German medieval folk rock greats Schandmaul will release their upcoming 11th full-length, “Knüppel aus dem Sack”, out June 10th, 2022 via Napalm Records. The adventurous new offering once again demonstrates the unit’s inimitable talent as songwriters and storytellers and invites everyone to enter a thrilling and captivating world of sound. The third single and album closing track “Niamh” opens the gates to the aforementioned ride.

A gripping interlude presented through medieval instruments paves the way for the distinctive vocal offering of Thomas Lindner, who immediately manages to bring stories to life in once mind through his remarkable talent of presenting words like a cinematic happening. Additionally, “Niamh” is highlighted through an atmospheric official video that captivates the spirit of the band and heats up the anticipation for upcoming live shows.

Thomas Lindner on “Niamh”:

“’Niamh’ is a journey into the world of Irish legends and myths, into the land of eternal youth! ‘Heart, what do you desire more?’, one would like to ask.
But mankind would not be mankind if we were satisfied with something. So we strive for more and the story takes its course…
A song to dive in and let yourself be carried away!”
