AMORPHIS To Premier “The Wanderer” Video Next WeekFriday, 7th June 2013
Finnish metal giants AMORPHIS will premier the video for “The Wanderer” on Tuesday, June 11. The clip was directed by Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company, who has previously worked with DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL, IN FLAMES, SONIC SYNDICATE and KAMELOT, among others. Several screen shots of the shooting can be viewed below.
Says the band “We’ve had super fun shooting this new video with Patric Ullaeus who did an amazing job, as always! For us, it’s one of our favorite music videos from all the ones we’ve done so far!”
“The Wanderer” comes off AMORPHIS’ eleventh album, Circle which was released on April 19 via Nuclear Blast Records. Production and mixing duties for the follow-up to 2011’s The Beginning Of Times were handled by HYPOCRISY and PAIN mastermind Peter Tägtgren, who has previously worked with such bands as CHILDREN OF BODOM, CELTIC FROST, IMMORTAL and DIMMU BORGIR. The recordings took place at Petrax Studio (NIGHTWISH, CHILDREN OF BODOM, KORPIKLAANI) in Hollola and 5K Studios in Helsinki. The cover artwork was created by Tom Bates (BLEED FROM WITHIN, DEVIL SOLD HIS SOUL) and can be seen below.
Commented AMORPHIS vocalist Tomi Joutsen: “The mystic, androgynous person on the cover represents a spiritual guide. This character was sent from another time and place to help the album’s protagonist find a new path for his life.”
