Flat Earth (ex-HIM/Amorphis, etc.) have premiered a new video for their new song “Given Time.” This track is from the band’s debut album “None For One,” which will be released on November 9. Singer Anttoni “Anthony” Pikkarainen (Polanski) commented:

“This one I wrote for Linde when one of his best friends passed away. We had just gotten to a good roll with the band, and then it happened in the very center of it all. It was heartwrenching to see his pain. A half a year later, it was the last song I got to play to my father before he passed.”

Flat Earth (Ex-HIM/Amorphis, Etc.) Premiere “Cyanide” Lyric Video

Flat Earth (ex-HIM/Amorphis, etc.) have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Cyanide.” This track is from the band’s debut album “None For One,” which will be released on November 9. Singer Anttoni “Anthony” Pikkarainen (Polanski) commented:

“I have a strong tendency of creating a picture of a person with a lot of issues in my head who I then try to encourage to change in my lyrics. I’m very likely just processing my own shortcomings in this manner, and I really don’t like telling anyone what to do, but this is what I’ve noticed about my writings. So in this song, I intentionally placed myself out there as well. I tried to be very honest about the way I see the world, to take off some of the weight of doing so much preaching. I thought cyanide is a bit too much for a song title, but it does sum up my ideas quite perfectly.”

The press release said the following about the band:

“Flat Earth is anything but your run-of-the-mill ‘supergroup. The fearsome foursome is an ideal amalgamation of love for music, every bandmember’s unique skillset and battle-tested charisma, completed with a dynamic of a band that has been playing together for aeons.

The audible musical signposts point to the heydays of alternative rock, take a nonchalant bow to the forefathers of all things heavy with a pinch of wistful psychedelia,” the press release continues. “Magnetically melodic, playful, exhilaratingly unconstrained and thoroughly permeated by vocalist Anthony’s passionately melancholic overtones, FLAT EARTH delivers in the same parcel both the beauty and the beast.

“Gas and Niclas’s robust-yet-subtle rhythmic dynamic work pave the perfect runway for Linde’s guitar solos to freewheel and Anthony’s maudlin-yet-contemplative singing that gives the band’s sound a tint of mawkish desperation that sets them apart from any other band you’ve heard.”
