Says TURISAS violinist Olli Vanska of the track: “‘Into The Free’ shows a completely different side of the new album: it’s fast, uplifting, raw and contains some super catchy sing-along parts. We already played this ‘freedom anthem’ on a couple of summer festivals and the reception was really good right from the start. As an instant crowd mover, I believe the song has already earned its place in the setlist of the upcoming tours.”
The new album was produced by vocalist Mathias Nygard, and was recorded by Nygard and guitarist Jussi Wickstrom in a remote house outside of Helsinki, Finland. The mixing and mastering was done in London at Orgone Studios with producer Jaime Gomez Arellano [Ghost B.C., Cathedral, Primordial, Ulver].
In addition to its September 3 North American release, ‘Turisas2013’ will be released worldwide August 21 in Finland, August 26 in Europe, and September 2 in the U.K.
