"We will start creating new songs during spring and summer(2017), and will head to the studio during fall. The album will be our tenth studio album, which is also quite a milestone. It seems that after the studio I will have some time to get my back better somehow, possibly an operation if all the other options have been tried out." - Jaska Raatikainen source: https://www.facebook.com/JaskaRaatikainenCOBHC/posts/1367481549977549 So obviously after the 20 years anniversary tour in april/march and after the summer festivals, and in between, they want to write and record new songs. So we can expect a new album between late 2017 and early 2018. This pretty much confirms tenth studio record.
