Swedish goth rock/metal band Outshine has released their first single of their upcoming album The Awaking which is set for release in May 2022 via Rockshots Records. The single is accompanied by a videoclip and is called Its All Lies. The song is available through all digital platforms.
Its All Lies is the first single Outsine has released that is featured on the fifth full-length album The Awakening. This album was produced by Jimmy Boman & Kenny Boufadene at Studio Meltdown, Sweden, and was recorded and re-recorded numerous times at Grand Recordings, Gothenburg, Sweden between 2015-2019. Final recordings were done in 2020 at Studio Meltdown, Kungsbacka, Sweden. The album follows their four previous LPs since beginning in 2007. With a vision of darkness and melancholy in a visual landscape, their forthcoming album is all about what has happened in the world during pandemic times.
“This Covid-19 era has taken a toll on the music world and showed that in troubling times the ones in power, the elites, don´t care about the common person. The lies, corruption, hidden agendas, and the rise of fascist behaviour from both unknown and known “leaders” that expands anything we´ve seen in decades are influencing and misleading people around the world making them turn on each other. A depraved glorification of the elite that hasn´t the common human being in mind has risen. The pandemic has clearly shown who gains and who doesn’t. The poor and middle-class are getting poorer, the rich insanely rich and the politicians folding to comply to not be targeted.” says band founder, guitarist, and vocalist Jimmy Boman.
Outshine’s new music video for its single It’s All Lies visualizes Boman’s statement. Should we trust mainstream media or political leaders just because they look or behave nice? And if we don´t obey, will they hunt us down?
