Blank Manuskript set for European tour

Blank Manuskript have announced a European tour and revealed they’re working on their third album.

The prog outfit will issue The Waiting Soldier in the coming months and will hit the road this month, with support from fellow Austrians Mindspeak for some dates.

Blank Manuskript guitarist Alfons Wohlmuth says: “It’s a concept album about a guy who decides to call himself a soldier and guard an object. He is not a very intelligent guy, he hasn’t found his place in life and therefore tries to find his way by becoming a soldier.”
