Austrian symphonic metal unit Visions of Atlantis released their newest single "Melancholy Angel" and the music video for that track today. "Melancholy Angel" is the second single off of their upcoming new album "Pirates" (due out May 13, 2022).
The track represents a new era for the band as this album is described as their most honest and intimate release to date.
The band stated about the upcoming release, "Being a Pirate to us is being fully aware and having our lives in our own hands, living and thinking freely, embracing life as an adventure with all its light and darkness. With the new album we are opening a new era for VISIONS OF ATLANTIS, fully embracing the identity we have been flirting with for several years now - making the music that truly resonates with our souls. We continue our journey taking us through darker waters, heavier storms, where all serves as background for a metaphor about personal growth and spirituality. If 'Wanderers' was more about the bright side of our path, 'Pirates' definitely takes us deeply into shadow work, where we are facing other kinds of monsters along the way!"
"Pirates" will be available in digital format as well as CD, vinyl, and bundles via the Napalm Records online store.
