This Friday, September 1st, EPICA will release their long-awaited EP, The Solace System, which includes six brand-new songs, written and recorded during the process of their latest album The Holographic Principle. Today, the band is honored to premiere their new music video for “Immortal Melancholy” exclusively on Billboard – watch the music video here:www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/7948919/epicas-immortal-melancholy-video
Keyboarder Coen Janssen comments: “Enjoy the second part of our animated video-series! In ‘Immortal Melancholy‘ the story continues where we left off with The Solace System. We hope you like it as much as we do! Let’s find out if the Universal Death Squad takes over our universe…!”
The Solace System was recorded, mixed & mastered by team Joost van den Broek and Jacob Hansen. The video clip was produced by anime-master Davide Cilloni. The splendid artwork is once again by the hand of Stefan Heilemann.
Simone Simons (vocalist) comments on the EP: “During the early writing process of The Holographic Principle we found out that we were blessed with a huge amount of songs. The songs that didn’t fit on our album are now available for you on this special EP! I hope you guys will enjoy these songs as much as we do!”
And if this all wasn’t enough, you’ll also be able to purchase the new EP The Solace System together with the CD of their recent studio album The Holographic Principle as a box set! It will be called The Holographic Principle – The Ultimate Edition.
And there are some more good news! Nuclear Blast is going to re-release two ancient albums of EPICA, Design Your Universe and The Divine Conspiracy, on vinyl on August 18th. Each album is available in two different colours.
All these formats are NOW available for pre-order!
