Amorphis have released a video for their brand new track Wrong Direction.

The song has been taken from the band’s upcoming album Queen Of Time, which is set to arrive on May 18 via Nuclear Blast. The Finnish outfit previously shared a lyric video for The Bee.

Lead guitarist Esa Holopainen says: “I guess Queen Of Time turned out as a massive surprise to all of us. During the rehearsing and pre-production we didn't have any idea that producer Jens Bogren had this huge picture inside of his head about the landscape of the album. 

“It's a very natural continuation to Under The Red Cloud but with steroids. The songs are more aggressive but there's more dynamics, harmonies and orchestral arrangements present. 

“The result is Amorphis as something you've never heard before! Essentially, working with Jens worked really well. As a person he is very similar to us – we share the same kind of weird humour and we all like to work hard.”

Amorphis will head out on tour from next month, with a run of dates across Europe and Japan, followed by shows in North America with Dark Tranquillity, Moonspell and Omnium Gathering.
