SOILWORK have revealed the first single from the album, “The Ride Majestic”, available for listening now via lyric video which can be streamed above.
Vocalist Bjorn “Speed” Strid discussed the meaning behind the track with Billboard, ““The Ride Majestic” was one of the first songs we wrote for this album. The intro sets a certain melancholic mood and after that it’s all pure melodic mayhem. There’s a very epic and anthemic feel to it, which suits the album title perfectly. The lyrics deal with the fear of dying and the art of remaining sane while you’re still alive. Not wanting to miss a thing, wanting to embrace every moment, and being able to bring it all back on your dying day, with a snap of your fingers. It’s also a tribute to the ones we’ve lost and the comfort of hoping that they will catch us when we fall, on the other side. We believe that, if there is an afterlife, this song would be the soundtrack to that journey. It deals with the acceptance of life and death and possibly everything between and beyond.”
Catch SOILWORK on their upcoming European headline tour, dubbed the “The Tour Majestic”, with support from Hatesphere. The European dates will follow SOILWORK’s upcoming U.S. tour with Soulfly, Decapitated, and Shattered Sun, in addition to several European summer festival dates coming up soon.
