Rage have released a video for track The Devil Strikes Again.

It’s the title song from the German metal outfit’s forthcoming album, due out on June 10.

Bassist and vocalist Peavy Wagner says: “This is actually related to the song Sent By The Devil from the Black In Mind album of ’95.

“Also the text deals with some evil obsessions that take control over your life more and more to the point when you cannot resist any longer, have a deep look into yourself and you will understand. And of course the composition brings up some reminiscences without just copying.”

Rage have a number of festivals and shows scheduled in Germany in the coming months, followed by appearances at Olenfest in Belgium and Atalaya Rock festival in Spain.

The Devil Strikes Again can be pre-ordered on Nuclear Blast.
