Video Clip For New Song "Reasons" Issued By Pain Of Salvation

Swedish progressive rock/metal innovators Pain of Salvation released a video clip for the new song "Reasons." The song appears on the much anticipated new studio album "In the Passing Light of Day,' which will be released on Friday the 13th of January, 2017 via longtime label partners InsideOutMusic.

On "Reasons" the band commented: "We are proud to present the second video from our upcoming album 'In the Passing Light of Day.' It's a hard and complex track, but is somehow catchy enough to make people go around humming it hours after they've heard it. I left one of the early demos in my car over the weekend, and the next week I heard my kids hum it while they were playing app games on their phones. Or, as Daniel Bergstrand put it, 'It's awesome - it's so catchy that you can't resist singing it, but it drives you crazy because at the same time you can't grasp the weird rhythms enough to do it right!' hahaha. The video is a bit different too, because I'm in it, but with all my clothes on and not having sex with anyone or even holding severed body parts of any kind. How weird is that? For those who think that's just too meek, I can offer some comfort to that, by revealing that four of us were bleeding after only two or three takes of the video. Who was the one who didn't bleed? That's a mystery for you to solve and discuss. 'Because I hate every motherfucking word you say!'

"Lyrically the song is about the harshest lows of a long-term relationship, but also a dark satire about true and deep loyalty and love - the kind that will not perish in any flame but just come out twice as strong. It's like a long and true friendship - it can withstand a little bit of conflict, dislike, or even hate, every now and then through the year, without going out. At least if the conflicts are shared and mutual, brought out in the open and dealt with with courage and truth. So, at the surface, it may first seem like a lyric about hate, but as you delve deeper into the philosophy of it, and if you pay attention to the small lyrical signs towards the end, you'll understand that it is a story about a strong love."

Inextricably linked to the near fatal illness that band-leader Daniel Gildenlöw spent much of the first half of 2014 recovering from, the album is an altogether darker and more impassioned journey. Taking the hospital bed as a narrative hub, the lyrical and musical themes touch on all the conflicting feelings that run through a person's mind when presented with the prospect of death and the passing of life.

The track list for the album is:

1. On a Tuesday (10:22)
2. Tongue of God (04:53)
3. Meaningless (04:47) (see music video here)
4. Silent Gold (03:23)
5. Full Throttle Tribe (09:05)
6. Reasons (04:45)
7. Angels of Broken Things (06:24)
8. The Taming of a Beast (06:33)
9. If This Is the End (06:03)
10. The Passing Light of Day (15:31)
