VOIVOD Release Video for New Single ‘Iconspiracy’

Kick Off European Tour Today!

Canadian progressive sci-fi metal innovators VOIVOD are soon to release their new studio album “The Wake” on 21 September 2018 via Century Media Records worldwide.

Today, VOIVOD are releasing the album’s third single “Iconspiracy” in a fantastic video clip created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight 13 Media.

You can watch the video here:

VOIVOD’s Denis “Snake” Bélanger checked in with the following comment about the clip: “What I really like about VOIVOD fans is that they are all able to make their own interpretation of the lyrics or the story of our songs. This video is such a good portrait of “Iconspiracy” and the artist pinpoints awesome visuals in regards to the meaning and representation of the story itself. Thanks to Costin, an amazing artist who did really great work for us in the past and still blows my mind every time again. Question everything! Iconspiracy!”

And video director Costin Chioreanu added: The most difficult task of an illustrator is to work for his all-time favourite bands. Then he becomes extremely exigent with what he creates and wants to get beyond any known limit. Obviously, this type of experiences are priceless by all means at the same time, because everything goes utterly intense and he feels like a starship exploring the Universe at full warp speed and experiencing several amazing unseen worlds per second. “The Wake” is the album of the year 2018 for me and the video I literally built from scratch for “Iconspiracy” follows the song lyrics and the spaces between them. At the same time, both the story and video fight to remain alive while trying to keep up with the infernal dynamics of the song, which represent another musical proof of the VOIVOD’s genius. Other than that, this video speaks by itself, just like the music, therefore who is prepared to be awaken, will be!”

Most recently, VOIVOD have made a 7” EP available for the album’s second single “Always Moving”, which features ‘Order Of The Blackguards (Live 2018)’ as B-Side and is limited to a total of 1000 copies, available in the following editions:

VOIVOD’s “The Wake” is the highly anticipated successor to 2013’s “Target Earth” album as well as the 2016 mini-album “Post Society”. The album was recorded and mixed by Francis Perron at RadicArt Recording Studio in Canada and its artwork (as well as the art for the “Iconspiracy“ single, to be seen above!) was once again created by VOIVOD drummer Michel “Away” Langevin.

VOIVOD, who are currently celebrating their 35th band-anniversary, are currently successfully touring across Europe to launch “The Wake”. Here is a list of the remaining dates coming up:
