Purveyors of the legendary Gothenburg sound THE HALO EFFECT have presented us with a visualizer for the song “Path Of Fierce Resistance”, which was previously released as a Japanese exclusive on the band’s globally acclaimed debut album “Days Of The Lost”, that was released in August 2022 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Now, the ferocious track is finally being released to the rest of the world, before the band embarks on their first US headline run in May and gets back to the studio to work on their next full-length album.
Frontman Mikael Stanne comments: “Path Of Fierce Resistance” is a song we wrote for the Days of the Lost album but it only surfaced on the limited Japanese edition and it has been very close to us and having it here now for all to hear feels fantastic. The new album is in the works and we are incredibly excited about it, so consider this as something to keep you guys going until we unveil what is coming next. The song is another Jesper and Niclas classic that features everything that we love doing together in this band. Lyrically it deals with unrealistic expectations and about how important it is to follow one’s own path and be adamant about it no matter what. We start our tour in the US on the 20th of May and we are beyond stoked to bring this band to America for the first time. Do not miss this!”
Alongside the new song, THE HALO EFFECT has also released an official band documentary on their YouTube channel. The 30 minute long film was previously only available as part of the initial run of physical formats for “Days Of The Lost”, and features in-depth interviews with the members, dwelling on their humble beginnings and discussing how the band eventually came to be.
THE HALO EFFECT will kick off their first ever US headline tour on May 20th, in Hartford Connecticut.
