AMARANTHE Returning To Studio After Tour

AMARANTHE – the modern metal sextet from Gothenburg, Sweden – announced that they will be returning to North America in support of their new album.  The band will be providing direct support for Within Temptation. The tour begins 9/25 in San Francsico, CA and runs through 10/11 in Worcester, MA.

Guitarist Olof Morck commented on the North American tour:

“We could not be more pleased to announce that we will be supporting Within Temptation on their North American tour this fall! I have loved Within Temptation’s music for almost ten years, so it will be an honor to support them. But most of all, we can’t wait to see our amazing American fans again, and make a bunch of new ones!”

The band has confirmed an autumn 2014 release date for their new studio album via Spinefarm Records; as yet untitled, this latest outing will be the follow-up to Amaranthe (2011, now gold in Sweden) and The Nexus (2013). These two releases, which defined the band’s approach through their signature blend of musical styles and voices, caused an international stir right from the start; not only did The Nexus top the rock chart in Sweden, but it went straight to # 1 on the US iTunes Metal Chart as well, whist the videos (from both albums) have continued to clock up millions of views.

The success of these records saw AMARANTHE  playing to audiences all over the world, and now – following shows across Europe, including an appearance at the Bandit Awards in Stockholm where one of the band’s three singers, Elize Ryd, received the ‘Rock n’ Role Model’ Award – the six will head back into the studio.

AMARANTHE are currently on tour in Europe.  A complete list of dates and links to purchase tickets can be found HERE.

AMARANTHE Unveils Mechanical Illusion Video, The Nexus Available March 26 via Spinefarm Records

In the words of AMARANTHE guitarist/composer Olof Mörck,

“To give a second taster of The Nexus is truly exciting! The first single and title track showed a familiar, yet amped-up AMARANTHE. Mechanical Illusion is quite different from what people have heard from us so far. Probably the heaviest track yet, a dystopian vision steeped in a darkened futuristic atmosphere, combined with a mega-catchy chorus that is likely to ring in your head for days. Brace yourselves, the illusion is upon us!” 

AMARANTHE recently released their new music video for the title track, The Nexus, which has racked up an impressive 916,000 views in just one month. The video is available now at this link. The video was directed by Patric Ullaeus, who has worked with names such as In Flames, Arch Enemy and Dimmu Borgir; he was also responsible for AMARANTHE video for The Hunger, the lead single from the band’s highly successful debut, now at a whopping 3.5 million YouTube views (and counting).

The Nexus was produced by Jacob Hansen (whose credits include Volbeat, Dreamshade & Ginger Wildheart, and who worked on AMARANTHE’s 2011 self-titled debut).
