Finnish Folk Metal Superstars KORPIKLAANI released their current studio album titled Kulkija (“Wanderer”) on September 7th 2018 through Nuclear Blast Records. But before the band presents some of the new tunes on their forthcoming Wayfarers & Warriors Tour 2019 with Turisas and Trollfest, they will release a special tour edition, which doesn’t only include the regular songs, but also a bonus CD titled Beer Beer, which will only be available in this physical package. The aforementioned disc includes 14 versions of KORPIKLAANI‘s iconic song ‘Beer Beer’, graced by the likes of Christopher Bowes(Alestorm), Steve “Zetro” Souza (Exodus), Andreas “Gerre” Geremia (Tankard), Jesper Anastasiadis (Turisas), Trollfest and many more of their friends’ bands and musicians. A first taster will be revealed very soon, stay tuned!

Pre-order Kulkija (Tour Edition) now:

Comments Jonne“Whilst being in the studio, we thought what better way to promote our own beer than by making a newer version of ‘Beer Beer’! As beer is international, we decided to ask friends of ours to sing in their own language and we also had the idea of trying to make as many language versions as possible. Now we can present you with the first 14 and we are extremely happy and grateful for these versions and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.”
