Apothesary Premieres "Tempest (Even Tide)" Lyric Video

Apothesary is gearing up to drop sophomore effort "Accept Loss Forever" via rising metal force M-Theory Audio on July 7th.

Ahead of that impending summer release date, today the band has teamed up with us to exclusively premiere a new lyric video for "Tempest (Even Tide)." The clip was created by Tsunami Films and features a guest guitar solo by Bill Hudson (U.D.O., I Am Morbid, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) - check it out below!

Guitarist Clayton Cagle comments on the new video:

"Musically, parts of 'Tempest' date as far back as 2010. Some of those riffs (albeit modified) are actually some of the earliest material I had ever written - which is special to me to reflect on. It was also a chance for Greg and I to write and arrange together; bouncing ideas off of each other in a music composing program. He and I always seem to sync up when we talk about our goals and opinions. And I have always, ALWAYS wanted a giant triplet breakdown with an ominous, tremolo-picked lead.

"Lyrically, this was the last song written for the record. At the time... I was experiencing some things that I didn't know how to handle. There were a lot of emotions that I couldn't make sense of. And because of the way the previous year of my life had unraveled, I was already in a dangerous place.

"I remember sitting in my bed one night, alone, with the substance that I was convinced was the only thing helping me (the same substance later convinced me that I was about to die, but that's another story). I was miserable to the point that I hadn't written anything in weeks but I knew I needed to do something to release that pressure. So I forced myself to pick up my notebook and just started writing down thoughts. The arranged version of that desperate night became 'Tempest.'"

Described by the band as an “ode to suffering,” the emotionally charged “Accept Loss Forever” is a chronicle of the various challenges and difficulties the group has overcome. Pre-orders are available here and the track listing is as follows:
