Swedish metallers Amaranthe have released a new single “Outer Dimensions“. The track is the third single from the band’s upcoming album, “The Catalyst”, set for release on February 23, 2024, via Nuclear Blast Records.
Amaranthe‘s Olof Mörck states: “Dimensions and galaxies collide in our latest single ‘Outer Dimensions’, which takes you on a journey from the introspective and obscure, all the way to a sparkling cosmos of an epic chorus! We feel that it showcases The Catalyst’s diversity, all in one track while remaining very recognizably Amaranthe. The song is masterfully counterpointed by a tour de force of a video, directed by long-time collaborator Patric Ullaeus – so let us bring you the furthest reaches of your imagination with ‘Outer Dimensions’ soon!”
“The Catalyst” will be available digitally and in different physical formats including CD, vinyl, a 2CD special edition and a band exclusive vinyl that will come with a signed poster. Pre-save or pre-order your format of choice here.
“The Catalyst” is the most conceptually coherent piece of work in Amaranthe’s storied history. Dedicated to notions of transformation and revelation, it delves deeper than any previous album, as Olof Mörck explains: “We’ve done these things before, but we’ve never been as theatrical as we have this time,” Mörck grins. “In fact, we all questioned whether we went too far this time, but I also figured that this band was always this way. Literally, the first seconds of our first video was a big explosion! But yes, The Catalyst is more theatrical than ever. We’ve never really been symphonic or orchestral before, but this time we just thought why not? Because we can! The key to this album is that we let go of the boundaries and decided to do something even more adventurous.“
