“Stones Grow Her Name”, the seventh studio album by Finnish melodic metallers SONATA ARCTICA was released on May, 18th – and achieved gold status in their homecountry after just one week. „This is our 9th gold disc from Finland. Kiitos Suomi“, was the comment of vocalist Tony Kakko. Finally the band received the award on stage, while playing at the famous „Tavastia“ Club in Helsinki. „Although it's not our first album to go Gold in Finland, it always feels just as amazing that so many fans appreciate what we do. On behalf of the whole band I'd like to thank you all who bought the album and thus helped us out. Our „Stones Grow Her Name“ World Tour is well underway and I look forward to seeing you at the shows on the upcoming European and American Tours as well as the places we'll hit next year. Cheers, Beers and Thanks“, says Henkka in the name of all the Sonata boys. SONATA ARCTICA - "Stones Grow Her Name World Tour 2012" German dates presented by Rock Hard, Musix and BLAST!
