Dark Tranquillity: releases official promo clip for "In My Absence"
DARK TRANQUILLITY are proud to present the 5th promo video for their latest album "We Are The Void" that came out in early 2010.
The video was filmed by the band themselves on the road, with guitarist Niklas Sundin (cabinfevermedia / adurolabs) taking care of the editing/post production duties. Additional live footage was provided by Anders Björler (The Haunted, At The Gates) and Nikolas Pegler. Check it out HERE!
Niklas Sundin comments the video: "I wanted to create a live video that would capture the energy of our show both from the audience's perspective as well as from the stage. To accomplish this, we headed out on our recent Europe/Russia tours equipped with a GoPro HD camera, which was mounted on various objects (guitar necks, vocal microphone, member's bodies etc.) on most of the shows. Despite probably looking pretty weird for those in the crowd that noticed the little device, we arrived home with a lot of interesting footage, and after a lot of editing we're happy to present the final result: A clip for "In my absence", filled with an energy and closeness out of the ordinary. Enjoy!"
The unstoppable Metal machine from Gothenburg, Sweden already played over 160 shows all over the world to present "We Are The Void" and continue to tour some more exotic places like China, Japan, South Korea, Israel and Turkey (the Close-Up boat trip from Sweden to Finland isn't exotic but the fans behavior can be), as well as another run through the European summer festivals. In fall 2012 they will take a break to focus working on a new album.
