FORTÍÐ release “Pandemic” video

Icelandic act FORTÍÐ have released a video for a brand-new track titled “Pandemic,” which serves as the second single from the duo’s forthcoming sixth full-length, ‘World Serpent‘ (slated for release on December 11th).

Band member Einar Eldur Thorberg comments: “The lyrics of ‘Pandemic’ were sparked by the news of a virus outbreak in China last winter. In those early days of the epidemic, I did not foresee that this would develop into a global crisis. Therefore ‘Pandemic’ was never meant as a commentary on the current situation. It just hits the mark somewhat accidentally. My lyrics rather revolve around diseases, plagues, and viruses as a universal threat. Tiny microbes, bacteria, and other germs that are invisible to the eye can bring down the biggest and strongest among us humans. This song serves as a reminder that no matter how much we alter this planet to suit our lifestyle, nature can always strike back without mercy and much harder than we care to consider. The supposed anthropocene might just be brutally ended by an age of microbes.
