2021-06-18 - Last week, the enchanted three announced their new album, set to be released on September 3rd via Nuclear Blast.
Today, the band unleashes their first single and video for the track "Pearl Diving", which takes us on a beautiful journey of sounds and voices and taps directly into emotions.

Troy Donockley comments on the song as follows:
"No lifebelts needed.
Where is the sea and where is the boat but more importantly, what is 'The Pearl'? How deep do we dive to find it? How was it made and how old is it? Shapeshifters and the whispering seagulls of the 12 note scale will tell us.
Aweigh anchor, Away!"
