Edguy have just returned from the video shoot for "ROBIN HOOD", the opening track from Edguy's forthcoming Album "AGE OF THE JOKER" (release August 26th). Video director Oliver Sommer (Avantasia, Nena, Helloween...) and the band decided to satirize the Errol Flynn version "The Adventures Of Robin Hood". The miniature epic was shot in the forest with a large number of additional actors, starring German TV-comedian Bernhard Hoecker in two different leading roles a.o..

Robin Hood

Tobias says: "When you decide to do things like that of course you have to be aware that you will most likely make a fool out of yourself. We had to wear tights and looked a bit like four idiots and one transvestite. But we have come to a point we don't care so much anymore. We feel like being in a luxury position where the record label gives us a lot of money to waste for really silly things like sneaking through the forest and looking like idiots. The shooting was one of the funniest days in our career, and that means something. Although It was hard work - the rain, the mud, soaking wet tights, angry horses, carriage, a lot of travesty, sword fighting and hurting smile muscles. You gotta check it out!"

The single "Robin Hood" will be out on the August 5th and will be available as download and on green vinyl. The video version of the song was cut down to 5 minutes, but the album version has a running time of more than 8 minutes.

On August 26th Edguy's long anticipated ninth studio album "Age Of The Joker" will hit the stores. Having mainly focused on shows as special guests for the likes of Scorpions, Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne and more in 2010, Edguy are looking forward to finally going out as headliners to bring the full big stage show to cities across Europe once again. Already having confirmed Kottak, featuring legendary Scorpions drummer James Kottak, on vocals and guitars, another support act has now been confirmed for some of the shows: Fullforce, the band around Hammerfall's drummer Anders Johansson and former Hammerfall lead guitarist Stefan Elmgren, who is finally back in the business for the first time after leaving Hammerfall years ago. Fullforce will open the shows in Malmö, Göteborg, Stockholm, Hamburg, Berlin and Essen. Kottak will join the whole tour. Edguy are more than happy to set out on the road again with members of the Scorpions- and Hammerfall-family, both bands with whom Edguy have always had a great relationship!

A few weeks ago a few journalists were given the chance to listen to a couple of songs from the forthcoming new Edguy masterpiece "Age Of The Joker" (in stores on August 26th). Below you can read what the journalists had to say right after the musical journey:

"Soft and heavy, memorable and noble. The "Age Of The Joker" is a really vivid age." Rock Hard (Ger) / Andreas Stappert

"Surprising and renowned moments follow one another. Edguy flip the bird at the Metalworld and record the album they want to. Cool!" - Metal Hammer (Ger) / Marc Halupczok

"Edguy step the Blues - variety is a top priority on "Age Of The Joker".  Heavy (Ger) / Martin Römpp

"A supremely diversified album, top-notch in both fields: high musical aspirations and entertainment." Rock It (Ger) / Andreas Schöwe

"Edguy master the balancing act between aspirations and catchiness with honors. A grand display of fireworks with catchy chorusses, great melodies and exciting details galore. Heavy guitars, excellent vocals and exciting songs make "Age of The Joker" a hit." Legacy (Ger) / Andreas Schulz

"First impression? Amazing! You keep waiting for something that you have heard before, but I just couldn't find anything. Trademarks? Yes! Repetition or copy? No! To sum it up: Amazing album, but I didn't expect anything other than that!" Hardline (Ger) / Jenny Klünder

"It’s time to rock the charts again!“ Scream (Nor) / Anders Odsberg

"A suitable epic mix of Edguy’s power metal roots, contemporary rock choruses and enough experimentation to keep things fresh.“ Powerplay (UK) / Sam Khaneka

"In between two massive epic length tracks, lies a paradise of catchiness. Their experimental parts are skinning, but they took care about proper needs of the fans in accessible songs as well.“ Rock Tribune (BE) / Vera Matthissens

"The "Age of the Joker" album is a really solid, well composed, filled with variations, work. It will most certainly be a highlight of the year for all Heavy Metal fans. Much better than "Tinnitus Sanctus" and with an interesting 80s rock touch. Edguy follows its own way, and this is good.“ Rock Hard (F) / Francois Blanc

"Very different, but very similar to anything they’ve done before. They will surprise you… again.“ Metal Hammer (ES) + The Metal Circus (ES) / Sergi Ramos

"Cool and funny record with Sascha on board. Everybody can expect smash songs from heavy Metal to Folk Medieval Music. This is Edguy that we love. Tobi is a unique metal person!" Spark (CZ) / David Havlena
