In a recent interview, Tony commented on the fact, that the band will be re-recording their first album Ecliptica later this year:
Artwork, recording and release dates are yet to be comfirmed, or if the album will see an international release.TK : [... ]There is also the fact we are about to re-record our first album, Ecliptica later in the year, after a request from our Japanese label . We thought it would be weird but after all, why not? This is something I wanted to do for a while, repeat this album, correct errors, address the album differently, we were novices so we had no idea what we were doing. Some songs have the problem of, for example, that I would be quite unable to sing it now, I already could not sing at the time but I did not care , I knew nothing and it had not crossed my mind that I had to sing live , or even that I could not stay in one place , static, but I had to move and do the show , a nightmare ! This is an opportunity to redo it all and all these factors combined led to this idea, this album, Pariah 's Child .
G: This is a great way for younger discover that Sonata Arctica was in its infancy, indeed!
TK: People are going to hate the idea , it's not cool to rewrite history , repeat something you 've done in the past but it would be closer to a copy that it is possible to . It will change the tone of some songs , change some settings , just a little ! All songs will be recognizable , not like the versions of Wolf & Raven or Letter To Dana I made it a few years ago , there were very different ones ! 8th Commandment , Blank File and all other songs will be as close to the original as possible. The idea is to re-register Ecliptica with what we know now, but we will still have the opportunity to talk about this later I think.
