Finnish rock band Poets of the Fall are back with an imaginative video to their brand new single, ‘Requiem for My Harlequin‘, taken from their upcoming ninth studio album ‘Ghostlight’. It’s an immersive voyage through the fantasy world of the lead character’s mind, with its tricks and illusions, which create the beliefs and thus, the proof by which we tend to swear. The video is yet another stunning work of art by the group, a veritable blast of vivid imagery and humour, touching the deepest recesses of the soul.

Watch the video here.

Frontman Marko Saaresto comments: “Ghostlight is all about dramatic melodic rock and massive, impressive ballads. The first single, Requiem for My Harlequin, is something in between; a massive rock ‘n roll melodrama, that hurtles on flashing and blaring like a frenzied parade.”

Ghostlight‘ is out on 29th April via Playground Music. Pre-orders are available now at shop.poetsofthefall.com
