Boasting fresh new members, German modern metallers Venues have uploaded a new (and possibly NSFW for some) music video for their single titled “Rite of Passage” — check out the clip below.
“The thumping and monumental track is very personal — exploring the relationship with one’s father while sonically erupting into a chorus made for arenas,” stated the video’s official reveal.
Venues have also announced their new record, ‘Solace,’ which comes out on August 27th through Arising Empire (also available on limited colored vinyl – pre-order).
“We wanted to be more metal,” the band’s shouter Robin Baumann said. “There were some pop sensibilities of Aspire that we wanted to replace with rather the opposite.” Said debut album, ‘Aspire,’ saw the light of day in 2018 and spawned tracks like “We Are One,” “Fading Away,” “The Epilogue” and more.
“2020 showed all of us how much the band is helping us keep our sanity,” Robin added. “Almost the whole band went through minor or medium crises since the release of our debut. Relationships went sour, things ended and began. In times like these, our second album was the light at the end of the tunnel. Something we all could look forward to. Our music held our heads above water.”
