NEWS: Swallow The Sun don’t want to fall asleep…

Death Doom Metal masters Swallow The Sun have released the first live track and video from their upcoming live album and DVD pairing that celebrates their two decade long reign, “20 Years of Gloom, Beauty and Despair – Live in Helsinki”. The song of choice is “Don’t Fall Asleep (Horror, Pt. II)”  with the gravestone marked for 30th July 2021.

We were supposed to play anniversary shows in Europe and North America,” vocalist Mikko Kotamäki recalls. “We started our European tour in Finland in February 2020 and played 10 gigs. Everything got canceled two weeks after that. Luckily, we filmed and recorded our gig in Helsinki. Now, everyone can see it. At the time, we didn’t know the footage or recordings would be used for this purpose.”

About the song the band comments, “This is the first single from our upcoming live album. ‘Don’t Fall Asleep’ is an old classic from 2007, which was also released as a single from our “Hope” album back then. We played a special fan voted setlist that night in Helsinki. So expect nothing but hits and classics. Enjoy!
