Soen share video for their brand new single Covenant

Soen

Soen have released a video for their new single Covenant.

It’s been taken from the band’s latest album Lotus, which was released last month.

The promo was directed by RISK and Maxi Muniz and produced by Carolina Sosa.

Speaking about the track, drummer Martin Lopez says: “Sometimes we choose to believe that we live in a well-adjusted society, but more often than not, the truth differs. There are secrets everywhere, concealed carefully behind closed doors. 

“Secrets that hide your despair and feed on your hopelessness, mistreated and misled by the people that are supposed to protect you.

Covenant talks about one's inner strength to fight back. It takes courage for one individual to take a stance, but it is necessary in order to survive.

“The true hero is not who's called so by society's standards, but the one that finds that inner strength and lead others by example.”

Soen previously revealed a run of tour dates in support of Lotus (opens in new tab) – and now they’ve added further shows which will take place throughout August and September.

They’re also expected to announce South American shows in the near future.
