Long-running Swedish metal act HYPOCRISY, led by acclaimed producer/PAIN frontman Peter Tägtgren, have finished filming a video for the track "Eraser", taken from the group's upcoming album, "The Arrival". "The video contains some science fiction, some naked ladies and then some," Tägtgren writes on the band's web site.
As previously reported, "The Arrival" is scheduled for release on February 16 through Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to 2002's "Catch-22" was recorded at Tägtgren's Abyss studios and features "a wide variety of songs" that "have the same kind of feeling as [the group's] self-titled album ([1999's] 'Hypocrisy') but [with] more 'finesse' to it," according to Peter.
HYPOCRISY will be embarking on a U.S. tour with CANNIBAL CORPSE, EXHUMED and VILE beginning on February 12 in Houston, Texas. "We can't wait to hit the road with [ex-IMMORTAL drummer] Horgh and Andreas as part of the new line-up," says Tägtgren.
