Amaranthe will release a special treat for its fans later this month just in time for Halloween.

The members of Amaranthe announced recently that the band will release a new compilation record for its fans later this month. The record, Breaking Point: B-Sides 2011 – 2015, will be released on Friday, October 30th. While it is a great treat for fans, there is a little trick involved here, too. The eight-track collection will be available online only. It will contain six acoustic renderings of songs featured in previous Amaranthe albums and two fully electric compositions, ‘Breaking Point’ and ‘Splinter in My Soul.’ In regards to the collection’s upcoming release guitarist Olof noted the difficulty in finding the band’s bonus tracks and b-sides. So the band decided to put together a record that would serve as what its members felt would be a good representation of those songs. “As some of you know, AMARANTHE has recorded quite a few b-sides and bonus tracks throughout the years,” he said. “We’ve always tried to keep the quality high, as something extra for our fans, but until now a lot of these tracks have been hard-to-find rarities, and quite spread out. We are now very excited to release a collection of some of the best b-sides and bonuses: Breaking Point: B-sides 2011-2015. It focuses on some of the best acoustic renditions of fan favorites as well as a couple of originals from the early days! Enjoy this rare and different side of AMARANTHE!” The full track listing for the band’s upcoming compilation is noted below.

TRACK LISTING:

1. “Hunger” (Acoustic)
2. “Afterlife” (Acoustic)
3. “Amaranthine” (Acoustic)
4. “Burn With Me” (Acoustic)
5. “Trinity” (Acoustic )
6. “True” (Acoustic)
7. “Breaking Point”
8. “Splinter In My Soul”

Along with the announcement of its upcoming EP, the band also announced that it will premiere its latest video soon. The video will accompany the song ‘True,’ which was included in the band’s 2014 album Massive Addictive. The band will return to the U.S. later this month just ahead of the debut of its upcoming EP for its Massive Collision Tour, which kicks off on October 29th in Atlanta, Georgia.
