To mark the occasion, the group kicks off an extensive Russian tour in St. Petersburg today.
Comments founding member Jonne
“It’s been 15 years since we released our very first album and this is now our 10th album. After each and every album I always sit down and think about the music, and conclude that it is our best work yet. The great thing is that it was never promo bullshit, I honestly felt like that.
Now it’s the day of our Kulkija album release, I’m sitting on a train to Russia for the first show of our Kulkija world tour and I’m feeling good and proud of these 15 years and the best possible 10th Korpiklaani album!”
