Von Hertzen Brothers Working On New Album
Mikko, Kie and Jonne Von Hertzen are working on the follow-up to 2013's Nine Lives with producer Garth Richardson, while Randy Staub will handle mixing duties. The lineup is completed by drummer Mikko Kaakkuriniemi and keyboardist Juha Kuoppala - and frontman Mikko Von Hertzen says he's thrilled to be working with a "thrilling top-of-the-line team."
He says: "For the past five years we've been working hard on building an international setup. Now the collective feeling is that we need to up it a gear and just go for it."
Speaking about the involvement of Richardson, he reports: "From the outset, the idea was to find a producer who has a vision and thus something concrete to offer our music. With Garth, things clicked from the first meeting. What was really encouraging was his enthusiasm for our new material." More.
