Tarja has released a live video showcasing her performance of Victim Of Ritual from Poland’s Woodstock festival in 2016.

It’s the third single taken from her upcoming album Act II, which will arrive on July 27 via earMUSIC on 2CD digipak, 3LP, DVD, Blu-ray, limited edition mediabook 2CD/2Blu-ray and on digital formats.

Tarja previously launched the tracks Love To Hate and Undertaker. Watch the new video below.

The live package is split into two separate sets – the first was filmed at London’s Metropolis Studios on June 6 last year in front of just 20 competition winners from across Europe.

The second set was recorded on November 29, 2016, at Milan’s Teatro della Luna Allago, and features tracks from all four of Tarja’s solo albums, including InnocenceDie AliveUntil My Last Breath and a cover of Muse track Supremacy.

Other bonus material, including the Victim Of Ritual performance will also be included.

Tarja says: “Act II is not a live video, it is a live art video and you are free to discuss it very controversially – which is exactly what I want. Turn off the lights, volume up and dive into the show!”

Tarja will tour across Europe throughout October.
