POWERWOLF have revealed their new single, “Sinners of the Seven Seas”, from the upcoming studio album, Wake Up The Wicked, out July 26, 2024 via Napalm Records.

Watch “Sinners of the Seven Seas” below.

Powerwolf: “The filming of the accompanying high-quality music video took place in Switzerland and in the south of France. The main location is a historical replica of a famous three-mast sailing ship from the fleet of Magellan’s first circumnavigation of the world in the 16th century. The replica has already been used as a location for several films and series.

Watch the previously released first single “1589”  below.

The video was directed by Adam Barker.

“Wake Up The Wicked” — the follow-up to the extremely successful “Call Of The Wild” (2021) — will arrive just in time for the award-winning band’s first-ever full North American tour, starting in August 2024, followed by their biggest European headline tour to date, the “Wolfsnächte 2024”.

“Wake Up The Wicked” was once again produced by Joost Van Den Broek at Sandlane Recording Facilities and marks a new benchmark and undisputed career highlight for the band. The new album is hard, surprising and full of variety. While staying true to their established, loved sound, POWERWOLF go one step further and showcase a different facet of their deft musical and technical skills. This is evident, for example, on the outstanding single “1589”, which is based on a true story from the 16th century.

20 years after their formation in 2004, POWERWOLF are expanding their repertoire with the highest quality and adding many future live hits to their extraordinary discography. “Wake Up The Wicked” is yet another statement cementing the status of the band as a leading force in the world of heavy metal

POWERWOLF states: “We are stoked to announce the biggest tour in POWERWOLF‘s history and the release of a brand new album in 2024!

“Without going into the details of the album yet, ‘Wolfsnächte’ 2024 will be a breathtaking experience not to be missed! You can expect a massive production and some surprises you haven’t seen from us before! Our friends from HAMMERFALL and WIND ROSE will join us to ensure a perfect evening!”

POWERWOLF has conquered countless stages at the world’s biggest summer festivals, and their last “Wolfsnächte” headline tours (2019, 2022),as well as their highly anticipated North American debut in early 2023, were almost completely sold out – resulting in a massive triumph. They have performed headlining sets at Wacken Open Air and Summer Breeze, as well as held premium slots at genre festival giants such as HellfestGraspop Metal MeetingMasters Of Rock and many more, captivating enormous audiences. No other German metal band has been able to write a success story even remotely comparable in recent years!

POWERWOLF is undoubtedly one of the most celebrated and successful heavy metal bands of the last decade. Multiple No. 1 album chart entries, gold and platinum records, huge sold-out arena shows, as well as headline slots at the biggest festivals have paved their way.

The story of POWERWOLF, beginning in 2004, reads like a true fairytale, but is the result of the efforts of one of the most innovative and entertaining live bands on the heavy metal planet. POWERWOLF have secured a remarkable collection of gold and platinum awards, starting in 2015, when they reached gold status for the first time in the Czech Republic with their album “Blessed & Possessed”. Additionally, both “Preachers Of The Night” (2013) and the subsequent masterpiece “The Sacrament Of Sin” (2018),as well as the groundbreaking streaming event “The Monumental Mass: A Cinematic Metal Event” (2022),entered the German album and DVD charts at No. 1 (a massive achievement for an audio-visual release). The thrilling DVD “The Metal Mass” (2016) also secured the No. 1 spot on the German DVD charts. Most recently, the latest studio album, “Call Of The Wild”, entered the album charts at No. 2 (and staying for 16 weeks in the charts) while the hit single “Dancing With The Dead” went gold and platinum. The best-of album “Best Of The Blessed”, released in 2020, also successfully entered the German charts at No. 2, while 2023’s “Interludium”, featuring six new studio songs and gems and rarities from the band’s history, climbed to No. 3.
