Watain: announce video trailer for "ALL THAT MAY BLEED" single and opening of "THE WILD HUNT" world tour
Click HERE to get a first impression of "ALL THAT MAY BLEED", the first single for Watain's new album "The Wild Hunt".
"All that May Bleed shows but one facet of a quite diverse album, but we chose this song as a first glimpse into "The Wild Hunt" because of its bombastic lunacy and white-eyed malevolence which could be said to constitute a main foundation for the album. The lyric is an invitation to sacrificial blood letting, ecstatic zealotry and human sacrifice. The salt of Satan in the wounds of Christ!"
Side B is a track called "Play with the Devil" originally recorded by the Black/Heavy Metal band Taiwaz in 1988, in Watain's hometown Uppsala. Gottfrid Åhman from In Solitude participates on solo guitar in Watain's version. The "ALL THAT MAY BLEED" single will be out June 21st, 2013 in the following formats:
*Black 7" vinyl - limited to 2,000 copies worldwide
*Red 7" vinyl with sticker (only available from www.wolfwear.net) limited to 500 copies worldwide
*7" Picture disc limited to 500 copies worldwide available from www.cmdistro.com and www.wolfwear.net
* Digital Download
WATAIN's upcoming album "The Wild Hunt" will be released August 19th in Europe and August 20th, 2013 in North America by His Master's Noise, via Century Media Records. On the 24th of August, Watain will conduct the grand opening of "The Wild Hunt" world tour in their hometown Uppsala. For those who want to see Watain's infamous live ceremony taken to a new level; this is your chance.
"The plan is to make this concert everything we have ever wanted our concerts to be. In a touring scenario it is impossible to drag along all the horrors and infernal machinery we need for that, but performing in our hometown allows for a much more grandiose and spectacular stage show and performance. Mark our words, this will be one to remember!"
The venue chosen for this night of unchained metal magic is Svandammshallarna, located in the heart of the city. Tickets will be released on Friday the 7th of June.
