After debuting a new live show, and some new music during the summer European festival season, King Diamond has now revealed the name and theme for their first studio album in 12 years The Institute.
Fans can expect the debut single to arrive this fall and an album in 2020; in the meantime, a tour teaser with a sneak peak of the new stage set which can be viewed in the video above.
The band comments:
For reasons unknown to you, it is clear that you have no way of making it to ‘The Institute’ on your own at this point. Therefore, we will bring THE INSTITUTE to you. You don’t want to miss this special opportunity for treatment only we can give you. It could be for your own good, you know…
In support of The Institute project, King Diamond will embark on a North American tour with Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats and Idle Hands in November/December.
King Diamond goes on to further comment:
Watch out North America, we are coming for you this Winter. I’m very proud to bring two special and amazing guests to you. Their names are Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats, plus Idle Hands. Make an appointment now.
Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats adds:
As the long nights draw in and the temperatures drop, I can’t think of a better artist to creep around North America with than the legendary King Diamond. You’ll all be in for a treat…See you there!
Idle Hands also made a comment saying:
Touring with the iconic King Diamond is nothing short of a dream and we are excited to make it a reality.
