Listen to a New HELLOWEEN Track featuring Classic Lineup Members!

Written by Jovan Ristić

Yesterday we broke the news that HELLOWEEN are going to release a brand new track on October 13 featuring the return of two members of the classic lineup, Michael Kiske and Kai Hansen. You can hear the new song, named “Pumpkins United” after the upcoming tour below! The song, clocking at a little over 6 minutes features vocal contributions from all three singers of the band: Kai Hansen, Michael Kiske and current singer Andi Deris. The two returning members are joining the lineup consisting of Deris, guitarists Michael Weikath and Sascha Gerstner, bass player Markus Grosskopf and drummer Dani Löble.

The band states: “This year, Christmas and New Year’s eve happen in October, because the aptly titled track ‘Pumpkins United’ blends everything that has made this band world-famous and a true trailblazer of an own sub genre: power guitar riffs, three-part guitar solos, double bass thunderstorms, and melodic-anthemic choruses soaring above all else, performed by all three singers of the band’s history!” The song is available as a free download on the band’s official website and will also be released as an exclusive 10” vinyl single on December 8th, 2017 via Nuclear Blast.

The interest for the upcoming reunion tour is high and the tickets are selling fast as the band has already sold out several shows in Germany, Finland, Japan and several other countries. The tour kicks off on October 19 in Monterrey, Mexico and spans throughout April 2018. You can see the full list of dates below. The band will be celebrating the anniversary of their legendary double album “Keeper of the Seven Keys” with shows that are going to be nearly three hours long and featuring tracks from the band’s rich back catalog.
