Sweden-based melodic doom/death metal outfit, OCTOBER TIDE, premiere a new song entitled "Sleepless Sun" that can be experienced in a form of a lyric video. It is the first song to be revealed from the band's 5th full-length album "Winged Waltz", which will be released on April 22nd via Agonia Records. Listen to the song at:
The band has announced a European tour in support of the album, which will take place this fall, together with label-mates Demonical acting as co-headliner. Full list of shows is available below.
Alexander Högbom (vocals) commented on "Winged Waltz": "This is undoubtedly the best and most emotionally charged material October Tide has created, in my opinion. I know how much hard work Fredrik (guitars) has put into making this album and you can really feel the thought behind it all. I almost injured myself physically and was close to pass out a couple of times during the recording of the vocals. I gave it all to match the intense music and those powerful lyrics and I'm very happy with the result".
The successor to "Tunnel Of No Light" (2013) has been recorded, mixed and mastered in Wing Studios (Demonical, Centinex, Diabolical) in Sweden and produced by Sverker Widgren.
