Dark Tranquillity: premieres "Uniformity" music video online
Melodic death metal pioneers DARK TRANQUILLITY will release their much-anticipated 10th studio album, Construct, on May 27th in Europe and on May 28th in North America via Century Media Records. In anticipation of this release, the band has now teamed up with Metal Hammer UK to launch the video for the new single "Uniformity". This video-clip was produced and directed by Revolver Film Company and Patric Ullaeus, who previously worked with IN FLAMES, HAMMERFALL and LACUNA COIL.

The band comments about the video for "Uniformity": "After the introspective 'For Broken Words' and the uptempo riffing of 'The Science of Noise', it's time to showcase the more anthemic aspects of the new album with the song 'Uniformity'. In contrast to the more experimental promo videos we made last year, we wanted the 'Uniformity' clip to be an intimate and genuine performance video. Nothing but the music itself and the band members playing in the rehearsal room. For this, we hired renowned director Patric Ullaeus, and we're very happy to share the result with you. Stand up and be counted!"

Decades after their inception, Gothenburg's DARK TRANQUILLITY remains at the forefront of the scene that they helped to define as one of the longest-standing melodic death metal bands. Their 10th studio album, Construct, continues in the tradition of their past records by not straying from the band's roots, while also putting a fresh spin on their trademark sound. After over 20 years together, DARK TRANQUILLITY yet again proves that they are more vital than ever.
