Soilwork Premiere “A Whisp Of The Atlantic” Video

Soilwork have premiered a new video for the title track of their new EP “A Whisp Of The Atlantic.“ That effort was officially released today (December 4).

David Andersson commented:

“From the desire of Feverish, the urge of Desperado, the determinism of Death Diviner, the insights and questions of The Nothingness and the Devil and the acceptance and spiritual searching of A Whisp of the Atlantic. The whole song and video sequence is like a slightly different take on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.

It’s all about realizing that we’re all stuck on this rock and that we need to find something more inclusive than religion to get through this together. Because in the end, we’re all outsiders, genetically hunter-gatherers trying to fit in in a world that we created but at the same time wasn’t really made for us.

The overarching theme is liberation from the extremely low level of the social and cultural debate these days, and it starts with the fundamentals and ends with the phenomenological. From liberation into ascension.”

Soilwork To Release New EP “A Whisp Of The Atlantic” In December, Premiere “The Nothingness And The Devil” Video

Soilwork will be releasing a new EP, titled “A Whisp Of The Atlantic,“ on December 4. A video for the effort’s first single, “The Nothingness And The Devil,” can be found below, along with the cover art and track listing:

“A Whisp Of The Atlantic” Track Listing:

01. “A Whisp Of The Atlantic”
02. “Feverish”
03. “Desperado”
04. “Death Diviner”
05. “The Nothingness And The Devil”

Guitarist David Andersson commented:

“From the desire of ‘Feverish‘, the urge of ‘Desperado‘, the determinism of ‘Death Diviner‘, the insights and questions of ‘The Nothingness and the Devil‘ and the acceptance and spiritual searching of ‘A Whisp of the Atlantic‘. The whole song and video sequence is like a slightly different take on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. It’s all about realizing that we’re all stuck on this rock and that we need to find something more inclusive than religion to get through this together.

Because in the end, we’re all outsiders, genetically hunter-gatherers trying to fit in in a world that we created but at the same time wasn’t really made for us. The overarching theme is liberation from the extremely low level of the social and cultural debate these days, and it starts with the fundamentals and ends with the phenomenological. From liberation into ascension.”

He also added the following about the new song:

“‘The Nothingness And The Devil‘ is a song about how the old concept of a patriarchal God doesn’t work anymore, and how everyone with any logic reasoning must accept that we have to create our own deities, if we need them. Or if we don’t, we’ll have to accept the fact that our lives are essentially meaningless unless we are able to find our meaning and make ourselves feel fulfilled.

The video also hints at the emasculation of a male god, and how gender shouldn’t be a factor in any form of religious discourse anymore. Perhaps this is the time to question your beliefs and accept that no God will correct the mess that we all have put ourselves into.”

Soilwork Premiere “Death Diviner” Video

Soilwork have premiered a new video for their new song “Death Diviner.” This track serves as part three of the band’s “Feverish Trinity” trilogy.

Soilwork commented:

“‘Death Diviner‘ is the final installment in the Feverish trilogy, the end of the path that Feverish and Desperado set us upon. The overall theme of these three songs is an attempt to describe the otherworldy, the emotions your body can’t contain and the desperate measures you take when you feel that there is something out there calling for you, something much bigger than you, but you know that if you could reach it, talk to it, you’d feel a sense of belonging for the first time in your life.

Because that’s what we all miss, isn’t it? We all want to belong somewhere, but it never feels right. You always have that itch, that slightly uncomfortable feeling that you could be so much more, if you’d only been somewhere else, with a soulmate who knew everything you’d been through, and never judged any of your actions because it was the only thing you could do at that time.

Death Diviner doesn’t provide the answers. The Feverish Trilogy doesn’t provide the answers. But they provide a ”What if?” that might change your life.”

Soilwork Premiere “Desperado” Video

Soilwork have premiered a new video for their new song “Desperado.” This track is the second in a trilogy of songs that “celebrate the Babylonian Death Goddesses that once made the world a more Feverish and exciting place.” The band commented:

“‘Desperado‘, just like ‘Feverish‘, is a song about how a single emotion can overtake your entire being, and consume you like an almost sentient force. ‘Desperado‘ is about what lies behind and beyond, the places you normally avoid. But they will always be there. ‘Desperado‘ is shock rock and metal mayhem for those of us who long for a way out.”

Soilwork Planning To Release Two New Singles This Year

During an interview with United Rock Nations, Soilwork’s Björn “Speed” Strid revealed that the band are planning to release two new singles this year. He said the following:

“We’ll do a few shows, but this year is pretty much gonna be all about The Night Flight Orchestra, and then next year is gonna be about Soilwork. [I] try to divide, or separate, the album cycles a little bit, or touring cycles, if you will. But there will be some stuff — some shows and some singles that we’re gonna release as well, so people can look forward to that… We released a single in [October] last year. There’s gonna be two more this year.”

Soilwork Premiere Music Video For New Song “Feverish”, Stream New Version Of “Stålfågel” Feat. Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz

Soilwork have premiered a new video for their new song “Feverish.” This track is the first in a trilogy of songs that will be released across the next five months to “celebrate the Babylonian Death Goddesses that once made the world a more Feverish and exciting place.”

Soilwork commented:

“We have all been feverish. We have all sometimes given in to the temperature rising inside of us, being ridden by a ghost that made us do things we didn’t want to do, but it somehow felt good afterwards, like a purging of the mortal organism that confines us.

Some people say that our bodies were originally designed to have a higher temperature. That when humanity first evolved our bodies were constantly feverish, the warmth subduing our control mechanisms and the neuroutic, nervous behavior we seem to be so prone to these days.

And that might be one of the reasons we were able to proliferate and conquer the world. and subdue its natural inhabitants. Perhaps it’s time to let go again, to unleash the fire still burning within us, biding its time and still hoping to one day be able to take over?”

In other news, the group have also released a new version of “Stålfågel” featuring Arch Enemy‘s Alissa White-Gluz:

Soilwork Cancel Controversial Singapore Show Due To Surgery

Soilwork have cancelled their October 29 show in Singapore due to Björn “Speed” Strid needing time to recover from surgery for varicose veins. The concert was previously scheduled to take place in March, but it was postponed after thousands of people signed a petition to get Soilwork and Watain banned from the country due to religious reasons.

Soilwork commented:

“It is with great sadness that we need to inform you, that our scheduled show on Oct 29th will be cancelled. A combination of events has led to this unfortunate decision. Björn recently underwent major surgery for varicose veins in his left leg.

He is still in rehabilitation process and need to do a follow-up appointment at the clinic and is not recommended to travel before Oct 29th. Singaporean laws also make it near impossible for Björn to bring the needed medicines. Since immigration goes through Singapore, as the first show on the tour, we would run the risk of canceling the remaining dates, if Björn can’t bring his medicines. It’s very unfortunate and nothing we take lightly. We are deeply sorry about this.

Please know that Singaporean promoter Street Noise Productions have done everything they can to make this show happen, ever since our March show postponement. We are obviously devastated over their massive financial losses and really hope to make it up to them and also you, our fans. We beg for your understanding and to respect our situation.

We hope to find another opportunity, when circumstances will be different for the band to play in your country. Thanks for your understanding.

The remaining 2019 tour dates in Australia, Japan and Finland will go ahead as planned.

Best regards, Soilwork“
