"Follow Me", the new video from Swedish metallers PAIN, can be viewed below. The clip, which was shot earlier this month, features a special guest appearance by NIGHTWISH singer Anette Olzon. The performance footage in the video was filmed during PAIN's October 9, 2008 concert at Tavastia in Helsinki, Finland.
"Follow Me" is the first single off PAIN's new album, "Cynic Paradise", which will be released in Germany on October 31 via Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to "Psalms of Extinction" (which was released in 2007 via Roadrunner) features "eleven gems offering a vast variety of styles and influences which are even new for PAIN," according to a press release. Anette Olzon makes a guest appearance on two tracks — "Follow Me" and "Feed Us". The artwork was created by renowned artist Travis Smith (AMORPHIS, OPETH, NEVERMORE).
Nina Rung from Domination conducted an interview with PAIN frontman Peter Tägtgren (see video below) prior to the band's concert at Tavastia in Helsinki, Finland. Also available is video footage of the "Follow Me" performance at Tavastia featuring Anette Olzon (live footage courtesy of Finland's HardcoreSounds.Net).
PAIN will take part in a signing session at Media Markt in Bäckebol, Gothenburg, Sweden on November 28 at 5:00 p.m. (17.00).
