Last week, Swedish-American power metal supergroup NorthTale announced the release of their debut album titled “Welcome to Paradise”, for August 2nd, 2019 through Nuclear Blast.

Today, their loyal and consistently growing fanbase’s patience pays off as the band unveil the first single, “Higher”. The supporting lyric video can be viewed below.

Founding members Bill Hudson (guitars) & Christian Eriksson (vocals) state: “This is a special song for all of us. It was the first time we collaborated as writers. Lyrically it’s about reflecting on daily life and how we should together work for a better tomorrow. It’s a very good combination of everything we want to do: catchy melodies, ripping solo, keyboard/guitar duels and the uplifting lyrics”.

NorthTale - behind this illustrious name lies nothing less than a Swedish-American power metal supergroup! Formed by guitarist Bill Hudson (Trans-Siberian Orchestra, I Am Morbid, ex-U.D.O.), vocalist Christian Eriksson (ex-Twilight Force), and drummer Patrick Johansson (ex-Malmsteen, ex-W.A.S.P. etc.) in late 2017, the line-up was quickly completed by Mikael Planefeldt (bass) as well as keyboardist Jimmy Pitts. Delivering a load of (largely) fast-paced anthems, imbued with Eriksson’s soaring vocals, the band will not only please fans of titans such as Helloween, Sonata Arctica, Gamma Ray, Stratovarius among others, but draw new fans to the genre too.

The group is set to conquer not only your audio systems, but also the world’s stages, with their very first gig set to take place at their label mates Sabaton’s very own open air festival (Aug 14-17), shortly later heading into two concerts in Tokyo, Japan for the Evoken Festival (Aug 30 & Sep 1).

Festivals 2019:
14-17.08. S Falun - Sabaton Open Air
