Primal Fear Announces New Album Details; Premieres Album’s Lead Single, Video; Announces New Live Dates

May 31 — Primal Fear will tentatively release its latest album this summer.

Code Red is scheduled for release Sept. 1 through Atomic Fire Records. In anticipation of the album’s release, the band premiered the album’s lead single, ‘Another Hero‘ and its companion video Wednesday.

The musical arrangement featured in Primal Fear’s new single is everything that audiences have come to expect from the band throughout its catalog, opening with a solid power metal style guitar riff that very quickly leads into front man Ralf Scheepers’ building operatic power metal vocal delivery style. It is a work that will appeal just as much to the band’s established audiences as to power metal fans in general.

The song’s lyrical theme is meant to address the need for something optimistic in this world so to speak, and Scheepers addressed the theme in a brief statement.

“Sometimes I wish there would be ‘Another Hero’ who shows mankind how to get along with each other in peace and harmony,” Scheepers said.

The video for the new single is a relatively straight forward presentation in its own right. It features the band on a sound stage dressed to look like a live stage setting and crosses that with images of statues that look to be ancient Greek and/or Roman figures as the song plays over the collective visualization.

Speaking of a live setting, the band is scheduled to launch a tour in support of Code Red Sept. 1 in Stuttgart, Germany. The tour’s official launch will follow a planned festival performance June 24 at Koba Live in Abadino, Spain. The tour is scheduled to run through Sept. 10 in Pratteln, Switzerland.
