After the worldwide success of 2010’s "7th Symphony", the innovative Finnish cello rockers APOCALYPTICA engaged in a variety of critically acclaimed projects and are currently finishing their eighth full studio album, to be released in early 2015.

Since their inception in 1993, APOCALYPTICA have been mining classical form and structure, ever coming up with unpredictable new musical projects. Twenty-one years into an inimitable global career exceeding well over 1000 live concerts, performed in over 50 countries, they are still reinventing themselves – creating massive attention in media as well as the charts on all continents.

Following the release of "7th Symphony", APOCALYPTICA took a break from the standard album cycle in 2013 to pursue a range of musical projects. While Eicca Toppinen switched to drums in his sidekick band CHERRY AND THE VIPERS, Mikko Sirén played his instrument on the new EMIGRATE album, Richard Kruspe’s (RAMMSTEIN) project. Mikko also performed with Cheek, Finland’s biggest hip-hop artist, selling out Helsinki’s Olympic Stadium twice. Paavo Lötjönen collaborated with Tipe Johnson (LENINGRAD COWBOYS, APOCALYPTICA) and Perttu Kivilaakso earned the feuilleton’s acclaim with celebrated chamber music appearances.

Additionally, APOCALYPTICA composed new material and performed live in the multimedia event Wagner Reloaded by award-winning choreographer Gregor Seyffert. Earlier this year, APOCALYPTICA’s latest project "Apocalyptic Symphony" marked their first ever tour with a classical ensemble, the Avanti! Chamber Orchestra.

"We’re in perfect shape", Toppinen states, "and still hungry for the future of making music together. If you want to try new things, you'll never know where you end up. But we’re motivated and our heads are full of fresh ideas."
