Symphonic metal band Ad Infinitum has released “Somewhere Better,” the second single and video from its upcoming album “Chapter III: Downfall,” due March 31, 2023, via Napalm Records.
“After playing ‘Somewhere Better’ on tour and sharing fantastic and emotional moments with thousands of people all around Europe and the U.K., we are thrilled to release this song, together with a video full of memories of our tour with Amaranthe, Beyond the Black and Butcher Babies,” the band said. “Warm greetings to all the people who will spot themselves in this video!”
Produced by Ad Infinitum and Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios, “Chapter III: Downfall” explores concepts of Ancient Egyptian history and mythology.
“For this album, we explored stories and legends of Ancient Egypt with, as star character and main inspiration, Cleopatra,” the band said. “We added some extra dimension and sounds to our signature Ad Infinitum sound to create an extra dimension, transporting the listener to mystical landscapes of another era. We are beyond excited to start to unveil this new record!”
The album’s first single, “Upside Down,” garnered over 250,000 views on YouTube within a few days of its release last month.
