Finland´s hottest rock / metal act Blind Channel have released their new single ‘We Are No Saints’. The track is another instalment of the band’s very own brand of ‘Violent-Pop’, with explosive guitars and furious beatdowns alongside huge anthemic choruses emphasising the songs theme of identity.
It comes with a stunning music video produced by No-Office films, which went live yesterday at 6PM UK / 7PM CET / 1PM ET HERE.
The band comments:-
“After our recent breakthrough, we faced a lot of demands from the music industry, the people around us and even from the government. All eyes on us, and not everybody’s happy with us shaking cages - musically or otherwise. Some people want us to be something we’re not in order to fit the concept of role models - national heroes. This song is our answer to those demands. We are a lot of things, but we are no saints.”
The new single follows the release of ‘Balboa’, and the powerful Eurovision predecessor ’Dark Side’, which now has more than 42 million streams to date
The band have also confirmed they are going to share the stage with German metalcore band Eskimo Callboy and join their 2022 European Hypa Hypa tour, which includes a UK show at London’s Electric Ballroom on 19th January. You can find all tour dates here.
Blind Channel were formed in 2013 in the city of Oulu, way up in the North of Finland, by a group of five talented, determined and ambitious friends – vocalists Joel Hokka and Niko Vilheim, drummer Tommi Lalli, guitarist Joonas Porko and bass player Olli Matela. This five some has stuck together to this day, in the spirit of the 2018 sophomore album Blood Brothers, each of them collectively responsible for the song writing.
Last year saw the addition of a new member, as long time friend Alex Mattson joined to play keyboard, samples and percussion and completes the current line up.
Following the release of their 2020 album Violent Pop, ‘We Are No Saints’ is the band’s latest taste of music from an upcoming album due for release next year, which sees them working with renowned UK producer Dan Lancaster (Blink 182, Bring Me The Horizon, Don Broco).
