International atmospheric black metal unit Sojourner are back with the new album announcement. On May 8th, they will put out their third studio album, entitled Premonitions. The outing was mixed and mastered by Øystein G. Brun (Borknagar guitarist) at Crosound Studio in Norway. The artwork was done once again by Sebastian Luca. In addition to album details, you can also check out the first single “The Deluge”, accompanied by the official video (directed by Oliver König).
The album will be released in a 4-panel digipak, a double gatefold vinyl in black, a Napalm exclusive yellow & blue colored vinyl, and a Napalm exclusive album cover t-shirt.
Vocalist Emilio Crespo states:
“The Deluge” represents the personal journeys that the members of Sojourner have endured for the past year. A deluge/flood is a devastating event that leaves a trail of destruction in its wake and this is encapsulated in the melancholic lyrics, hard rhythm and blistering leads of the track. We felt that “The Deluge” sets a darker tone and pace for the new album and therefore it was our first choice for the leading single of the new album, Premonitions.
“Due to the fact we are an international band spanning the globe, we decided to emphasize this in our first video by not pursuing one particular style, but telling the story of all the members coming together from their separate paths while mixing in stylized band shots which were all expertly shot and edited by the talented Oliver König.”
Guitarist/keyboardist Mike Lamb adds:
“Scotland has some of the most breathtaking landscapes and is a place we all hold close to our hearts for various reasons. That paired with the fact it was the right fit for “The Deluge” and Sojourner thematically, it was an easy decision to have the Scottish Highlands as the setting of the video.”
