Gogol Bordello have just released an official video for 'Lost Innocent World' which is featured on the band's critically acclaimed new album 'Pura Vida Conspiracy', which is available now on Casa Gogol/Ato Records.

With this new video, which can be seen below, lead singer Eugene Hutz wanted to capture the essence of an old saying: "Every man has to go through his hell to get to his heaven."

"The hourglass here signifies that hell, where people are too busy living in the future or living in the past", says Hutz before adding, "meanwhile, the actual and most alive part of life is indeed now. It really is yours for the taking, if you are interested in aliveness."

The video was directed by Los Angeles based Grant and Ross Kolton who grew up with a common interest in movies, music, and television with Ross exploring film while Grant focused on animation. Grant Kolton has been animating for over ten years and has worked for clients including Dave Matthews Band, HBO's 'True Blood' and rock bands Cage The Elephant and My Morning Jacket.

Meanwhile, Ross Kolton has created productions for E! News and DeathSquad TV and has recently finished his own feature length film.

Gogol Bordello have spent the last decade getting down with that energy through their meteoric live shows and has earned a solid reputation as "the hottest global touring act to come out of New York" (Billboard) and "the world's most riotous live band" (Rolling Stone).

Their wildly energetic live shows are celebrated by fans worldwide and have brought them to nearly every corner of the globe and to the main stage of festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Roskilde, Rock am Ring as well as Leeds and Reading in the UK.

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.


Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.


MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
