Swedish melodic death metal pioneers AT THE GATES continue to promote their most recent studio album The Nightmare Of Being by launching a new music video for the track “Garden Of Cyrus” today. Watch the video, which was created by long-time collaborator Costin Chioreanu / Twilight13Media, HERE.
“For our latest video, “Garden Of Cyrus”, we have once again chosen to work with our long-time partner Costin Chioreanu. And I think it is safe to say that this time he has truly outdone himself! It is a different song, at least in death metal terms, and of course it needed a different idea for the video. Once again, we let Costin do his own interpretation of the music and the lyrics, and he has taken us on a real psychedelic journey with this one. I think this is the song on our latest album “The Nightmare Of Being” that raised the most eyebrows in the metal community. And I am proud that we as a band can still surprise people, adding another dimension to our sound, without losing the essence of what AT THE GATES is,” states AT THE GATES vocalist Tomas Lindberg Redant about the video.
The video supports the recent announcement of a massive tour package featuring In Flames, AT THE GATES, Imminence and Orbit Culture, which runs from November 12th to December 17th throughout Europe.
Tomas Lindberg Redant adds about the upcoming tour, “We are very excited about finally, being able to play in front of our European fans in support of our latest album “The Nightmare Of Being”. This time we will hit the road with our long-time friends In Flames. It’s such a weird fact that we have actually never toured together, although we are from the same town! So this will be a great opportunity to experience “The Gothenburg sound”, and it is awesome to be part of such a strong package. We can´t wait to get out there again!”
Before AT THE GATES hit the road in Europe, they will be on tour for a special “Slaughter Of The Soul” anniversary run in North America. See below for more details of the band’s upcoming festival dates and North American headline tour.
