EVERGREY Kick Off European Tour, Starting September 16!
Brand New Animated Video for Soaring Single “Save Us” Unveiled
New Album, A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament), Out NOW!
Dark melodic metal masters EVERGREY commenced a new era with their thirteenth studio album, A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament), released via Napalm Records this past spring – demonstrating once again that their musical force and sophistication knows no limits.
Following the release of their meticulous latest production, they now bestow another artistic offering upon us with a new animated music video for “Save Us”, the first single off of A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament). Unifying heavy prog and melancholic beauty with astounding visual storytelling, EVERGREY offers a flawless performance on all possible levels.
In celebration of their latest album, EVERGREY will embark on an extensive tour throughout Europe this month, sharing their technical riffs, dramatic synths and vocal intensity live on the stages of the biggest European metropolises. The tour kicks off on September 16 in Eindhoven, NL, and comes to an end in Paris, FR, on October 23. Tickets are available HERE.
“We are FINALLY going on tour again! Finally coming to see all of our listeners and friends across Europe and the UK!
Thanks so much for sticking by us through these last couple of years! You have proven that you are as eager to see us as we are to see you as the ticket sales are great! So for those of you who didn’t get your tickets yet, it’s time! Don’t be left standing on the outside!
See you very soon!
Tom, Jonas, Rik, Henrik & Johan!”
Tom S. Englund on “Save Us”:
“’Save Us” is about us. It’s about you and I. It’s about how I see our minds becoming hostages in a world where painting optimal portraits of ourselves is more important than being who we really are. It’s about my observation of watching people around me who are feeling that they’re not good enough for the world, or for themselves. I’m afraid we’re lost, and I think we need to help each other to find our way back to what is important, to rediscover a true sense of self. As we, as artists, also contribute to content and social media as a livelihood, it’s about the paradox of being caught in a world which is hard to free yourself from. I can only wish that our music brings some balance to that equation.”

Gothenburg’s finest export of darkness, EVERGREY, enters an astonishing new chapter in the band’s history with their thirteenth studio album and Napalm Records debut, A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament), out now. This overwhelming journey through progressive heaviness and searing emotionality is repeatedly accented by sonic melancholy and gripping lyrics – leaving the listener speechless and re-cementing the Swedish five-piece at the top of the scene without a shadow of a doubt!
A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament) is a striking testament to the fact that while the Swedish five-piece doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone at this point, they still impressively showcase that, after over 25 years of existence, their creativity sees no bounds – dropping yet another sensation within their impressive catalog!
