Finnish APOCALYPTICA has issued the following update:
There’s a lot going on in the APOCALYPTICA universe this summer – so it’s about time to give you a full update. Even without an album coming out, there are still new songs to enjoy, elaborate projects to witness, and an exciting Apocalyptica tour production coming up …
As most of you know, Perttu has been playing a beautiful new song during the last tour – it’s called “Psalm” and the band has now decided to release it. On top, Paavo has produced the atmospherically dense clip: filmed back at the Sibelius Academy, where the band once recorded their first album, Paavo took care of everything from direction to post production. “Psalm” is out now on iTunes and the video premieres today – just perfect for Perttu’s birthday tomorrow!
