They said in a statement last month:
TIME II RELEASE AND WINTERSUN CROWDFUNDING II (FOLLOW-UP UPDATE)
So last Friday, we dropped the biggest news and gave a Wintersun album update of a lifetime! And yes indeed, TIME II is finally done. 100% DONE! And it sounds massive!
Were you guys surprised?
Thank you to everyone for supporting and helping us to get it finally finished! We’ll be dropping more information along the way about the album and how all this happened.
Now… We need just a little bit more patience from you guys while we prepare everything for the release. The album booklet (Gyula Havancsák is working on it), promo photos (we have a photoshoot soon with Onni Wiljami Kinnunen), merchandise, physical release (CD, vinyl) with Nuclear Blast, etc.
If everything goes according to plan, the album release will happen in the late summer of 2024, the latest early fall.
Before that, we will launch the second crowdfunding campaign, planned to start on March 1st, which will be a pre-order for a very big PACKAGE that will include TIME II. More information about this later, but let’s just say that there are a lot more surprises we have in store for you!
Back in 2012, WINTERSUN put out their first LP in eight years, Time I, and said Time II would be out in around half a year after the launch, but unfortunately that never happened.
WINTERSUN‘s latest album, The Forest Seasons, was released in July 2017 via Nuclear Blast. The band cited Antonio Vivaldi’s violin concerto The Four Seasons as an inspiration for the album title.
