Watch the video for Northlane’s frantic new single, Clockwork
Frontman Marcus Bridge explains that their new effort – which also serves as the official theme song for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Oceanic Nationals esports League – reflects “the pressures and anxieties I felt as we jumped back into writing after an uninspiring year.
“I always want to push myself creatively but with life on hold and with no end in sight, I felt empty and lonely, running out of time as our self-imposed deadline approached.”
Having said that, the band are currently hard at work on album number six, with Northlane reportedly overcoming the issues of writing in lockdown with “a bank of demos ready to go” on top of their new single. Phew.
Until then, watch Clockwork’s brilliantly dramatic video below:
