Nightwish have released a live video showcasing their track Devil And The Deep Dark Ocean.

The song, which originally appeared on the band’s second album Oceanborn, will be included on Decades: Live In Buenos Aires – out on December 6 through Nuclear Blast.

The performance was captured at the Argentinian city’s Estadio Malvinas on September 30, 2018, and the package will be released on 2CD Digipak, 3LP, Blu-ray Digibook and BluRay/2CD.

It'll contain a selection of classic cuts from Nightwish’s back catalogue, including End Of All HopeGhost Love ScoreÉlanNemoWish I had An AngelSacrament Of WildernessElvenpath, and Dead Boy’s Poem.

Keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen said: “I didn’t just want to pick out the most successful Nightwish songs for this tour. Instead, I asked myself which songs I would play to somebody who had never heard of our band. 

“At some point during the preparation process, I realised that I was smiling all the time. I remembered the curious, innocent boy writing all of these songs.”

Earlier this week, Nightwish revealed their plans to tour across Europe in late 2020. The band announced a run of 17 shows, kicking off at Oslo’s Spektrum on November 16 and wrapping up with a performance at London’s SSE Arena Wembley on December 18.

The band are expected to be release their new studio album in 2020 which will be their first since 2015’s Endless Forms Most Beautiful.
