Von Hertzen Brothers have released a lyric video for their track Long Lost Sailor exclusively with Prog.

The song features on the band’s latest album War Is Over, which launched in November via Music Theories Recordings/Mascot Label Group.

Kie Von Hertzen tells Prog: “The idea was to bring a new rhythm to our repertoire of grooves. We tried to bring a feverish western movie like atmosphere to the song that combines Morricone sounds with something from The Shadows. Also hints of Nick Kershaw and The Cult – Sonic Temple era – can be heard in the soundscape.

“When Mikko started working on the lyrics, the cowboy theme turned into a sailor theme.”

The band have scheduled a series of live shows across Finland for later this year in support of the new album. Find further details below.
