Epica Debut New Song ‘Storm the Sorrow’ During Netherlands Show
Symphonic Dutch metalers Epica performed a new song titled ‘Storm the Sorrow’ at a show at Metropool in Hengelo, Netherlands on Jan. 12.
The new tune is off of their upcoming record, ‘Requiem For the Indifferent,’ due out March 9 in Europe and March 13 in the U.S. on Nuclear Blast Records. The forthcoming disc is Epica’s fourth studio album and their follow up album to 2009’s ‘Design Your Universe.’
Epica has commented about the meaning behind the new album’s title, saying, “Mankind can no longer stick their head in the sand for the things that are happening around us. There is an enormous tension between different religions and cultures, wars, natural disasters and a huge financial crisis, which is getting out of control.”
The band will head out on a tour throughout Europe beginning in Bochum, Germany on March 16 until April 29, where they wrap up in Paris, France. Check out a fan-filmed video of the debut performance of ‘Storm the Sorrow’ below.
