OUT NOW: Our cover of Queen's "The Prophet's Song" - AND our very first official rehearsal *space* video…
Just in time for our very first headline UK tour, we’ve decided to release our cover version of legendary Queen’s "The Prophet’s Song" digitally — a befitting tribute (we hope) to the incredible rock music legacy of Britain, and a mighty epic and mysterious tune!
🎶 Check it out on Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2py9ypL
🎶 ...and Apple Music: https://apple.co/2FW8BSd
Or of course on the music service of your choice.
We can’t wait to play this song, and many others, live for you during our very first UK tour in just a few days!

We’ve had some proper laughs making a rehearsal *space* video for this song! Thanks to a bit of technology you can, for the very first time, see what we see when we’re “in the zone” (and perhaps not entirely sober). Merlin and Ivo kept zapping in and out of reality, though — presumably to the far reaches of alternate universes, on a quest for inspiration for our next album...
The beautiful cover art for the single was created by immensely talented Celtic Botan from Brazil! We shall buy her a Caipirinha or two when we head over there in May. Check out her other work at http://instagram.com/celticbotan!
🇮🇹 Italia! We just can’t get enough of you, so we’re visiting on 28 April for the free (!) Insubria festival in Marcallo con Casone near Milan. This should be a fantastic night and we can’t wait to see you there!

🇧🇷 Brazil! Making this happen within the first year of our #ThisIsTheSound tour has been at the top of our wish list right from the start. And we just about managed! We will be joining the mighty Therion this coming May in Belo Horizonte, Rio De Janeiro and São Paulo, and we cannot wait to see you all there. It’s been way too long!

We are very happy to announce we will be headlining the Milady Metal Festival on the 26th of May at Arci Tom in Mantova, Italy.
Last year we've had an amazing time there. A proper Italian welcome! Great people, great atmosphere. Food, wine and good music. We can't wait to see you all again this time around.

We are beyond excited to announce our first headline tour visiting Ireland, Scotland and England!
These are some of the most beautiful places in the world, and we feel a special connection to each of them. Ireland is Anna’s second homeland, and Merlin’s year is never complete without his pilgrimage to the highlands and Isles - that’s where they produce our favourite drink too! And of course Britain is home to some of the most important places in rock music history. It is about time that we bring our music over for an extended visit, after the incredible welcome we received at our first show in London last year!
We are also very much looking forward to sharing the stage with none other than DIAMOND BLACK, the brand new band founded by Ben Christo (Sisters Of Mercy)! Check out their fantastic new single here: https://youtu.be/0DD0WJR7ri4. “Crushing riffs, mesmerizing electronica & cinematic choruses, telling tales of desire, decadence & devotion” - sounds just about right. These will be some truly magical nights - we can’t wait to rock out with you all!
+ DIAMOND BLACK*
