EQUILIBRIUM discuss line-up in second album trailer



Progress without estrangement is a rare craft that very few bands truly master. All too often, a band ventures so far from its roots that it loses its trademark sound. And every so often, a band’s stagnation drains all of its charm. Finding that rare balance between the two is a huge task not easily accomplished. And yet there is a band that has been coming close to that perfect balance more and more over the course of the past few years. A band that, ironically, already bears that balance in its well-known name: EQUILIBRIUM.

Their latest, sixth record 'Renegades' (out: August 16th via Nuclear Blast) is heralding a watershed, the turn of an era for this genre. This is metal at its most epic and most monumental, bearing huge songs, resting firmly in the Zeitgeist with massive, modern production and sporting quite a number of eclectic influences. Above all, it’s still Equilibrium - quite possibly more than ever.

The band presents the second album trailer. Find out more about the new line-up and the band members, here: https://youtube.com/watch?v=UZjlkOR_JwA
