Kamelot to launch Haven in May

US symphonic metal outfit Kamelot have announced details of their 11th album, Haven.

The follow-up to 2012’s Silverthorn will be launched across Europe on May 8 after they inked a deal with Napalm Records.

Guitarist Thomas Youngblood says: “There is a grey cloud that is forming over our world. We are here to find that silver lining with an album that is both dark and melancholy, yet uplifting – and giving the listener a Haven in a world gone mad.”

Along with the standard release, a deluxe version comes with a bonus disc featuring 15 extra tracks including alternative versions of songs from the main album.

Kamelot tour the UK in March including an appearance at Hammerfest VII:

Mar 12: Dublin The Button Factory

Mar 13: Pwllheli Hammerfest VII

Mar 14: London O2 Academy Islington
