Dutch symphonic masters Epica are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their classic album “Design Your Universe” this fall. Today, they drop a special gold edition of the record, start the anniversary tour and unveil a lyric video for a brand new acoustic version of “Martyr Of The Free Word”. Watch the video below.
The special remastered “gold edition” of “Design Your Universe” with bonus acoustic tracks is dropping today, on October 4th via Nuclear Blast Records. Next to that, the acoustic songs are also 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. 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. All dates can be found here.
