LEGEND PREMIERE NEW MUSIC VIDEO "MIDNIGHT CHAMPION" VIA REVOLVER MAGAZINE!
September 30, 2017
Icelandic band LEGEND will release their sophomore album Midnight Champion on October 13, 2017 via Artoffact Records! Pre-orders are available now at iTunes, where you get the track 'Captive' and 'Frostbite' as an instant grat song, andBandcamp.
Today the band has partnered up with Revolver Magazine to premiere the official music video for the title track from Midnight Champion. Check out the exclusive premiere HERE!
When asked by Revolver about the meaning behind the song "Midnight Champion," singer Krummi Björgvinsson said, "It's basically about how we create killers with our prejudice and abuse. The main character is a broken dark soul - Midnight Champion - out for revenge against mankind and becomes a martyr. Rising like a phoenix from the flame. Being born again. How mankind destroys everything that it doesn't understand and it harbors fear, which leads to regression of our empathy, compassion, knowledge and imagination." Read the full interview with Björgvinsson HERE.
The new record takes off from where the dark synth stylings of Fearless left off, with each song taking the listener into a seemingly different universe from the song before it. From moody, introspective (post)-rock, to dancefloor-worthy hits, to riffing metal-oriented tracks that show off Krummi's peerless voice, Midnight Champion is not simply a sequel to Fearless; it exceeds it in every way, making good on the promise that that first record was, as Krummi once said in an interview, "only the beginning."
Midnight Champion features stunning art which was specially commissioned from Branca Studio (Danko Jones, Pentagram, Black Dahlia Murder, Swans) and was recorded in Iceland at Studio Neptunus and Unstudios.
The album is available worldwide October 13, 2017 on Artoffact Records as a double vinyl pressed on special cream colour (black also available), as well as CD digipak and a special edition cassette. Head over to THIS location to see bundle options.
"Bridges the gap between 80s dancefloor goth and just-the-tip darkwave; Gabriel-esque synthpop meathooks keep them tethered to the tiles."
-Jordan Campbell, Last Rites
"[Legend's] 2012 record 'Fearless' is a must-have for anyone interested in dark-minded music."
-Hannah May Kilroy, Terrorizer
"The perfect antidote to all that forced holiday jollity."
