‘Orphaned Land’ Making Of ‘All Is One’ Documentary Teaser Posted, Support Acts For Upcoming European Tour Announced


Orphaned Land band 2013Israeli progressive folk metal masters Orphaned Land will release their sixth full-length album, “All Is One”, in North America on June 25 [one day earlier internationally] via Century Media Records. The cover artwork for the follow-up to 2010’s “The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR” was created by the French artist Metastazis [Paradise Lost, As I Lay Dying, Sonne Adam & Watain] by perfectly incorporating the three biggest religious symbols into one piece of art.

“All Is One” will be made available as a limited deluxe book edition, including three bonus songs and a bonus DVD, as well as limited double gatefold LP, including the three bonus songs and in different vinyl colors. A standard jewelcase CD format and digital download will also be available.

The limited-edition version of “All Is One” contains a very special bonus DVD with some very exclusive music clips and an interesting documentary about the genesis and recording of the album. A sneak peek at the documentary is available below.

Orphaned Land‘s forthcoming effort will be the band’s first to feature guitarist Chen Balbus following the departure of Matty Svatizky in June 2012 due to “personal” and “professional” issues.

From September to November, Orphaned Land will play stages all over Europe in support of “All Is One”. The band is happy to announce their upcoming European tour will be supported by Klone [France], Bilocate [Jordan], Khalas [Israel/Palestine] a.k.a The Arabic Rock Orchestra and The Mars Chronicle [France] as the opening acts. Orphaned Land often speak of the power of music to turn purported enemies into friends, frequently pay homage and encourage collaborations with the artists from different cultures & religious backgrounds. On “All is One” tour, you will be able to see the bands from Israel, Palestine, Jordan and France all together as one, as music must be the best religion out there, as music brings people together and it’s the only voice of hope.

All dates & locations are listed below.
