Soilwork Premiere “Nous Sommes La Guerre” Music Video

Soilwork have premiered a new video for their new song “Nous Sommes La Guerre.” This track is from the band’s new album “Övergivenheten,” which will be released on August 19.

The group commented:

“‘Nous Sommes la Guerre‘ evolved around a ‘fight or flight’ theme. The song is about internal struggles and confronting your own worst sides. It’s a cry for help in defeating the darkness inside of you and move towards a brighter path.”

Artist Argavilda added:

“The idea is to peel the skin of the narrator to reveal the individual layers and see what makes the individual. All the scarred and murky sides being laid bare the deeper you dig. Crying golden blood because there are no more tears. It is a person soul searching to find answers and exposing themselves to ask for help. My interpretation of the lyrics is intricately connected to being lost and realizing, that you must build yourself up anew and that you cannot do it alone.”
