third Dark Sarah album, “The Golden Moth,” is the last part of the first trilogy (The Chronicles). The trilogy tells about Dark Sarah’s travel through three worlds: The Middle World (Behind The Black Veil album), The Underworld (The Puzzle album) and The Upper World (The Golden Moth album).
On “The Golden Moth” album Dark Sarah has to face the final test and find her way to the gods in the Upper World. After she had solved the puzzle in The Underworld and found the three keys, the Iron birds came there for her and took her to the Upper World, a deserted waste land where the gods rule.
