First single and music video (Walborg) OUT NOW on all leading streaming platforms!

Pressrelease from REIGNING PHOENIX MUSIC GmbH: 

Today, Swedish symphonic metallers TUNGSTEN invite us to celebrate this year's Walpurgis Night early as they unveil the first digital single from their upcoming fourth studio album, "The Grand Inferno," which will be released later this year via their new label partner Reigning Phoenix Music (RPM). Delivering a strong melodic Nordic folk feeling which flirts with the band's early days, their new anthem 'Walborg' sounds like an instant classic from the group.

Lead singer Mike Andersson says, "The idea for the lyrics came up so naturally because of its enchanting music penned by Karl. On April 30, we celebrate something called 'Valborg' in Sweden and Finland, and in English it's called 'Walpurgis Night.' It's a very old tradition which has been celebrated since the Middle Ages where people light a big bonfire to burn out winter and to welcome spring. So the lyrics basically are a story about this holiday, but with a twist."

"My ambition and goal was to compose a classic TUNGSTEN song with strong hooks and a heavy Nordic folk influence. I also wanted to include more traditional folk instruments and voices in this song, blended with our trademark industrial trademark soundscapes," adds bass/keyboard player Karl Johansson.

As if new music wasn't enough from the TUNGSTEN camp, the quartet have also been announced as support act for seven upcoming Scandinavian dates of their labelmates SONATA ARCTICA. The line-up for the Swedish, Norwegian and Danish shows scheduled for September 2024 will be completed by iconic Greek metal act FIREWIND and German power metallers SERIOUS BLACK. Full details can be found below! 

Mike comments, "We're really excited and ready to tour with SONATA ARCTICA in Scandinavia in September. It'll be an honour to share the stages with these bands and to meet the audience. It's truly gonna be a blast and we can't wait!"
