On February 26th, Los Angeles prog-metal outfit REDEMPTION – featuring Nick van Dyk, Ray Alder (FATES WARNING, ENGINE), Sean Andrews, and Chris Quirarte (as well as guitarist Bernie Versailles, who is presently on an indefinite medical hiatus) – will release their sixth full-length, ‘The Art of Loss‘, via Metal Blade Records worldwide!
In anticipation of its release, the band has launched a video for the album’s title track online (featuring guest guitarist Chris Poland). Directed by Brian Cox / Flarelight Films, ‘The Art of Loss‘ video can be viewed below.
Director Brian Cox comments: “It’s very easy to dwell on the past. To stew in pain, wishing you could get someone or something back that you may have lost. But in the end, you will always have yourself, no matter how much things might change. Nobody can ever take that from you and that’s the message I tried to convey with this video.”
REDEMPTION‘s Nick van Dyk (guitars/keyboards) adds: “We’re very excited to have worked with Brian to bring this song to life in this medium. The story of regret, survival, transcendence and the realization that we have the ability to be authors of our own destiny is brought home with the visuals that Brian has directed. Needless to say, it’s also surreal to perform with the great Chris Poland. This video is a great representation of what Redemption stands for, musically and thematically.”
The European CD-edition will be a Euro-exclusive 2-Digipak-CD with an exclusive bonus-CD!
