Swedish modern metallers SONIC SYNDICATE recently shot a video for their new single, "Burn This City", with director Patric Ullaeus (DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL) of Revolver Film Company.
A photo of Patric with the band can be viewed below.
"Burn This City" marks the recording debut of SONIC SYNDICATE's latest addition, 23-year-old British singer Nathan James Biggs (formerly of THE HOLLOW EARTH THEORY). The song is one of two tracks that were recently recorded at Abyss studios in Pärlby, outside Ludvika, Sweden. "Burn This City" is said to be the more commercial track of the two that is suitable for the radio, while "Rebellion In Nightmare Land" has been described by guitarist Roger Sjunnesson as a more uptempo song that the group's longtime fans can instantly identify with. Both tracks will appear on a new EP, "Rebellion", which will be released on November 6 as part of an all-in-one-package with the group's latest album, "Love And Other Disasters".
The cover artwork for "Rebellion" will be created by Gustavo Savez of Abstrata art.
A new SONIC SYNDICATE album is tentatively due in April/May 2010.
SONIC SYNDICATE, whose sound has thus far revolved around the dual vocals of Richard Sjunnesson and Roland Johansson, announced in March that Roland (who was responsible for the "clean"/melodic singing in the group) had decided to leave the band "due to personal reasons beyond our control."
Roland played his final show with SONIC SYNDICATE on August 29 at the Geuzenpop festival in Enschede, Holland.
"Love And Other Disasters" landed at position No. 15 on the Swedish and No. 36 on the German chart back in September 2008.
