Siena Root European Tour Starts Feb. 27; New Single out Soon

Siena Root touring? Sweet. Siena Root releasing a new single? Even sweeter. Siena Root working on a new record? Ah, there it is. That’s the stuff.

The Swedish classic heavy rockers will head out a mostly-Germany tour starting Feb. 27, bringing their collaboration with vocalist Lisa Lystam to stages also in Belgium and Austria. Neat. I won’t get to see them, but hey, I’m glad they’re getting out. It’s really the prospect of new material from the Swedish outfit that’s got my interest piqued. Their last record was 2017’s A Dream of Lasting Peace (review here), so it hasn’t been all that long since they had a release, but a new single and word of progress on a new LP is definitely welcome. Even if it doesn’t happen until 2020, the point is it’s happening. And that only makes the world a better place.

The tour was announced a bit ago by the band, but I’m slow, so here are the dates and their word of progress on the next full-length:

We’re proud to let you know that Siena Root is on tour again! This time the spotlight will be on their recent successful collaboration with blues singer Lisa Lystam, as well as the upcoming single release “In the Fire”. The band is hitting the road in the middle of their work on the next album.

“We had the opportunity to work [on songs] in this vintage rural cinema where legends like Ingmar Bergman used to active. The song writing continues and we are looking forward to make another recording soon.”
