EPICA VOCALIST SIMONE SIMONS RELEASES MUSIC VIDEO

FOR NEW SOLO TRACK "R.E.D."

 

Simone Simons, will release her debut solo album, Vermillion, on August 23.

The album is a collaboration with Ayreon mastermind Arjen Lucassen.

 

A message states: "'R.E.D.' deals with the rise of artificial intelligence, imagining a future where the creation begins to outpace the creator. It reflects on the AI's growing self-awareness and its unfulfilled desire to experience emotions, something that its synthetic nature makes impossible to ever realize.

 

The song also looks at the double-edged nature of technological advancements and the profound existential questions that are becoming ever more important to address."

HIGHLY SUSPECT NEW SINGLE 

"THE 8th OF OCTOBER (TO AUGUST 17th)"

 

The track comes from the band’s forthcoming LP As Above, So Below that will be released on July 19th. 

 

“When I was first writing the riff to our song ‘The 8th of October (to August 17th)’ during a sound check in Bristol England, I never could have imagined what it would become,” says frontman Johnny Stevens.

“I never could have predicted the end result but the one thing I knew is it was a very special thing happening.”

SEETHER TO RELEASE THE SURFACE SEEMS SO FAR ALBUM IN SEPTEMBER; "JUDAS MIND" VIDEO OUT NOW

 

Rock music stalwarts, Seether, are set to unleash their ninth studio album, The Surface Seems So Far, this fall, continuing their legacy as champions of raw emotion in a landscape dominated by fleeting trends and manufactured sounds. The first single off the unapologetically aggressive 11-track collection, due out September 20 via Fantasy Records, is the blistering album opener, "Judas Mind".

 

'Judas Mind' is a song about reaching an understanding that there are bad actors in our lives that are trying to force an outcome for us that we don’t see as our destiny,” shares frontman and songwriter, Shaun Morgan. “It’s about rising up against people who have a vision for you that you don’t share.”

CHARLOTTE WESSELS JOINED BY EPICA'S SIMONE SIMONS FOR "DOPAMINE" 

 

Promising a deeply immersive and evocative experience, the two Dutch symphonic metal legends guide listeners through the emotional landscape of SSRI-induced numbness. The Obsession showcases Wessels' most mature work to date, blending progressive and heavier soundscapes with catchy elements.

 

Charlotte Wessels on “Dopamine”: “Lyrically, 'Dopamine' deals with SSRI induced numbness that I experienced a few years ago when I was on Sertraline, a type of antidepressant. While the medication was really helpful, there were so many side effects that I’d never heard of. This song deals with some of them, and while it feels vulnerable to expose the experience, I hope it helps in breaking down the shame and taboo around the topic.

 

Simone reached out to me as I was first opening up about this in an interview, and when the first version of 'Dopamine' dropped on Patreon (because of course we’re each other's patrons) she texted how much she liked the song.

So when we were working on the album version it only made sense to ask if she’d sing along on the track. I am so happy she agreed and after all of the shared introspection, it was great fun to let loose wearing pink wigs in ball pits and marshmallow pools for the video recordings. Musically, out of the entire new album, 'Dopamine' went through the biggest transformation. What started out as an EDM demo for a collaboration with a dance duo that never happened, became an acoustic Song Of The Month on Patreon, which then had a massive overhaul when rearranging it with Timo. The new band version is an absolute banger, and the beautiful guest vocals by Simone complete the song.”

Asked about the song’s inspiration, frontman Ian Gillan told Rocks magazine: "Recently, a young journalist asked me how many songs I had written in my life. I replied that the last time my assistant counted, twenty years ago, it was over 500. I felt quite accomplished until she pointed out Dolly Parton's 5,000 songs, calling me a lazy sod.

I couldn't help but agree and wrote down the exchange in my notebook."

Pirate queen Clémentine Delauney herself on “Tonight I’m Alive”: “We stand on the eve of a dark future, with threats, enemies and clouds gathering in every direction. On the edge of this cliff, staring into the void that awaits us, one could flee, one could lose their mind. We, pirates, we dance. We dance in the face of danger and death. We honor life;

we honor our existence. We remember that the purity of our hearts and souls can never be taken away from us.

We remember that in this very moment, we’re alive. Come what may, we’ll dance in the rain.”

SINGLE AND MUSIC VIDEO

“Chasing Sunsets”. The track, which is at once melancholic and upbeat, highlights her inimitable voice and memorable hooks, complemented by a mesmerizing music video.

 

Taken from her first traditional full-length solo album, The Obsession, set to be released on September 20, 2024,

this album is promising a storytelling exploration of fear and liberation. Featuring guest appearances by

Simone Simons of Epica and Alissa White-Gluz of Arch Enemy, it blends catchy elements with progressive and heavier soundscapes, marking the most significant step in Wessels’ solo career.

 

Charlotte Wessels on the new single and official music video: “When I released the initial version of 'Chasing Sunsets' on Patreon, it was an instant favorite, and it grew so much since then as we worked on it for the album, I can’t wait to share this track with the world! There’s an underlying theme of self-preservation and greed in the song that we visualized in the music video. I’ve never felt so much like we’re living in the hunger games where parts of the world continue lavish lifestyles while others suffer complete devastation. We worked with this theme in the music video through an artificial beautiful landscape and styling, all staged in a barren space with burning trees."
