At The Gates have premiered a video for their new track Daggers Of Black Haze.

It’s the latest single taken from the band’s upcoming album To Drink From The Night Itself, which is set to arrive on May 18 via Century Media Records. The Gothenburg-based outfit previously revealed the title track (opens in new tab) and A Stare Bound In Stone (opens in new tab).

Frontman Tomas Lindberg says: “Daggers Of Black Haze represents the more progressive side of the new record. It has a lot of reference-points to our early back catalogue, both style wise, and the emotional setting. It is desperate and urgent, but still melancholic and epic. 

“It is conceptually one of the cornerstones of the album – driving home the point of the need for a war on apathy and the populistic forces that takes advantage of it. 

“This is a fight against the abyss. A beacon for the importance of real art, real forms of expression, and importance of our understanding of our mutual cultural history.”

The video was directed by Costin Chioreanu, with Lindberg saying it's “full of symbolism and heavy on the conceptual side.”

He adds: “Costin displays the war for art and the importance of standing up to the oppressive powers and paradigms with his film. 

“It is beautiful, striking, melancholic and I am very happy to see his vision of my concept.”

At The Gates will head out on tour later this week in support of the new album. Find further details below.
