Finnish five-piece Sonata Arctica need no introduction. Besides significantly influencing the power/melodic metal scene, they’re a band that’s not only notorious for consistently delivering high quality studio albums but also for experimenting and breaking out of their musical comfort zone. Such musical flexibility has resulted in the aptly titled Acoustic Adventures touring cycles as well as the release of “Volume One” of their first acoustic album earlier this year.
Today, Sonata Arctica are pleased to announce that the continuation and second chapter of the aforementioned record is set to be unleashed to the world on September 30th, 2022, via Atomic Fire. The release of “Acoustic Adventures – Volume Two” not only completes the special acoustic saga but serves to finally celebrate the kickoff of their Finnish/European Acoustic Adventures tour, which was postponed multiple times in the midst of the Covid pandemic.
