Poets of the Fall Reveals New Studio Album Ghostlight

This week, Poets of the Fall revealed their highly anticipated ninth studio album, Ghostlight, will be released on April 29th!

Fans won't have to wait that long though, as the group has their first single, Requiem for My Harlequin scheduled for an (honest) April 1st release. 

Talking about what listeners can look forward to in their upcoming album, Marko Saaresto states "Ghostlight is all about dramatic melodic rock and massive, impressive ballads. The first single, Requiem for My Harlequin, is something in between; a massive rock'n roll melodrama, that hurtles on flashing and blaring like a frenzied parade."

Alongside the teaser for the single and official reveal of Ghostlight, pre-orders for the album has gone live, with some exciting goodies! The Backstage Rock Shop, the owner of the POTF's official website, now has a wide selection of bundles featuring new t-shirts, exclusive gold vinyl LPs, cassettes, CDs, signed postcards, and hoodies.

A bit of information about the band: Poets of the Fall has had a long history with Remedy, which officially started back in 2003 with Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. For the game, POTF created their first song, Late Goodbye based on a poem by Sam Lake. Later, the band returned for Alan Wake, creating the custom songs The Poet and the Muse and Children of the Elder God. Their song War, from their album, Twilight Theater, also made an appearance in the game. Balance Slays the Demon was created specifically for Alan Wake's American Nightmare, and The Happy Song (which appeared in the album Temple of Thought) can be discovered in the game. Their latest collaboration took place in Control, with the epic custom song, Take Control. My Dark Disquet from their album, Ultraviolet, was prominently featured if you know where to look!
