Witchery have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Welcome, Night.” This song is from the band’s new album, “I Am Legion,” which will be released on November 10.
Patrik Jensen commented:
“On ‘I Am Legion’ we have tried a few things that Witchery never has done before. ‘Welcome, Night’, with its odd timing, atypical arrangement and with riffs that are meant to enhance the vocals/lyrics (and not the other way around as per usual) makes the song probably my favorite track on the album. I like how the lyrics turned out too. They might lead you to think about a certain infamous incident in history, but I chose to place it in ‘the year 1855’ to distance the song from that, yet keeping it in the same Victorian setting. I got a question from a journalist if the lyrics somehow were about ‘the Devil’s footprints’ that happened that specific year. They’re not connected, but I can recommend looking up that particular incident. Pretty interesting. Please enjoy the contribution of our two great friends – Nick Barker’s spoken word and Mike Wead’s solo – in the song as well!”
