Commented the band: "The most important thing is that this album is for us and our fans. To get recognition that it's doing well in the charts worldwide is the icing on the cake. We thank everyone out there who supports Sonic Syndicate by legally buying our new 'Self-Titled' release. You rock!"
The band recently started a series of trailers in which every member of the band talks their favorite track of the new, fifth album. The newest episode featuring vocalist Nathan James Biggs can be watched here: Watch guitarist and songwriter Robin Sjunnesson talk his favourite at this location: Recently the official music video for the second single, 'Before You Finally Break', has been released. The clip was shot by renowned director Patric Ullaeus (IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR, CHILDREN OF BODOM, etc) and features SOILWORK singer Björn 'Speed' Strid on guest vocals.
A exclusive Making Of has been made available here: Check out the official music video at Commented singer Nathan James Biggs: „I'm honored to call Speed a friend. I've been a big SOILWORK fan for years. Those guys were a massive hand in crafting that trademark Swedish sound so it made perfect sense to ask Speed when we knew we wanted to do a song with guest vocals. Performance wise I think we have similar styles and execution, but at the same time we both have our own thing going on so the voices compliment each other to great effect. My idea was also to have a real battle between our vocals. I hate it when you have these "featuring" songs and the guest just pops up for a chorus and then does backing vocals for a while in the verse or something. This is a real fight between us for the mic and I'm sure people are gonna appreciate that.
“ Bjorn “Speed” Strid adds: “Working with Sonic Syndicate is always a pleasure, whether it's in the studio, tour, or in a cool looking abandoned car shop in the industrial area of Gothenburg. I loved recording vocals on this song and especially being able to do somewhat of a duet with Nathan Biggs. He's a truly talented singer and a good friend. Doing the video was easy, fun and pretty intense at the same time. It turned out real sick.. Check it out!”
