In addition, Season of Mist will re-release 2006's acoustic masterpiece, Acoustic Verses, and to much delight of the fans, another three new albums from the band, the first of which will see a 2020 release. Stay tuned. Regarding the signing, the band comments: "We are absolutely delighted to re-join the Season of Mist ranks. Label representatives let us know about their interest three years ago, and although there has been quite a lot of interest from other parties, we were always positive to the idea of working together with Season of Mist again. We are confident that this is the right partner for the band, and we will work hard to fulfill our joint ambitions in a very exciting time ahead for Green Carnation." Green Carnation from Kristiansand, Norway, was founded as early as 1990. After founding member Tchort joined legends-to-be Emporer and continued in Satyricon and Einherjer, the band was laid to rest until their debut album, A Journey To The End Of The Night came out in 2000. Following a period with line-up changes, 2001 marked the release of the band's epic Light of Day, Day of Darkness. With their albums A Blessing in Disguise (2003) and The Quiet Offspring (2005), Green Carnation shifted towards a more rock orientated style, before they surprised everyone with the stripped-down record Acoustic Verses in 2006. What followed in the same year is perhaps one of the most spectacular DVD recordings metal history. The band played a show in the mountains, under a 30-meter-high dam. Only a year later, Green Carnation disbanded. After the successful return in 2016, the band continued to play shows in 2017 and 2018. In September 2019, the progressive metal act announced that they were going to record their first album in 14 years, in DUB Studio, with producer Endre Kirkesola (Abbath, In Vain), who also produced their classic, Light of Day, Day of Darkness. The new album is expected to be released in the first half of 2020 via Season of Mist.
