BORN OF OSIRIS have released details about their forthcoming sixth studio album, ‘Angel or Alien’, and have debuted the music video for the title track, which can be seen below.
This latest track comes nearly two months after the band dropped “White Nile,” which hinted to fans that the follow-up to 2019’s ‘The Simulation’ was certainly on the way in 2021.
Speaking about the album and new music video, guitarist Lee McKinney said: “After what has been an extremely trying year for the world, we couldn’t be more excited to bring you our new album, ‘Angel Or Alien’. We feel like we brought the best elements from each album in our discography and combined them into what you will hear on ‘Angel Or Alien’. So, no matter what album you favor in our discography, this one should shine. We tried to refine and improve on each aspect that makes us BORN OF OSIRIS, and I think it’s apparent on this record.
“The ‘Angel Or Alien’ music video was actually extremely challenging for the band and crew. We wanted to walk out into the desert where there were no footprints and find the right spot for the performance shots. I’m sure you can imagine everyone loading guitars, drums, cabs, cameras, power, etc. across the desert with each step you take sinking six inches into the sand. It all lead up to a moment I’ll never forget — everything set up on top of a dune in the desert, performing with my best friends and a great crew of amazing people filming, and looking over the desert in between takes as the sun set. I’ll never forget the moments we shared that day. I think I can speak for the band AND camera crew when I say that we truly hope you love the final product, it was both a challenge and a pleasure to create.”
BORN OF OSIRIS keyboardist and vocalist Joe Buras also commented: “There is a longing for connection. It’s not always easy and we crave it whether we know it or sometimes not. We get lost in thought at times but we always have to end up facing the world, exposed to the earth. You can shine like an Angel or hide like an Alien. Either way your heart and time are going towards the future and the end.”
