SEVERAL FESTIVALS CONFIRMED FOR 2019!!

Hey guys!

It’s been a while since this was announced, but due to some technical issues with our site, we didn’t have the chance of updating it!

PERSEFONE has been confirmed in two GREAT festivals for 2019:

- 70000 tons of metal! YES! we will be on the boat! For the first time in our history we will play on international waters and we are thrilled with the idea!

- KARMØIGEDDON Festival! Norway, for the first time, we will play in your country!! For a long time we have intended to go and play to your country and we cannot wait for this to happen.

More dates to be announced soon! :-D

NEW NORTH AMERICAN TOUR!!!

GREAT NEWS TODAY!

We will be headlining our first ever tour in North America this August/September, in conjunction with our show at the prestigious ProgPower festival in Atlanta.

We will bring “The Aathma tour – The Cosmic Walkers”, to our audience in both Mexico, USA and Canada, following our latest release “Aathma” which has been unsurprisingly successful on this continent. The demand for the band has been very high among the North American fans, and Persefone is not a band that tend to ignore their fans.

Moe Espinosa,Keys/clean vocals comments: “”It’s been a long time since we announced that we were preparing a North American Tour. Today, the day has finally come where we can announce the tour itself! In August we will finally cross the Atlantic to meet our fans and friends personally there and we simply cannot wait! Mexico, United States and Canada! A dream come true! See you all there!!”" The 10-show tour will take Persefone to some of the largest cities on the North American continent, such as Mexico City, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Atlanta.

Persefone is bringing along the thrash/power veterans @manticora_dk from Denmark, as support act on the tour. Manticora are releasing their 8th album in August – a concept album, following the release of the novel “To Kill To Live To Kill”, written by the band themselves, so the timing is perfect. Manticora has previously been touring the US as support for Jon Oliva’s Pain.

NEW PERSEFONE SINGLE! IN LAK’ECH!

In celebration of the up-coming European tour, starting out on March 24th, we have decided to treat the fans with a brand-new track, honoring their immense support.

“In Lak’Ech” is a song, incorporating elements and atmospheres from the band’s entire back catalogue and should aim at satisfying any Persefone listener, no matter which previous album is your favourite.

Miguel Espinosa (keys/clean vocals) explains:

“There’s been a lot of stuff going on lately in the Persefone camp. Tours, festivals, new releases… And from time to time we like to get ourselves involved in new musical experiences, other than playing live. So after our tour in Japan we came back full of ideas and we jumped into the studio and started working on what would become “In Lak’Ech”. The conceptual idea of the unity of the human, being the whole Universe, got us really inspired and it took us only two days to have the song ready. Then we contacted Logan Mader to make the mixing and Tim Charles from Ne Obliviscaris for him to participate in the song. As smooth as the song writing, both the mix, the violin and vocal part worked perfectly with the mood of the moment, and we are really glad to have finished this song that we will play on our upcoming tours!”
Tim Charles from Ne Obliviscaris:

“Persefone’s ‘AATHMA’ was in my opinion one of the best albums of 2017, so when the band approached me about collaborating on this song I jumped at the chance to be a small part of their musical journey.
Sometimes when guest appearing on other bands songs I need to adjust how I write or perform to ensure it fits their style, but with Persefone it seemed straight away a perfect match. One where I could just be myself and have it organically fit in as part of their sound. Creating an end result I think fans of both Persefone and Ne Obliviscaris will enjoy immensely.”

“In Lak’Ech” is set for release on March 23rd, as a 12″ vinyl single, as well as through streaming, worldwide through ViciSolum Productions.
