(Joensuu, Finland – May 21, 2021) – Finnish melodic death metal masters INSOMNIUM release their new single “The Reticent” today via Century Media Records. Watch the video, which was directed by renowned videographer Vesa Ranta, HERE and purchase/stream the single HERE.
“The past year has been a difficult one. People have lost their loved ones, jobs and livelihoods. Hope has been replaced by fear, anxiety and uncertainty. We have all been forced to live our lives in isolation, detached both physically and mentally. This song is about all those feelings. An inner dialogue of hope and hopelessness. During this time, music has been a source of comfort and solace. Something to rely on and return to. And while we have become withdrawn and reticent, our music tolls now ever stronger,” states INSOMNIUM guitarist Ville Friman.
After reaching pole position on official Finnish album charts and hitting German Top 10 charts with the acclaimed album Heart Like a Grave in October 2019, INSOMNIUM entertained metal addicts all around the world. With the release, there was definitely no absence of severe headbanging… well, until mid-March 2020 when the good old world abruptly closed its curtains. Now, the band is back with the brand-new track “The Reticent”.
Due to the current pandemic, guitarist Ville Friman unfortunately wasn’t able to join the video shoot.
Starting today an exclusive “The Reticent” shirt and long sleeve design can be ordered HERE.
