Equilibrium releases first digital single “A Lost Generation”

Equilibrium Euro Tour 2020 poster
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 on August 23rd, 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 has unveiled the first digital single “A Lost Generation”. Listen to the new track below. Download or stream “A Lost Generation” here.

Berthammer states:
“We are very excited to finally share the first song from our new album with the world. Even though all songs are pretty different from each other, "Renegades" gives a good taste of what you can expect this time from Equilibrium”.

Equilibrium also released the first album trailer today. Check it and find out more about the upcoming new album “Renegades” below.

Lord Of The Lost states:
“We are very much looking forward to this tour with Equilibrium, because it means not only an exciting musical combination of both bands, but also the discovery of new territory, not only in the form of new countries and cities, but especially through a new audience for us. We are convinced that both bands will inspire the fans of the other band and can’t wait to set off with Equilibrium”.

Nailed To Obscurity adds:
“During the first tour right after the release of our latest album "Black Frost", we played in front of so many different and great people, and we can’t await to spread our songs even further. We are extremely looking forward to this tour and are counting the days until it finally starts!”...
