Dubai based progressive rockers, have released their debut video for I Am, So I Will. The track comes from the band’s forthcoming second album, Fractals, which is released worldwide on March 26. Featuring ten hauntingly beautiful tracks, the album is an emotionally-rich opus, mixing soaring melodies, crunching riffs, thought provoking lyrical themes and atmospheric soundscapes akin to bands such as Karnivool, Porcupine Tree and Tool.
Singer Nadim Jamal comments: “The song is about making the best of your life, with the knowledge that all the events around you are guided by nothing more than chaos – an infinite and unpredictable string of causality, a chain of events. However cautious we are, however we try to guide our lives down a certain path we never know when tragedy can strike or the exact opposite, when good things will happen. For this reason we just have to do our best to enjoy the experience, make the best of it all – whether it’s an up or a down.”
The video was filmed on location in Dubai by Director, Cyril Eberle, Ben Pritchard (Director of Photography), Daniela Paula (Producer), Reni Kleinow (Editor), Emanuel Koydl (Editor Animations) and a team of motion designers.
Since the bands inception in 2008 and release of debut album Resolve[d] in 2010, the combination of Absolace’s intense, dynamic live shows and professional standard of musicianship has enabled the United Arab Emirates band to gain a large and loyal following across the Middle East. This has enabled the band to play at festivals including Formula 1 Festival in Abu Dhabi, Byblos Festival in Lebanon and the Peace One Day Live Festival, whilst also opening for large bands such as Anathema and 30 Seconds to Mars.
