SONATA ARCTICA – release ‘Who Failed The Most’ music video

Today, melodic metal titans SONATA ARCTICA herald the start of the cold season as the group releases their 10th studio album »Talviyö« (“Winter Night”), through Nuclear Blast. To mark the occasion, the Finns have launched a brand new music video for ‘Who Failed The Most,’ which was produced by renowned director Patric Ullaeus (rEvolver Film CompanyDIMMU BORGIRENSLAVEDIN FLAMES etc.). Watch it over on YouTube

Keyboardist Henrik “Henkka” Klingenberg states, “The wait is finally over, now all of you will hear what we’ve been working on for the past year or so as we present our latest album »Talviyö.« It was quite an experience getting this album ready for you guys and for the first time ever, we had some outside help from our very own Mikko Tegelman who produced the album. We focused on playing live this time and I think the album really captures how SONATA ARCTICA sounds like today. It will be a blast to go out and perform this new music alongside selected cuts from our catalogue. See you soon and meanwhile we hope you enjoy the album as much as we did making it.

“It’s also time for the second video of »Talviyö.« ‘Who Failed The Most’ is one of the more approachable songs on the album and we worked with Patric Ullaeus once again to create the video. We took advantage of the nice Finnish summer and shot our performance outside for a change, which turned out quite cool. You’ll probably hear this song throughout the »Talviyö World Tour« that’s starting right now in North America and from there we’ll continue to Europe and the rest of the world. Cheers!”

Additionally, the band is about to embark on a North American tour (w/ KAMELOT and BATTLE BEAST among others). The extensive run, which starts in Margate, FL tonight, will be followed by a string of homeland shows as well as a European headline tour with support coming from EDGE OF PARADISE and TEMPLE BALLS. All dates can be found below.
