The 'virtual' single will include the new song 'Fantasia Gotica', defined by the band as a very original cinematic orchestral ballad of rare emotional impact, and a new great video realized by the Swedish video director Owe Lingvall of Dreamday Media (U2, The Rasmus) right for the song 'Clash Of The Titans'. The location chosen for the shooting of the new video was New York and the talented video director has no doubts: "The visual impact of the new video will underline once more the strong link between Rhapsody and the world of movies."
Meanwhile, eleven more dates have been added to the European leg of the 'Ascending To Infinity Cinematic' World Tour.
Here's the new promotional video, realized by Luca Turilli.
"We are working with our friend Owe Lingvall to present a new generation of shows on our upcoming tour", states Dominique, guitar player of the band. And adds: "The songs of the new album, the legendary hits of the first albums, some of those old glorious Rhapsody songs never or rarely played until now, a couple of surprises from the solo releases of Luca Turilli: the great variety of the setlist is surely guaranteed and we will offer music for all tastes!."
Alex Landenburg, the new drummer, adds: "The collaboration with Dreamday Media and the use of video projection will set a new standard for our shows in this and in the future tours. But this is not everything as many more exciting surprises are waiting for you. Therefore be ready to live an intense emotional experience and see you soon to spend some great and unique cinematic evenings together!"
