Tribulation Premiere “The Lament” Music Video

Tribulation have premiered a new video for their new song “The Lament.” This song is from the band’s new album “Down Below,” which will be released on January 26.

The band commented:

“We always plant strange seeds, seeds that when fully grown and ripened have taken their own often unexpected twists and turns. When working with this video we got to share that process with someone else who is also planting strange seeds.

Director and producer Robert Piel approached us and wanted to make a collaboration, which was something that we gladly accepted after seeing his previous work and after seeing how well we got along and how our cinematic references really overlapped.

It’s rare that you find people who have that creative spark that lacks in most of us and the discipline to fully get the job done. Robert and his entire crew had that! They all put a lot of effort and work into this and we all gladly endured the long and cold German nights. We hope you all enjoy our artistic amalgamation!”

“Down Below” Track Listing:

01. “The Lament”
02. “Nightbound”
03. “Lady Death”
04. “Subterranea”
05. “Purgatorio”
06. “Cries From The Underworld”
07. “Lacrimosa”
08. “The World”
09. “Here Be Dragons”
10. “Come, Become, To Be” (bonus track)

On another note, before “Down Below” comes out a new 7″ EP titled “Lady Death” will be released on December 22. That effort will come with two songs including “Lady Death” and a B-side called “Skärselden”.

The band said the following about “Down Below”:

“More than one year has passed since we did the last tour of ‘The Children Of The Night.’ During this long period of silence an intense creative process has taken place, and today we are proud to announce that our new album, ‘Down Below‘ is recorded and ready to be released. It contains some elements from all our previous releases but is also taking a step into uncharted waters.

We would like to thank our producer and friend, Martin Ehrencrona, for the excellent time in Studio Cobra. We are very pleased with the results! Also, big thanks to the amazing Anna von Hausswolff who contributed with her beautiful and awe-inspiring vocal landscapes on one of the album songs as well as another piece that serves as B-side on the forthcoming ‘Lady Death‘ EP. We salute you both!

Now, we are eager to spread our wings again and embark on a new journey across the world. The starting point will be Europe and the 12 th of January marks the first day of a tour together with Arch Enemy. Later in March we will travel further east and south of the continent together with Insomnium. We are all very much looking forward to what is to come!”

Tribulation Plan To Release New Album In January, Offer Brief Update

Tribulation have revealed that they are planning to release their new album in January. They shared the following update on the effort:

“After tracking all the drums in the classic Soundtrade Studios we are now residing in Studio Cobra. It is a strange and wicked brew that we are currently concocting together with Martin Ehrencrona. 2018 will see the Vampyre return in a new form to usher in a new era of ventures and audible gloominess.”

Tribulation Part Ways With Jakob Ljungberg

Tribulation have parted ways with drummer Jakob Ljungberg. You can see statements from the band and Ljungberg below.


“As the summer in the year of their lord 2017 draws near and the world in the north is again fully starting to wake from its slumber we, on the other hand, are forced to face an inevitable end in the departure of our drummer Jakob Ljungberg who has decided to leave the band.

We have spent the last five years together through pain to heaven, in chaos to bliss! It’s been such a strange, wonderful, tiring and inspiring time and we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this time the most important in the history of the band. We surely couldn’t have done it without you.

We were like brothers even before the time of Tribulation and we certainly will be in the time after! Make sure to check out Jakob’s unique and most excellent band Second Sun where he sings and plays guitar!”


”It is with a heavy heart that I leave Tribulation. These last years have been among the best in my life, but they wore me out and now I have to continue life on different paths.

Thanks to everyone involved – you made this journey spectacular, thanks to everyone that came up and said hi – it meant the world to me, thanks to everyone who believed in me – you made me believe in myself. Jonathan, Adam and Johannes. I love you.
“The end of nights we tried to die – this is the end.”

The band are expected to announce a replacement soon.
