HELLOWEEN reveal ‘Pumpkins United’ single + lyric video; 10″ pre-order live!

Written by John Deaux

Earlier this year German Power Metal legends HELLOWEEN announced that they would be reuniting with former members Kai Hansen (guitar) and Michael Kiske (vocals) for a World Tour under the banner of “Pumpkins United”. It would mean bringing together the classic line-up of the band that recorded the seminal ‘Keeper Of The Seven Keys Parts 1 & 2’ albums (1987/88).

HELLOWEEN’s upcoming Pumpkins United World Tour will be nothing short of incredible. The super-tour, with plenty of dates being sold out for a while now, will be witnessed by more than 10,000 fans in Mexico City, 16,000 Brazilians rocking out in São Paulo, 9,000 fans in Santiago de Chile while in Stuttgart there’ll be 6,000. In Milan, 8,000 Pumpkinheads eagerly await the arrival of the tour and finally – the  ultimate mayhem in Prague with 12,000 tickets sold as well as in Madrid where, believe it or not, 14,000 Spanish Pumpkinheads will gather for this special show.

The news doesn’t stop there. The band, whilst busy in their rehearsal room have also written and recorded an exclusive song together. The aptly titled track ‘Pumpkins United‘ blends everything that has made this band world-famous and a true trailblazer of an own sub genre: power guitar riffs, three-part guitar solos, double bass thunderstorms, and melodic choruses soaring above all else. The track is also performed by all three singers of the band’s history – a dream hardly anyone thought would come true and as a thank you to all fans for a quarter of a century of HELLOWEEN mania and decades of loyalty, ‘Pumpkins United‘ will be available via  helloween.org from October 13 as a FREE DOWNLOAD!
