SOILWORK are set to drop their first studio album in three years, “Övergivenheten“, on August 19 via Nuclear Blast Records. You can check out the record’s latest single, “Nous Sommes La Guerre“, below.

SOILWORK comments: “‘Nous Sommes La Guerre’ evolved around a ‘fight or flight’ theme. The song is about internal struggles and confronting your own worst sides. It’s a cry for help in defeating the darkness inside of you and move towards a brighter path.”

The extraordinary artwork for the new single was created by Argavilda who has a very own view on the band’s latest output. He offers his thoughts about “Nous Sommes La Guerre” and his interpretation of it: “The idea is to peel the skin of the narrator to reveal the individual layers and see what makes the individual. All the scarred and murky sides being laid bare the deeper you dig. Crying golden blood because there are no more tears. It is a person soul searching to find answers and exposing themselves to ask for help. My interpretation of the lyrics is intricately connected to being lost and realizing, that you must build yourself up anew and that you cannot do it alone.”

Musically and lyrically evolved, “Övergivenheten” is described in a press release as SOILWORK‘s “most complex and elaborate album to date which marks a new phase of their career. Not only due to the tremendous effort and time they put in but also the results on the album reflect years of development and experience as a band.”

SOILWORK frontman Björn Strid comments: “The title track of this album just might be the pinnacle of this band’s musical journey — it sums up everything that we’ve ever been about and the sometimes risky musical venture that this band embarked on some 20 years ago. To me, this song is as close to the heart as it gets.”
