Hammerfall to take a break throughout 2013 and return in 2014 with a new album

Hammerfall have announced that in the midst of celebrating the 15th anniversary of their debut album ‘Glory To The Brave,’ it is now time to take a break and they will do so in 2013.

“It has been an unbelievable first 15 years, to say the least”, says guitarist Oscar Dronjak, “and now we are taking a pause to ensure that we have another 15 years ahead of us.”

Although there will be no activity from the band in 2013, they have stated that they will return in 2014 with a brand new album: “The plan is to use the year off to recharge our batteries and come back more vital than ever with a new album in 2014.”

The band will be will celebrate the anniversary of the album with two special shows this year, the first of these shows in Sweden on the 28th July and then a week later at Wacken Open Air in Germany. The Wacken performance will be special to the band as it is the first show Hammerfall ever did outside Sweden.

“Obviously, the gig to attend is the one in Dalhalla, that will be the biggest and most special show we have ever done! Two hours of music, special effects and guest artists! But we will not forget that it all started at Wacken for us once upon a time” Joacim says.

“This is why we have decided to pull out all the stops for these two shows, and really make them special”, Oscar says, “It will be a fitting end to the first 15 years of our career”.
