Amenra is now streaming their dark music video for their new single "Voor Immer". The video was directed by Andi Weimann, Fabrice Parent, Anton Coene, and Kamiel Doens, and was produced by Jens Vranckx.
"'Voor Immer' ('For Ever') was one of the first songs we have written for De Doorn. We played it for the very first time in 2018 on the city square of Dixmude, West Flanders Belgium. Accompanied by the carillon, its bells a typical instrument from Belgium and the low countries, we connected the earth with the sky. It was initially written for a commemoration ceremony of the ending of the first world war," said vocalist Colin H. van Eeckhout.
"Images of widows and mothers bereft of their sons. Destroyed cities and whom was left to die. Finding strength and courage to rebuild what once was there, without what was theirs.
"The last time we played it live was in Menen, West Flanders Belgium end 2019. That night we gathered and burnt all our unacknowledged loss. Revealing by fire the 20feet high bronze Amenra statue glowing red, a symbol of hope.
"This is a song about finding that hope, the strength to carry on. Its content ever present in the world today."
Amenra will release their Relapse Records debut album De Doorn on June 25. Pre-orders are available here. The band will also stream their 2019 show that van Eeckhout aboved on June 27. Tickets are available here.
