AVATARIUM have released a brand new music video!
The new music video, for the track The Starless Sleep, is taken from the band’s upcoming new album Hurricanes and Halos which is set for release this week! The new video was shot in Stockholm and directed by Johan Bååth, who already produced Pearls And Coffins for the band’s previous album. Speaking about the new song and video, guitarist Marcus Jidell says, “I love all the songs on the new album and I’m very proud of what we accomplished. But if I had to choose a favourite track with a gun to my head, I’d pick The Starless Sleep, because that song has so much 60’s vibe in it, but still sounds like nothing I ever heard before. I think that song really has all the ingredients that makes a great AVATARIUM song. It’s dark and poetic but with a warm, organic and heavy sound. AVATARIUM never sounded better then this.”
