a-ha announce new 'Cast In Steel' album + tour for 2016
Earlier this week Side-Line was the very first non-Norwegian news outlet to announce that a-ha had reunited and that this would be announced on March 25th via a press conference in Berln. That press conference at the Norwegian Embassy in Berlin is now finished and just like we reported, a-ha have announced their return to the spotlights.

Present were Paul Savoy, Morten Harket and Magne Furuholmen. The trio also released some specific details during the press conference. A new a-ha album, "Cast In Steel", will be released this fall to be followed by an international tour in 2016. "Cast In Steel" is the follow-up to 2009's "Foot of the Mountain" and will be out September 4th 2015, 3 weeks before the band plays at Rock In Rio in Brazil and 30 years after their first single "Take On Me" reached the number 1 spot around the world.

Surprisingly, it's Alan Tarney, the man who produced a-ha's first 3 albums, which has now produced "Cast In Steel".
