“After all those years, Design Your Universe remains one of my all-time favorite Epica albums. I know that the message behind the title song also resonates with a lot our fans because there are so many Design Your Universe related tattoos. The title track and Unleashed are songs that I hold very dear and the memories we made in that time of our career. I am looking forward to go back in time with you all while we play more songs from our Design Your Universe album.

Last year, Epica won a competition organized by The Metropole Orkest, a world-renowned Dutch orchestra, and recorded a rendition of Beyond the Matrix with them, featuring Arjen Lucassen from Ayreon.

The song will be released as a limited-edition vinyl and digital download on October 26th. Visit the official webshop to pre-order the vinyl and bundles.
