Frontman Nikita comments: "We were really stoked about our previous invitations to perform at Summer Breeze Open Air in 2011 and 2013 and were also particularly satisfied with those two performances. Therefore, we are now more than proud to announce that we will be celebrating the official 'Finisterre' release show at this year's edition! It has been a long tradition for DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT to attend this great festival in our local Northern Bavarian neighbourhood for more than a decade. This means that we are obviously playing at home in beautiful surroundings and in front of more than 40.000 metalheads. Of course, we have prepared a very special show for this occasion, which you should not miss and we can hardly wait to finally present our new album in full!"

DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT will release their forthcoming album, 'Finisterre' on August 25th, which is exactly one week after SUMMER BREEZE. Therefore, the Franconian band has teamed up with the festival to perform a special album release show with an exclusive premiere of their brand new tracks. As if that wasn't enough, the band will be selling their new full-length exclusively at the Season of Mist stand at SUMMER BREEZE, which means their fans will be able to purchase 'Finisterre' at the festival one week before its official release!

The musical puzzle that adds up to become DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT turns into something more complex – yet also clearer defined on the band's fourth studio album, 'Finisterre'. The original pieces are still in play: the aggressive German directness akin to ENDSTILLE and a penchant for brooding melancholy as embodied by IMPERIUM DEKADENZ. Spiralling psychedelic moments comparable to DEAFHEAVEN and WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM also find their place – as well as a knack for majestic melodies that shows parallels in Swedish black metal spearheaded by MARDUK and DARK FUNERAL.

Yet while DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT are clearly progressing along the lines laid out by their previous acclaimed effort, 'Stellar', the band has found a way to make these pieces fit more seamlessly. 'Finisterre' flows together into a coherent picture that stresses the Germans’ unique approach and sound. This album marks the point where DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT turn their various influences into a work entirely of their own expression despite never trying to cover up their roots. This impressive maturity has been reached through several stages.

Founded in 2009 by guitarist Nikita Kamprad and vocalist Tobias Jaschinsky, DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT garnered early attention with their self-released debut 'Der Weg einer Freiheit' (2009), which quickly sold out and was re-issued with new drum tracks a year later. Following the 'Agonie' EP (2011), their second album 'Unstille' (2012) already cored international acclaim. In the aftermath of this record, co-founding member Tobias left and main songwriter Nikita Kamprad took over his vocal duties.

The frontman was first heard on third full-length 'Stellar' (2015), which saw DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT gaining traction across the pond as well as expanding their European base. Having performed along such diverse acts as WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, NEAERA, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, AMENRA, CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX, and DOWNFALL OF GAIA as well as playing prestigious festivals such as Graspop, Hellfest, Resurrection, Roadburn, Summer Breeze, and Wacken has honed the band’s songwriting skills to razor-sharp precision.

'Finisterre' clearly stands at the apex (for now) of the steep climb that the DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT have taken. This German star is finally shining in full black.
