Modern Heavy Symphonic Metal leaders KAMELOT, recently released their most introspective, uplifting, vital release to date – their first full-length in five years, “The Awakening”. The album, which debuted at #2 on the US Current Hard Music Albums chart and #27 on the Current Album Sales chart, connected with fans and critics alike – touted by many as the best late-era KAMELOT release to date!
The band has revealed an exciting new live music video for the new fan-favorite anthem “New Babylon”, featuring none other than the enchanting Melissa Bonny (AD INFINITUM, THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON). The new video features high quality live footage from the band’s recent European tour, adding an electrifying touch to the track’s already massive sound.
KAMELOT founder and guitarist Thomas Youngblood states: “Melissa Bonny joined us on this new album and massive tour, and she has been amazing to say the least. We are really excited to have her in this new video and also on the upcoming tour in North America!”
This new video arrives on the heels of KAMELOT‘s recent announcement of their 2023 “Awaken The World” North American headline tour, featuring special guests BATTLE BEAST and additional support from labelmates XANDRIA! The tour kicks off in Silver Spring, MD on August 17th, visiting several major cities in the US and Canada before coming to an end on September 9th in Orlando, FL.
