SOILWORK's new album is the first to feature guitarist Peter Wichers since his return to the band in 2008, as well as the studio debut with axeman Sylvain Coudret, who also joined in 2008.
SOILWORK is working on a music video for the song "Deliverance Is Mine", to be directed by Ivan Colic (EX DEO, TYPE O NEGATIVE, UNLEASHED) and produced by Stanimir "Staca" Lukic (MOONSPELL, KAMELOT, DEATHSTARS, TYPE O NEGATIVE).
Commented the band: "Our new video, 'Deliverance Is Mine', will be the follow-up to 2003's CGI animated masterpiece 'Light The Torch'. We've always loved that clip and it's really exciting to be able to give it a sequel!"
