At The Gates Share “To Drink From The Night Itself” EPK

At The Gates have shared an EPK (electronic press kit) for their new album “To Drink From The Night Itself.“ That effort will be released on May 18.

At The Gates Premiere “Daggers Of Black Haze” Music Video

At The Gates have premiered a new video for their new song “Daggers Of Black Haze.” This track is from the band’s new album, “To Drink From The Night Itself,“ which will be released on May 18.

Frontman Tomas Lindberg commented:

“Daggers of Black Haze” represents the more progressive side of the new record. It has a lot of reference-points to our early back catalogue, both style wise, and the emotional setting. It is desperate and urgent, but still melancholic and epic. It is conceptually one of the cornerstones of the album. Driving home the point of the need for a war on apathy and the populistic forces that takes advantage of it. This is a fight against the abyss. A beacon for the importance of real art, real forms of expression, and importance of our understanding of our mutual cultural history. The video was filmed by Costin Chioreanu once again, and it is full of symbolism and heavy on the conceptual side. Costin displays the war for art and the importance of standing up to the oppressive powers and paradigms with his film. It is beautiful, striking, melancholic and I am very happy to see his vision of my concept.”

At The Gates Premiere “A Stare Bound In Stone” Music Video

At The Gates have premiered a new video for their new song “A Stare Bound In Stone.” This track is from the band’s new album, “To Drink From The Night Itself,“ which will be released on May 18.

Frontman Tomas Lindberg commented:

“”For the second single release of the album, we wanted this menacing stormer, fast, aggressive verses, heavy chorus and an evil mantra of an ending. This, for me, depicts the desperate, urgent mood of the record. I think it could be one of the most aggressive songs we have ever written.

This album is so diverse and includes so much different elements that it is hard to boil down those essences to just one song. This song has a lot of them though; more to come soon.

For the video shoot, we wanted to work with Costin [Chioreanu] on this one, as he is an essential part of this record. We felt that he knew exactly what kind of emotions we wanted to get across, and how to capture them artistically. I see this video as a brilliant complement to the song. Enjoy!”

At The Gates Premiere “To Drink From The Night Itself” Music Video

At The Gates have premiered a new video for the title track to their new album, “To Drink From The Night Itself.“ That effort will be released on May 18.

Frontman Tomas Lindberg commented:

“So, for the first song to present to the public, we chose the title track of the album. Which is also the opening track of the record. To us, this gives a presentation of the attitude of the album: raw, hungry and desperate.

It also gives an introduction to the whole concept of the record. We live through our art, and the whole album deals with the concept of art. Art as a tool either for revolution, or suppression.

To drink from the night itself is just that, a metaphor for living and breathing through art. Of course the concept goes deeper than that, but this song is the heart of the concept, the fierce call to arms so to say.

We are still at war, but this time we are fighting the abyss, the abyss of apathy and oppression. It is an aggressive song, but also contains a lot of the other elements of the band´s sound on this record. Melancholia, desperation and struggle.

For the first video we chose to use Patric Ullaeus again, as he is good at capturing the raw energy of the band playing live. In the video you can also see glimpses of the art used for the cover, so it binds it all together nicely. Enjoy.”
