Soen premiere animated video for new track Lotus

Soen have released an animated video for their song Lotus exclusively with Prog.

It’s the title track from their new album, which is set to arrive on February 1.

Soen drummer Martin Lopez tells Prog: “Lotus is a summoning of like-minded people that have reached that turning point in their lives where they have had enough. Enough of meaningless and shallow societies and their expected standards.

“Only once you have liberated yourself from these fake ideals and leave all of that behind, one can be truly free.”

The band recorded Lotus with producer David Castillo and Iñaki Marconi at Ghostward Studios and Studio 6 in 2018, with the new record the first to feature Canadian-born guitarist Cody Ford.

Soen are currently preparing for a European tour with Ghost Iris and Wheel, which will get underway in Oslo on Match 12.
