Esa comments:

Under The Red Cloud” is produced by Jens Bogren who did amazing job with the album. There’s a lot’s of elements in the songs but every note and element is in perfect harmony so that the result is fucking heavy and melodic. All I can say is that »Under The Red Cloud« will be in my personal Top 3 AMORPHIS albums that we’ve ever done.“

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of their classic “Tales From The Thousand Lakes”, AMORPHIS will play at some European festivals this summer. In September, they will start touring in support of their upcoming release “Under The Red Cloud”.
