Amaranthe commented:

“We are absolutely crushed, but unfortunately not surprised that we will have to postpone our European tour with Beyond The Black once again. We were so very much looking forward to finally be on stage to play the new Manifest songs for you! However, we feel very hopeful about doing this tour in 2022 instead – let time fly by quickly, and see you again on stage again before you know it!”

Beyond The Black added:

“By rescheduling this tour we believe to create the safe and high quality live experience our fans all over Europe deserve! And be sure: after this hard period of restriction Beyond The Black and Amaranthe will come back even more intense and louder than ever!”

Amaranthe Premiere “BOOM!1” Video

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their song “BOOM!1.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Manifest.” The group commented:

“In a time when everyone seems to have an opinion about absolutely everything our very own motormouth, GG6, reserves his right to help himself to a small arsenal of explosives topped off with a ton or two of dynamite, and watch your opinion go ‘BOOM!1’! Discussions on elections, pandemics and riots has led to increased polarization in today’s society, but our Growl God simply prefers it all at 1000°F. A full-on onslaught of detuned metal with some of the fastest growls to grace today’s scene, ‘BOOM!1’ acts as a sequel to 2018’s ‘GG6’, and it raises the bar on every level — with a video presented in a Tarantino-esque style, sure to be just as entertaining as the song itself! So serve yourself a cold glass of Napalm, and watch your world go ‘BOOM!1’!”

Amaranthe Premiere “Fearless” Video

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their new song “Fearless.” This track is from the band’s new album “Manifest,” which was released today (October 2).

Amaranthe said the following about the new record:

“So, we come to it at last! We are so very proud and happy to finally unveil ‘Manifest’ to the world, an album written with so much pure joy and enthusiasm, and yet very nearly did not see the light of day.

When faced with the decision to record the album despite a worldwide pandemic, the answer was the same as when we canceled tours that were supposed to promote the album: we HAVE to release this album in 2020! As our longtime listeners are well aware of, Amaranthe believes in positive, energetic, and uplifting music, and we feel that such sentiments are more needed than ever before! Easily our most confident and convincing album to date, this is music born out of pure passion and eagerness to create. This is our manifesto, and all our aesthetic aspirations made apparent — this is ‘Manifest’.”

They also added the following about “Fearless”:

“Fear — perhaps the most primal of instincts and most ancient of proclivities, and yet despite all our recent technological marvels our tendency towards fear only grows. Perhaps the great paradox of our time: we have never been materially safer, yet never more exposed to the ills and misfortunes of our truly global civilization. This very primal urge is the pure currency for both political and financial gain, and the more we give in to fear, the more it enslaves us. However, inside each and every one of us, there is also courage, conviction, and determination. It is in the face of adversity that we grow the strongest — so heed your inner warrior, pay homage to bravery — and transform into the ‘Fearless’!”

Amaranthe Premiere “Archangel” Video

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their new song “Archangel.” This track is from the band’s new album “Manifest,” which will be released on October 2.

Amaranthe commented:

“Fire and brimstone! Savor the sweet scent of sulfur as Amaranthe delves deep into Miltonian lore with ‘Archangel’!

An ancient tale of the fall of the angel Lucifer Morningstar was interpreted as a Greek tragedy in John Milton’s seminal ‘Paradise Lost’, and it is from this perspective we tell a brief yet momentous story of greed, betrayal, and overblown pride — an all too familiar and contemporary theme.

Amaranthe’s first collaboration with Poland’s visual grandmasters Grupa13 took us from abandoned and ghastly factory halls in Wrocław to the derelict ruins of Świny Castle among the Polish mountains. Light up your incense, fill your goblet, and delight in a darker shade of Amaranthe!”

Amaranthe Premiere Music Video For New Song “Strong” Featuring Battle Beast’s Noora Louhimo

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their new song “Strong.” This track features Battle Beast’s Noora Louhimo and it will appear on the band’s new album “Manifest,” which is set to be released on October 2. Amaranthe said the following about the song:

“Devil and saint, martyr and sinner, betrayal and loyalty — ‘Strong’ essentially underlines the dualistic nature of what it means to be human. In an increasingly polarized world, we found it incredibly exciting to reach across the metal world, and find collaboration and unity with the phenomenal Noora Louhimo. Even if the world around you is on fire, and if you find yourself at a disadvantage, remember that there is always one part of you that will remain — ‘Strong’.”

Amaranthe Premiere “Viral” Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Manifest”

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their new song “Viral.” This track is from the band’s new album “Manifest,” which will be released on October 2.

The group said the following about the song:

“Finally we can unleash ‘Viral’ upon an unsuspecting world! It is one of the grooviest and downright heaviest songs in Amaranthe’s history — it is the very epitome of what we have always stood for: massive choruses, a thundering rhythm section and a constant will to push our sound forward into the future. ‘Viral’ was prophetically titled before the onset of the current worldwide situation, and so we felt compelled to tie it in lyrically with this. Welcome to a new era of Amaranthe history — welcome to ‘Viral’!”

They also added the following about the album:

“‘Manifest’ is the latest step in the evolution of Amaranthe, and across the board it is the boldest statement: We are here to stay, we are utterly passionate about what we do and we will take no prisoners in our strive for musical excellence! An all-out metal rollercoaster, ‘Manifest’ does not hold back in any regard — from the first second to the last, it is brimful with some of the heaviest Amaranthe riffs to date, soaring and emotional vocals and unrelenting metallic fury. We hope you will enjoy this album as much as we enjoyed making it!”

As tough as it is to be patient, we will play by the rules and move this monster of a tour into 2021. Stay healthy and see you soon!”

Beyond The Black added:

“We couldn’t wait to be finally back on tour since the beginning of the year and are shocked by the current situation not only affecting Beyond The Black but also the whole music industry. Though, we took a courageous decision to (hopefully) create better preconditions. For our fans and especially for the ones who cannot leave the house without concerns and limitations at the moment.”

Amaranthe Cancel North American Tour With Battle Beast & Seven Spires

Amaranthe have cancelled their North American tour with Battle Beast and Seven Spires due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band issued the following statement:

“While the cancellation of our U.S. tour probably doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone, with the COVID-19 situation being far from over with — it is still really devastating for us. We were massively looking forward to visit U.S. soil again after a three-year absence, and judging from the ticket sales, so were you guys — thank you for the support! Obviously, we will be back as soon as we possibly can, so keep your eyes peeled to our sites, and we will be rocking together again before you know it!!”

Amaranthe To Release New Album In August

We can now officially unveil that the album will be out on August 28th, and the entire Amaranthe band and team is smouldering with anticipation to unleash this monster upon an unsuspecting world. Stay tuned for the most monumental and accomplished Amaranthe record to date!”
