The seventh studio album ‘7th Symphony’ from rock Finnish cello-quartet Apocalyptica just debuted. Apocalyptica’s nationwide tour supporting the release kicked off tonight at the Nokia Theatre in New York City, and will wrap up September 13th at the Roseland Theatre in Portland. The band will play a mix of favorites from past albums as well as brand new tracks including the ‘End of Me’, which has been steadily climbing the Billboard Active Rock Chart’s Top 20.
7th Symphony was produced by Joe Barresi and features eight instrumentals plus four headbangers with guest vocals, including the first single and video ‘End Of Me’ with lead vocals by Bush’s Gavin Rossdale. Dave Lombardo (Slayer), Lacey (Flyleaf), Joe Duplantier (Gojira) and Brent Smith (Shinedown) also make cameos on the album. In addition, producer Howard Benson (Three Days Grace, Creed, My Chemical Romance) returns for production duties on two tracks.
A stream ‘7th Symphony’ on AOL Music has since been removed.
