Eluveitie Working on Second Acoustic Album, “Evocation II”, Promo Video Available


eluveitie2015promo_638Swiss folk metallers Eluveitie are working on their next album, the long-awaited second part of their acoustic concept effort “Evocation”.

The band plans to start the studio recording at the end of the year and to release the album next spring.

Eluveitie mastermind Chrigel Glanzmann comments: “We’re looking forward to “Evocation II”!

“The concept of the album sticks in our head already for years and it has matured a lot.

“Our second acoustic album will continue the tradition of the first one but it will be even more rough, folk and mystic! It will be the Celtic mythology in its pure culture, formed into music!”

Eluveitie has also announced its first Swiss acoustic tour of 2016. At these shows, Eluveitie will give fans a taste of what they can expect from the new record in the form of some brand new material.

Eluveitie in May announced the departure of drummer Merlin Sutter, vocalist Anna Murphy and guitarist Ivo Henzi.

Eluveitie‘s latest album “Origins” was released on August 5th. 2014 via Nuclear Blast Records. The cover artwork for the CD was created by Eluveitie frontman Chrigel Glanzmann and can be seen below. The effort was once again recorded at New Sound Studio in Pfäffikon, a municipality in the canton of Zurich in Switzerland, with producer Tommy Vetterli (a.k.a. Tommy T. Baron; Coroner/ex-Kreator guitarist).
