2021-08-18 - Today the band unleashes the second teaser for their upcoming album “A Valediction”, which is set to be released on November 19th. This time, it´s the catchy title track that manifests OBSCURAs meldodic pace, that they stand for over a decade.
Mastermind Steffen Kummerer comments the track as follows: "The title track combines past and future to the present. With a combination of virtuosity, catchiness and clear arrangements, “A Valediction” unfolds a bittersweet, fragile temper and sums up the lyrical framework of the entire album. A worthy title track and characterful summit of upcoming concerts."
The video was shot, once again, with talented Mirko Witzki and brings back the vibes of late 90ies MTV.
