Northern Irish pagan metallers Waylander has announced they are planning on releasing a new album in late 2013 to commemorate their 20th anniversary.
“As many of you may be aware of, 2013 sees Waylander celebrate two decades of existence, an impressive milestone in anyone’s book,” says the band’s Ard Chieftain O’Hagan in a statement.
“We plan to have a new release out towards the very end of 2013, which, we hope will please fans both old and new.
“We will write and record a concept mini album which will deal with the Four Fire Festivals of the Irish Pagan calendar, expanding on the subject matter dealt with in ‘Twin Fires Of Beltíne.’
As well as reworking ‘Twin Fires Of Beltíne,’ slightly, the other three songs will deal with Imbolg, Lughnasadh and Samhain. As a bonus, we will include an interview DVD, explaining the history of the band and revealing the truth behind the trials and tribulations of the turbulent lifespan of the beast that has become known as Waylander.”

Waylander’s last album, Kindred Spirits, was released last summer on Listenable Records.
