After their debut album „This Is U“ (2006) and lots of live shows, e.g
. together with SCORPIONS, DEF LEPPARD, WHITESNAKE and on the March Metal Day Festivals (with NIGHTWISH, EDGUY) HANNIBAL will release their long awaited second album CYBERIA in spring this year.

So it’s no surpise that the band has already toured with TARJA (ex-Nightwish) in beginning of 2012 to pre-promote the band new CYBERIA release. Singer “Hannibal” was also invited by TARJA to perform the hit-song “Phantom Of The Opera” during her shows all over Europe.
