Swedish melodic death metallers DARK TRANQUILLITY have released a video for the song "Zero Distance", taken from the upcoming tour edition of the band's latest album, "We Are The Void", which will be released in Europe on October 24 via Century Media Records. The clip is the first official music video from Aduro Labs, a new film/production enterprise launched by DARK TRANQUILLITY's own Niklas Sundin, video photographer Peter Herneheim and post-production editor Love Andersson. The aim of Aduro Labs is to produce creative, original and aesthetically challenging video/animation work in a diverse range of styles. Further projects will be announced in the near future.
"Zero Distance" is only one of the rarities included in "We Are The Void (Tour Edition)". Niklas Sundin explains, "'Zero Distance' was recorded at the same time as the 'We Are The Void' album, but due to its different nature we decided to keep it for later use. The time is now right to unveil the song, as well as the other rare/bonus material recorded at the same time, in a massive 'We Are The Void' tour edition package. In addition to the added songs and liner notes by Mikael [Stanne, vocals], there's also a live DVD capturing some special moments during the 150-and-counting gigs in support of the album."
