Pop-rock band "Brainstorm" will release a new album in May, whereas in July the band will launch a tour of Latvia, "Brainstorm" representative Guna Zucika told LETA.

The band has just released its new single and video "Lantern", the first single from the new album due May 7. The song may be downloaded at "www.eKase.lv".

Six open-air concerts are planned during the "Brainstorm" summer tour of Latvia. The concert in Jelgava is scheduled for July 28, the band will also perform in Ventspils on August 3, Saldus on August 5, Valmiera on August 10, Preili on August 12. The gala concert in Riga's "Skonto" Stadium is scheduled for August 17.

Tickets to the concerts will be available from May 7 at the "www.eKase.lv" website. One ticket will cost LVL 10 and up.
The new album was recorded at "Diarama Studio" in the United States, "Courtyard Studio" in Great Britain, "Ol' Ingrids Place" and "Singu nams" studios in Riga.

The new single "Lantern" is the band's kaleidoscopic view of themselves; the video was created by Kaspars Roga, who visualized the idea of the song with various pictures from the life of the band and its friends.

The first single from the new album is in English, but most of the songs on the new album will be in Latvian.

"Brainstorm's" last album was released in October 2010, it was a compilation of the band's best songs in 2000-2010.
