OBSCURA releases video for 'Solaris'
OBSCURA will release their new album, “A Valediction”, on November 19 via Nuclear Blast. The album is the follow-up to 2018’s “Diluvium”. The official Mirko Witzki-directed music video for the disc’s first single, “Solaris”, is out now.
Watch “Solaris” below.
OBSCURA founder and mastermind Steffen Kummerer comments: “‘Solaris’ turned out to become one of the band’s shortest and utmost direct compositions featuring all trademarks lots of attitudes and a melodic approach. Flattering guitar work pushing drums and swinging bass lines combined with a relentless vocal performance and ultrasonic leads became easily a highlight of ‘A Valediction’.”
“A Valediction” was mixed and mastered by award-winning producer Fredrik Nordström in Gothenburg, Sweden and thematically deals with final farewells.
Kummerer previously stated about “A Valediction”: “‘A Valediction’ unfolds OBSCURA in its purest form and showcases the band at new heights and offers immediacy with a rather personal touch. We cannot wait to perform this album on stage and celebrate each and every song live with our loyal fans around the globe. This record goes to eleven, so watch out for the first single dropping in July and worldwide tour dates to be announced soon.”
The album, graced by a cover artwork painted by internationally renowned artist Eliran Kantor, will consist of 11 new studio tracks.
