The band released a new music video for Illusions which is an all-acoustic track. Watch it here:
Vocalist Timo Mustonen comment:
"I love this song. It’s like a dream; the protagonist is taken away from his depressing mindset and surroundings for a while. The video we made underlines this. He’s sort of out of himself, and sees the world in a different light. It’s the first all-acoustic song we’ve ever made. Because of the concept of the song, and it being a rarity amongst all our songs, we wanted to keep it simplistic. I also like the in-the-middle-of-the-night theme we chose for the video.
The lyrics on this one came to be in an unorthodox manner. Ari hummed in an imaginary language on the demo he made of the song. I then made a transliteration of what I heard into words and sentences in English. This version actually included some phrases you hear in the finished song. We found out it’s a dreamy kind of song immediately, and wanted to keep it that way. Me, Ari and Esa then tweaked the lyrics into a story that fits the album as well."
'Time Is Not On Your Side' album is released on November 22nd by Inverse Records.
