Dark Tranquillity: premieres "Uniformity" music video on Metal Hammer UK
Sweden's DARK TRANQUILLITY will release their new album "Construct" on May 27th in Europe via Century Media Records. In anticipation of this release, the band has now teamed up with Metal Hammer UK to launch the video for the new Single "Uniformity". This video-clip was produced and directed by Revolver Film Company and Patric Ullaeus, who previously made the videos for In Flames, Hammerfall and Lacuna Coil. To watch "Uniformity", please click HERE!
The band comments about the video for "Uniformity": After the introspective "For broken words" and the uptempo riffing of "The science of noise", it's time to showcase the more anthemic aspects of the new album with the song "Uniformity". In contrast to the more experimental promo videos we made last year, we wanted the "Uniformity" clip to be an intimate and genuine performance video. Nothing but the music itself and the band members playing in the rehearsal room. For this, we hired renowned director Patric Ullaeus, and we're very happy to share the result with you. Stand up and be counted!
