Finnish folk metal legends Korpiklaani have released the first in a series of track-by-track breakdowns for their upcoming album Manala.  The record is set to be released August 14, 2012 on Nuclear Blast with a North American tour to follow soon after.  Nuclear Blast USA will also be giving away a limited number of guest list spots (not a backstage pass) for the tour.  You can find out more on that right here.

Korpiklaani’s vocalist/guitarist Jonne Järvelä has issued the following statement about the tour:

“Once again we are very excited to come back to North America. It will be the first time we are able to tour on the release of our new record, Manala. We are also very pleased to be having our very good close friends from Moonsorrow, Týr and Metsatöll, so expect a great party with good friends and even better music!”
