Kamelot To Release “I Am The Empire – Live From The 013” DVD/Blu-Ray In August

Kamelot will be releasing a new live album/DVD/Blu-ray titled “I Am The Empire – Live From The 013” on August 14. The effort was recorded during the band’s September 14, 2018 show at the 013 in Tilburg, Netherlands. With this news, the group have also released a new live video for “Sacrimony (Angel Of Afterlife)” featuring Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz and Amaranthe’s Elize Ryd.

Tommy Karevik said the following about the new video:

“We can now proudly announce that the first video to be released from the show will be ‘Sacrimony (Angel Of Afterlife)’. The song marks the beginning of a new era as it was one of the main songs on ‘Silverthorn’, the first Kamelot album with me as the singer. Enjoy!”

Thomas Youngblood also added the following about the live release:

“We are pleased beyond words to present our new live album/DVD/Blu-ray ‘I Am The Empire – Live From The 013’. After multiple sold-out events in The Netherlands, it was only fitting to film this event at Tilburg’s famed 013 venue. The icing on the cake was having all the special guests attend this historic night. It was truly divine.”
