Acclaimed Viking overlords and modern masters of heavy metal AMON AMARTH have today revealed their brand new, pulverizing single “Put Your Back Into The Oar,” an ode to the epic Viking row.
The standalone single was recorded and mixed in January 2021 at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden with producer Jens Bogren. Released via the band’s own label Victorious Music, the track was exclusively premiered on SiriusXM‘s Liquid Metal yesterday and was subsequently played every hour throughout the day. Find “Put Your Back Into The Oar” on streaming platforms and watch the accompanying music video below.
Band comments: “We’ve been quiet over the last two years, but we’ve been at home in Sweden hard at work behind the scenes.
“Much has been said about fans coming to our shows to have fun and doing the ‘epic Viking row.’ Well we thought it was a good idea to write a
song about it!
“This one is for you, the fans, wherever you are — and may Odin guide you as you row to your destiny in uncharted seas! Enjoy the song and video while we continue to work on a new album. We can’t wait to see all you heathens soon.”
In conjunction with this epic new song, AMON AMARTH has also announced the release of a limited-edition 12-inch picture disc and a range of special merchandise available from the band’s Victorious Merch store and EMP.
