Atlantic sees the band – Martin Lopez (drums & percussion), Joel Ekelöf (lead vocals), Lars Enok Åhlund (guitars/piano), Cody Lee Ford (lead guitar) and Oleksii Zlatoyar Kobel (bass) working together with an eight-piece orchestra as they reinterpret a host of Soen material and a surprise cover of Slipknot’s Snuff.
«Freedom is not to be taken for granted», explains Lopez of Trials. «Modern society is built to entertain us and keep us passive, forgetting about the important things in life. We have to be aware of what we really value in our lives».
«The great masses are taken advantage of by a few wolves of wealth, many of whom we put in power ourselves or pay monthly subscription fees tC», adds Ekelöf. «Trials talks about the desperation and anger of knowing that society is unfair and that we all contribute to something we’re against just by existing».
Soen have also announced new live dates for Europe in September, including dates in Manchester, Birmingham and London, and North America in December, the latter where the band will be special guests of Katatonia.
«CIt’s a dream come true to finally be able to do an extensive North American tour», enthuses Lopez. «It’s a milestone for any band to tour a continent with such a rich musical history and we are very excited about finally getting to meet our North American audience. See you all there!».
Atlantis will be available as a DVD-CD with bonus footage, a double 12” limited edition vinyl, long form video, digital download and streaming.
