Swallow The Sun launch Light lyric video

Swallow The Sun have launched a lyric video for their track Abandoned By The Light.

It features on their upcoming triple album Songs From The North I, II & III, out on November 13 via Century Media. The Finnish outfit previously released Pray For The Winds To Come and Heartstrings Shattering from the ambitious studio outing.

Guitarist Juha Raivio said: “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 is available to pre-order and the group will head out on a European tour later this month.
