Ayreon have released video showcasing their track Amazing Flight.

The footage has been taken from the upcoming album Electric Castle Live And Other Tales, which was captured at Ayreon’s four-night stint at Tilburg’s 013 in 2019.

It’ll launch on March 27 through Music Theories Recordings/Mascot Label Group on 3LP/2CD and DVD/Blu-ray.

Speaking about the new video, which features John de Lancie, Simone Simons, John JayCee Cuijpers and Marcela Bovio, Ayreon mastermind Arjen Lucassen says: “Here is the final preview from the Electric Castle live release for you. Are you ready for this Amazing Flight in space? Just watch this cool Hippie dude – me – wipe the floor with that uncool Barbarian! And what a band! 

“Oh, some friendly advice for your parents out there: Please tell your kids not to follow the bad example of this crazy hippie and his naughty water-pipe!”

Ayreon will headline the Saturday evening at this year's XV Night Of The Prog Festival which will take place on July 17 - 19 July 2020 on the festival grounds of the Loreley Amphitheater in St. Goarshausen, Germany.
