Lithuanian dark metal band JUODVARNIS share another single and video from their performance at MJR Kaukynės XXI½ festival. The band presented their newest album “Nerimo Dienos” (‘Days of Disquiet’) by headlining the main scene of the festival on 28th of August, 2020.
The video shows band playing the last album’s track called “Trys”, which is a cover version of an old song written by Andrius Mamontovas – one of the most popular Lithuanian pop/alternative rock musicians (released in 1998 on album “Šiaurės Naktis. Pusė Penkių.”). It was the only time this cover version was performed live so far. The single can be also found on Spotify, Apple Music and other main streaming platforms.
Band comments: “Even though the last year has highly impacted the cultural life worldwide, we managed to release a new album as well as to present it in a few amazing live shows in Lithuania. We have received a lot of great comments about our interpretation of the song “Trys” and we are really grateful that Andrius gave us permission to re-arrange and record it. This is a very emotional and tearful song which perfectly merges with the feel of other album tracks and closes it.
The ongoing pandemic still limits the opportunities for musicians to meet their fans. At the same time we understand that a lot of our listeners did not have a chance to visit “MJR Kaukynės” festival and experience this song live. Due to this, we decided to share it in a different way – by releasing a new single along with a music video. We hope it will brighten these days of disquiet for you. Stay safe and healthy. Let’s meet in the future shows once this is possible!”
Lithuanian dark metallers JUODVARNIS closed the year 2020 by sharing a video from their performance at MJR Kaukynės XXI½ festival. The band presented their newest album “Nerimo Dienos” (‘Days of Disquiet’) by headlining the main scene of the festival on 28th of August, 2020. The video shows band playing the 2nd track from the new album – “Iš amžių šaknų”.
The band also shares thoughts with their audience about the passing year 2020:
This year will be engraved deep in our memories. We all had to learn to live differently and most common things became almost or completely impossible. But we are able to adapt, endure and move forward.
It has been a unique year for us as a band. ‘Nerimo dienos’ took a lot of work and attention, but it was a magnificent feeling to close this cycle. Never before have we received such great feedback for our work. We are also very happy that in this difficult time we were able to play just a few, but amazing shows. We’d like to share one of those moments with you right now!
We present a live version of ‘Iš amžių šaknų’. Recorded and filmed at MJR XXI½ Festival. Let’s remember that marvelous night!
We wish for the coming year to be lighter and for all your sorrows and hardships to be left behind. We hope to see you soon!
