KAMELOT Releases Video For 'Under Grey Skies' Feat. CHARLOTTE WESSELS Of DELAIN
December 22, 2017
KAMELOT has released a music video for the song "Under Grey Skies", featuring a guest appearance by DELAIN's Charlotte Wessels.
KAMELOT vocalist Tommy Karevik calls "Under Grey Skies" "one of my favorite songs" from the band's latest album, "Haven", and says that the track was written "about the importance of never giving up on yourself or the people around and that you can always make a difference in someone else's life. Sometimes by just believing in them or simply listening to what they have to say."
He adds: "It was very nice singing with Charlotte and her voice fits the song perfectly."
Adds Wessels: "I absolutely adore songs like 'Under Grey Skies' that inspire hope and optimism in the darkest of times. I was proud to be part of the track and even more thrilled that there's a video for the song to share now as well. Add to that the fact that KAMELOT and DELAIN will share the stage again in the U.S. this spring and I'd say there's plenty of things to get excited about!"
KAMELOT guitarist Thomas Youngblood states: "We wanted to release this video as a last 'Haven' Christmas gift to the fans.
"This album has reached so many new heights for us, thanks to the fans and some long and intense touring.
"The next album is almost ready to be unleashed in 2018. Get ready for a monster!!
"We approach the end of the 2017 and the ending of the epic 'Haven' tour. What an amazing time we have had with 'Haven', taking the band to new countries, cities and highest chart placements in the band's history. Debuting at #1 on Billboard's Hard Rock Charts was a stunning reminder that we have the best fans in the world!!
"But wait! We will not leave for the Christmas break without dropping a nice and beautiful Christmas present here for all of you beautiful people! Here is our video for 'Under Grey Skies' featuring Charlotte Wessels from DELAIN. Also appearing on this track is Troy Donockley from NIGHTWISH. Enjoy and see you all on tour in 2018!!!"
KAMELOT recently spent time at a studio in Wolfsburg, Germany putting the finishing touches on its new album with producer Sascha Paeth. The follow-up to "Haven" will be released in early 2018 via Napalm.
Youngblood told Rock Overdose that the band's new material was harkening "back to the 'Ghost Opera' days a bit with 'Haven' elements."
"Haven" sold around 7,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD was made available in May 2015 via Napalm Records as part of an exclusive licensing deal through the band's Kamelot Music LLC.
