The special remastered “gold edition” of “Design Your Universe” with bonus acoustic tracks will be released as a 2-CD version and a digital version on October 4th via Nuclear Blast Records. Next to that, the acoustic songs will be released as a separate Picture Disc.
Simone Simons, the vocalist of the band, comments: “’Design Your Universe’ is an album that is very dear to me not only because of the music but also because of the message behind it. I am looking forward to the anniversary release and all the upcoming shows. The bonus CD is a worthy addition to DYU and I can’t wait for you all to hear the songs!”
In order to celebrate the anniversary of their fourth studio album properly, Epica announced five special DYU shows in Germany, The Netherlands, France, Turkey and Russia. Due to huge demand, shows in Latin America and North America were added later. You can see all dates below:
