Amaranthe to Release Digital B-Sides Collection
Amaranthe have emerged as an up-and-coming favorite over the last few years, but the band is digging back into their catalog to give some of their new fans a little more insight into their history. The band has put together a B-sides collection titled Breaking Point - B-Sides 2011-2015 that will arrive on Oct. 30.
The disc will only be available digitally and it features acoustic renditions of six songs, plus two additional B-Sides, including the title track. The acoustic cuts include "Hunger," "Afterlife," "Amaranthine," "Burn With Me," "Trinity" and "True." As for the studio cuts, "Splinter In My Soul" joins the "Breaking Point" title track. The band will soon release a video for "True," which initially appeared on their 2014 disc Massive Addictive.
"As some of you know, Amaranthe has recorded quite a few B-sides and bonus tracks throughout the years," guitarist Olof Morck said. "We've always tried to keep the quality high, as something extra for our fans, but until now a lot of these tracks have been hard-to-find rarities, and quite spread out. We are now very excited to release a collection of some of the best B-sides and bonuses: Breaking Point: B-sides 2011-2015. It focuses on some of the best acoustic renditions of fan favorites as well as a couple of originals from the early days! Enjoy this rare and different side of Amaranthe!"
Morck adds of the band's decision to go with "True" as their next single, "With the high-octane energy of singles/videos 'Digital World' and 'Drop Dead Cynical,' we wanted a slightly more mellow third single. The choice fell upon 'True,' which provides a great contrast with its hopeful yet melancholy lyrics and style. To match this with the perfect video, we once again turned to mastermind Patric Ullaeus, and the result is an inspiring and engaging take on how your dreams and visions don't always turn out the way you planned. But instead, there might be something greater than you hoped for down the line, as long as your heart stays true."
