SONATA ARCTICA: HIGHEST 1st WEEK SALES EVER - 2012-05-30

2012-05-30 - After hearing that SONATA ARCTICA’s latest album, Stones Grow Her Name, achieved “highest 1st week sales” status in North America with 2,225 copies sold, vocalist/songwriter Tony Kakko checked in from his home in Finland with the following message:

"North America! Awesome! Our best ever 1st week sales with Stones Grow Her Name! Thank you so much! Feels good to hear this kind of news from the other side of the great puddle. Especially now, when the times are what they are... You guys rock! Sure hope to get all the tour plans ready as soon as possible, so we can announce out next great North American adventure. See you guys hopefully soon! Miss ya! Cheers!”

Last week, Stones Grow Her Name achieved Gold status in SONATA’s native country for the ninth Finnish Gold disc of their career. The album also debuted at #9 on England’s rock album charts.

Featuring guest backing vocals by Timo Kotipelto, orchestrations that include trumpets, violins, viola caipiras and the banjo, plus an homage to naturalist & film maker Sir David Attenborough, Stones Grow Her Name was released in North America on May 22nd. The album was recorded in several studios all over Finland, mixed at Sonic Pump Studios by Mikko Karmila, and mastered at Chartmakers by Svante Forsbäck.
