TÝR Hits The Beach For New Song & Video "Sunset Shore"

From their first new album in six years.

Tyr is slated to release their first new record in six years titled Hel on March 8, and now you've got at least one good reason to pick it up. Tyr is now streaming their single "Sunset Shore," which of course was filmed on a beach.

"In early January, immediately after spending our holidays in the Faroes, Gunnar and I traveled to Hungary to our bandmates, Tadeusz and Attila, in Budapest. Finally it was time to shoot another video, our first since 2014, and we're very happy to present this one to you!

"The Hungarian film production crew Mihaszna Film arranged the trips, starting from Budapest and going first to the Julian alps in Slovenia. In the fields and rivers of the snowy mountains, we had some amazing scenery for 'overworld' part of the video. A few days later, we traveled on to the caves of Szent-István in northern Hungary, and deep underground we found some dark and gloomy caves to be the perfect backdrop for the underworld part of this video.

"Terji wrote 'Sunset Shore' for our upcoming album, Hel — to be relased on March 8th — and he plays the solo on the album version, but not in this video. We decided it was the perfect opportunity to introduce you all to the amazing talent of Attila Vörös, who recorded his own version of the solo a few days before the video shooting. The lyrics, written by me, are about how the mind can sometimes be a windswept and weatherworn landscape, and how the only thing to do, in spite of hopelessness and despair, is to aim for a better place and to work towards better times.

"We hope you enjoy the result!"

Hel is Tyr's first record to feature Sunwharf drummer Tadeusz Rieckmann and Attila Vörös, who played for both Nevermore and Warrel Dane live.
