KORPIKLAANI Announce First DVD And Live CD
Korpiklaani are very pleased to announce that they are currently working on their first ever DVD release! The DVD will contain exclusive live footage filmed across two shows in 2015, with more live footage due to be filmed this year. A sensational live CD will also accompany the release.
Korpiklaani frontman Jonne Järvelä said of the announcement:
“Finally we can release our first ever DVD, with not just one show but from some of our favourite cities and festivals. We are also recording all shows on our upcoming tour for a bonus live CD, along with the recent tours in 2015. This will be the first of many more to come in the future!”
Part of the DVD footage has been filmed at their Volta, Moscow show (Apr 2015) and their Teatro Vorterix, Buenos Aires show (Dec 2015). Further footage is due to be filmed throughout their upcoming performances at Melkweg, Amsterdam (10 April) and at Masters of Rock Festival, Czech Republic (14-17 July) this year.
Lucky UK fans will have a chance to be a part of the live CD!
Part of the audio for the CD will be recorded throughout Korpiklaani’s upcoming UK tour alongside Moonsorrow this April.
Korpiklaani’s DVD & Live CD release will be due out late 2016/early 2017. Stay tuned for more information.
