“There are tales that will be told forever –
Carried by the wind, through the years, timeless…”
– Unknown-

Visions Of Atlantis have released the third single, “Tonight I’m Alive”, taken from their upcoming album, “Pirates II – Armada”, set for release this Friday, July 5th, 2024 via Napalm Records. The percussive “Tonight I’m Alive” surprises and captivates with the rhythms of a pirate party on the eve of combat, with the electrifying rumble of a hurricane – a unique, uncharted showcase of talent from Visions Of Atlantis. The song contains an uplifting melody and invites to conquer the seven seas with Pirate queen Clémentine Delauney and brave captain Michele Guaitoli on a pirate armada.

With this epic and stormy song, the pirates of Visions Of Atlantis prove that they are more than ready to claim the crown of symphonic metal! The band takes listeners on their heaviest symphonic adventure yet with their new studio album and successor to their high-charting previous release, “Pirates” (2022). The album reaches as high as the waves cresting the Jolly Roger – taking everything that has been achieved to date to another level. Now, with “Pirates II – Armada”, the journey of the symphonic pirates continues and leads into a grand European tour coming up in fall, boasting 33 shows all over Europe – the biggest headline tour of their promising career so far. Brace yourself and get ready for this unique symphonic metal spectacle!

Pirate queen Clémentine Delauney herself on “Tonight I’m Alive”:

“We stand on the eve of a dark future, with threats, enemies and clouds gathering in every direction. On the edge of this cliff, staring into the void that awaits us, one could flee, one could lose their mind. We, pirates, we dance. We dance in the face of danger and death. We honor life; we honor our existence. We remember that the purity of our hearts and souls can never be taken away from us. We remember that in this very moment, we’re alive. Come what may, we’ll dance in the rain.”

Ship’s log:
July 5, 2024; High Seas
“A new day of sailing begins, the wind on our side, and the sea speaks of recent battles. The air feels fresh – Hypocrisy, greed, envy – hearts of the old world finally disclose their deluded truth. Old leaders are losing ground, their lies are getting worse, and darkness creeps in. Each sunny day hides a coming storm, nature testing our strength for the last battle.

We’ve become pirates as their counterparts, free-spirited and true at heart. Navigating storms that try to make us doubt, we see the light in the darkness. The old truth is fading, making room for a new story. Our destiny is in our hands, in our hearts, in every step we take. Reconnecting with ourselves, we touch the essence of life we share with all creatures. Together, unstoppable, connected to the truth, guided by the sun and storms.

We’ll rule the oceans, the mainland, every street, every house, spreading hope. Our pirate cries will last for centuries, with ancestors humming our tunes, our words sung in the new world we create. Our glory will live on forever. United as one force, one army, under a final ARMADA.”
