AVANTASIA – release new lyric video for the song ‘Starlight’


Having reached #2 a total of three times now, AVANTASIA frontman Tobias Sammet can finally say he has conquered the official German album charts by landing a #1 with his sensational new album „Moonglow“. To celebrate this triumphant success, the elated band leader has released a lyric video for new track, ‘Starlight’. Watch and listen, here: https://youtu.be/woEF06SOc_A

“It’s a really extraordinary feeling, to reach the very top after being only second for such a long time“, says TOBIAS SAMMET. AVANTASIA can now look back on almost 20 years of global success. His previous album „Ghostlights“ hit the charts in more than a dozen countries across the world, including the USA, Canada, UK, Japan and Germany. TOBIAS has worked with the likes of Alice Cooper, Klaus Meine, members of KISS, URIAH HEEP and JUDAS PRIEST, as well as sharing the stage with AEROSMITH, SLASH, SCORPIONS, IRON MAIDEN and DEEP PURPLE. With over a million fans on Facebook, he has played the prestigious Wacken Open Air 10 times in his career, most recently as a headliner. In 2019 the project will be embarking on another world tour that includes dates in Japan, Australia, the Americas, Russia and Europe.

AVANTASIA’s latest opus, “Moonglow“ is a masterpiece in rock, that transports fans on a fantastic journey to another world. Without the pressure of time or obligation, and free from the constraints of the music industry, the singer songwriter barricaded himself in his home studio and worked on new material night and day, until “Moonglow” was finally born.

„It’s beautiful to see how this worked out for me with a sound, for which – according to the opinion of some experts – there is no place in this generic mainstream world. And the best thing is: Fans all around the world love the record and we can kick off our world tour knowing of their support and have lots of fun!“ comments TOBIAS SAMMET about his first #1 in his home country.
