Speaking about their new single and the music video, the band comments:
“Poets of the Fall are back again with an imaginative as ever video to their brand new single, Requiem for My Harlequin. It’s an immersive voyage through the fantasy world of the lead character’s mind, with its tricks and illusions, which create the beliefs and thus, the proof by which we tend to swear. The video is yet another stunning work of art by the group, a veritable blast of vivid imagery and humour, touching the deepest recesses of the soul.”
“Requiem For My Harlequin” can be described as a massive power-drama that hurls you into a dizzying carnival ride; a thick metallic power ballad full of crunchy guitars, big symphonic arrangements, and the silky-smooth golden vocals the band is famous for.
As with the band’s previous eight studio albums, Poets of the Fall have gained several #1 spots on the charts, performed worldwide to an enthusiastically loyal international fanbase, and are one of the most internationally successful bands from Finland. Their music videos have hundreds of millions of views on YouTube, streaming numbers reaching over two million plays per month on Spotify alone.
