Finnish Folk Metal Superstars Korpiklaani are about to kick off an extensive run of dates that will see them travelling across the globe throughout 2019. Kicking off with an 8 date Finnish tour on which they’ll be joined on stage by a brass section from Lahti Sinfonia and with support from Waltari, Trollfest and Profane Omen, the band will then hit the road across Europe alongside Turisas and Trollfest.
In advance of this trek, Korpiklaani has launched another track from their Beer Beer album, which will be included exclusively in the forthcoming Kulkija [Tour Edition], out February 15, 2019 via Nuclear Blast. Today’s version features guest vocals by Vesku of Finnish punk rock band Klamydia. Check it out here
“Klamydia is one of the biggest and best selling rock bands in Finland, but just like POPEDA and porn magazines, well liked but often in the secrecy of the neighbours or at least a bit drunk. It was a great honour to have Vesku on ‘Kaljaa’. I asked him and that was it. No need for business meetings or financial negotiations. Everything went smoothly and was very down to earth in the old school punk fashion. Now we need to get him to do this live with us! See you soon at our upcoming shows!”
Kinda hard to argue with that!
