Swedish cutting edge rock band Amaranthe have dropped a video for the new memorable single “That Song,” which will appear on upcoming album Maximalism.

“The time has come to unveil ‘That Song’ to the world,” said guitarist Olof Mörck, who can be seen in the clip below rocking his Jackson SLATTXMG 3-6. “Showcasing a new side of Amaranthe, the song combines an anthemic arena riff with an irresistibly groovy flow, creating maybe the most unique Amaranthe track yet! Describing the strife and hardships that follow with trying to pursue your dreams, ‘That Song’ embodies the turning point in your life when your direction becomes clear. So stomp your feet and clap your hands to ‘That Song’!”

Directed by longtime collaborator Patric Ullaeus, the video cuts between the members of the band performing at various gigs.

Maximalism will be released on October 21 via Spinefarm Records, and has been described in a press release as “a hyper-modern, metallic beast of a record” containing “12 new tracks that fully live up to the ‘bigger, bolder’ promise of the title.”
