Amon Amarth releases standalone single ‘Put Your Back into the Oar’

Viking metal band Amon Amarth has released a new single, “Put Your Back into the Oar,” an ode to the epic Viking row.

The standalone single was recorded and mixed in January 2021 at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden with producer Jens Bogren. Released via the band’s own label, Victorious Music, the track was exclusively premiered on SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal on Feb. 16, 2022, and was played every hour throughout the day. Find “Put Your Back Into The Oar” on streaming platforms here and watch the accompanying music video below.

The band said: “We’ve been quiet over the last 2 years, but we’ve been at home in Sweden hard at work behind the scenes. Much has been said about fans coming to our shows to have fun and doing the “epic Viking row”. Well we thought it was a good idea to write a song about it! This one is for you, the fans, wherever you are – and may Odin guide you as you row to your destiny in uncharted seas! Enjoy the song and video while we continue to work on a new album. We can’t wait to see all you heathens soon.”

The official video was shot in England over three days in October 2021. It was produced by Twin V and directed by Ryan MackFall at Crashburn Media.
