Swallow The Sun issue Heartstrings lyric video

Swallow The Sun have released a lyric video for their track Heartstrings Shattering.

It’s taken from upcoming triple album Songs From The North I, II & III, which is out on November 13 via Century Media.

The Finnish band’s mainman Juha Raivio says: “Making a triple album in this godforsaken digital and modern day and age – many will say it’s madness. I say it is to bring worth, heart and respect back into the music and to the album format where it belongs.”

Songs From The North I, II & III will be available as special edition 3CD box, a limited deluxe edition 5LP+3CD box and as digital album.

The band launch a European tour in Berlin on November 26.
