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!”

“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

The band commented:

“Our sixth album is now completely DONE! Last Sunday, a few select press members and music industry professionals got the opportunity to hear our new effort, and the response was overwhelming, fanning our flames of excitement even further!

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!”

Watch Amaranthe’s Elize Ryd & Olof Mörck’s Recent Instagram Live Performance

On April 3, Amaranthe’s Elize Ryd and Olof Mörck played an acoustic set on Instagram Live as part of the #TogetherAtHome series. The series, which is fueled by Global Citizen, was launched in support of the World Health Organization as everyone continues to face the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Amaranthe Begin Recording New Album

Amaranthe have entered the studio to begin the recording process for their new album. The effort is expected to be released later this year.

The band commented:

“By now, some of you know that we will start the recording of our new album today, Monday 16th.

It is an odd feeling to continue operations while large parts of the world is at a lockdown, and the music industry is suffering greater than most other businesses — but we find it extremely important to soldier on, as we refuse to be beaten by this disease. It also means that we are effectively isolating ourselves, as everyone should as much as possible.

We were set to travel to the studio on Sunday 15th, but as the Danish government decided to lock their border with only hours notice, we had to make a very sudden and daring escape from Sweden into Denmark, ending up at an utterly deserted Copenhagen train station about one hour before the lockdown. We were quite literally the only ones making our way INTO the country, while everyone else was trying to get OUT. As you can no doubt imagine, people think we are mad.

Many of you are now in voluntary or involuntary isolation, and we will try our best to entertain you with regular updates from the studio! Even in its early phase, the album is something we feel incredibly strongly about, and we think you will no doubt know what we mean when you get to hear it later this year.

Stay safe, wash your hands, keep your distance from the elderly and the sick — spread the love, not the virus!”

Amaranthe Premiere Music Video For New Song “Do Or Die” Feat. Angela Gossow (Ex-Arch Enemy)

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their new song “Do Or Die.” This track features former Arch Enemy vocalist Angela Gossow.

Gossow commented:

“It was thrilling to join Amaranthe for a more extreme track and shooting a cutting-edge video for it! This is no cozy studio performance, but real ice-cold winds, sewages, cadavers and pouring rain — the reality we live in, the devastating legacy we leave to our future generations. Time to wake up, turn — and bang — some heads! Watch out for these guys and killer lady, they are going to crush you this year with a new album and some heavy touring!!!”

Guitarist Olof Mörck added:

“While Amaranthe’s music is often uplifting, energetic and positive, sooner or later everyone needs to deal with the obvious fact that the world is literally crumbling around us — and it is crumbling fast, thanks to the short sighted abuse of our common Mother Earth! We talked to legendary Angela Gossow of Arch Enemy fame to do an entire package of a video and a song, outside of any normal album cycle, and let our different perspectives on metal collide in a massive explosion; and it resulted in ‘Do Or Die’! Together with Overbeck Media who shot the video, we delivered something really quite special, and Angela brings in a fresh strength to the trademark Amaranthe sound that is sure to resound all across the metal world! Death and fire!”

Amaranthe Premiere Video For Their Cover Of Sabaton’s “82nd All The Way”

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their cover of Sabaton’s “82nd All The Way.” The clip is being released ahead of Amaranthe’s European tour with Sabaton and Apocalyptica, which will kick off this month. Olof Mörck said the following:

“People who are familiar with Amaranthe know that we do not frequently do covers, but there was something quite irresistible about interpreting Sabaton’s ’82nd All The Way’. While being thematically different from most of our songs, musically it made perfect sense, and it was a joy to pick the song apart and put it back together to something classically Amaranthe sounding. So, this is our small tribute to the mighty Swedish war machine that is Sabaton: ’82nd All The Way’!”
