||Gimme a Reason...
|Some news about the new album:
Reason should still be released in March in Brazil, and on May 27th over here in France.
There will be 10 songs on the album, including "Turn away", the tune that has already been played live lately. There will also be a cover song that should take us back to the 80's...
Apparently the album won't start with a dramatic intro this time, but there should be some doom and rather gloomy sounds...
The last song of the disc should be called "Born to be" (wild??) and would be close to "Lasting Child" (see Angra's Angels Cry) with a much heavier pattern and a slowing down rhythm leading to an instrumental part. That's all we know so far!
||Shaman change names!
It's now official, our favorite band has a new name. So, Shaman is dead, long live Shaaman! The guys had to do that for copyrights reasons, due to another band already owning the name "Shaman". Not much change for you crazy fans, since it's pronounced the same, so you'll still be able to scream "Shaaaaaaaaman!!!" next time you see the guys live.
||Bunch of news
I know it's been a while since last time the English speaking part has been updated. So... Happy New Year to all the Shaman fans around the world!
So, what's new since last year? Well, if you have been looking at the official Shaman website, you might know a little bit about what's going on. First of all, Shaman's sophomore album is entitled REASON. It should be released in Brazil some time in March. Since the band is signed on various labels according to the countries, the release date might be different for each of them.
The kick-off for the tour should follow right after. Here are the first Brazilian dates for the Reason World Tour:
12/03/05 - CAMPO GRANDE/RJ
19/03/05 - JUNDIAÍ/SP
20/03/05 - CATANDUVA/SP
11/04/05 - PORTO ALEGRE/RS
16/04/05 - JUIZ DE FORA/MG
07/05/05 - TERESINA/PI
Our German, Swiss and Belgian friends might be glad to know that the band will also play in Eloyes (near Epinal, in the Vosges) on Saturday, April 2nd, 2005.
Shaman will perform as co-headliner with Freedom Call.
We'll let you know about the album and other European tourdates and as soon as we have any news.
