On 4th August 2016, after a seven day count down on their Facebook page, Finnish rock band Poets of the Fall premiered their new single Drama for Life and lyric video on YouTube. It is a taster for the rest of the material for their up-coming album Clearview, due out 30th September 2016.
As is the norm now, the lyric video isn’t just a basic words on screen/karaoke layout, but instead quite interactive, with Marko Saaresto miming the words, whilst appearing to be in a make-shift mental asylum cell/prison. Though Poets of the Fall have completed two of their conceptual trilogies (Signs of Life, 2005 – Temple of Thought, 2012 and Revolution Roulette, 2008 – Jealous Gods, 2014) , which I feel may have been indirectly connected/apart of the same universe, it feels that Clearview may an additional chapter to one of these trilogies, or plausibly both, we’ll have to see.
