Insomnium share first single off ‘Heart Like A Grave,’ touring


Insomnium‘s upcoming album Heart Like A Grave is one of the albums we just listed among our 20 metal albums we’re anticipating before 2019 ends earlier this week, and today the first single is here. It’s called “Valediction,” and it’s one that falls very much on the “melo” side of “melodeath.” It’s one of two videos off the new album shot by Vesa Ranta and Aapo Lahtela of Kaira Films, and the two videos will form one longer story. Insomnium comments:

When the album theme is to dive deep into the black waters of Finnish melancholy, then Vesa Ranta is truly the right man to visualize the story. Album booklet is crafted from Vesa’s epic landscape photos and these same themes continue in the two videos that we shot at Koli national park. Woods and lakes, sorrow and longing. That’s the heart of Insomnium.

Watch/listen below. The album comes out October 4 via Century Media.

The band also has tons of international tour dates coming up, including a North American tour with Omnium Gatherum and Sevenspires that hits NYC on March 13 at Gramercy Theatre (tickets). They also have a series of release shows in their home country of Finland, and a Europe tour with The Black Dahlia Murder. All dates are listed below.
