DARKEST ERA have released a new music video!

The new music video, for the track Tithonus, is taken from the Irish dark metal band’s upcoming new album, Wither On The Vine, which is scheduled to be released in September this year.

Speaking about the new song, guitarist Ade Mulgrew says, “the lyrics are adapted from the 1859 Tennyson poem of the same name. Based on Greek mythology, it depicts a man who is granted eternal life yet not eternal youth. Cursed to age endlessly while his lover Eos, Goddess of the Dawn, retains youth everlasting. He begins to envy the natural cycle of the living world and the mortality of men. My interpretation is simple; to harvest as much richness of meaning from every moment as possible.”

Filmed inside an old industrial brass factory in Belfast, Ireland, director Anaïs Mulgrew explains the video, “the music of Tithonus gave me the vision of an angel in torn drapes, desperately dancing to feel his life-force as it inexorably fades away. And so it tells the story before Floodlands, on how a life loving being becomes the ashes in the Mourner’s hands.”

Wither On the Vine is set for release on September 30th via Candlelight Records. Pre-orders are available now and can be purchased here.
