STATEMENT “The Hurt”
New official video from the Danish hard rockers Statement, taken off their latest album “Force Of Life”, released in March 2019 by Mighty Music. Filmed & edited by Kristian ”Iver” Iversen.
STATEMENT comes from the dusty suburban parts of Copenhagen. This is where their flashy melodic hard rock with a touch of a heavier metal element originates.
They released their debut album ”Monsters” in 2014 and their second album “Heaven will Burn” in 2016. Both albums have collected several great reviews from home and abroad, and Japan has shown great interest in the Danish albums, as well as the accompanying single releases with music videos “Heaven Will Burn”, “Madness” and “Created By You”. The Bands singles have been in constant rotation on various FM radio stations.
The Band is known for its energetic performance on stage, and they have a lot of live shows and festivals on their resume. Some of the jobs they have played, includes support for fellow danes PRETTY MAIDS, the legendary kings TESLA (US), and they have taken part in a European tour, with Metallica’s great source of inspiration and NWOBHM pioneers, DIAMOND HEAD (UK). STATEMENT delivers a powerful and energetic show every time, and there is no doubt, they love what they do when they are Rocking the stage!
FORCE OF LIFE is the title of the bands third album, and the scene it set for what the boys would call a “kick ass” Hard rock album release! This time with Soren Andersen from Medley Studios behind the mixer. It gives the band a new and exciting edge, which can be compared to great bands like Scorpions, Metallica and Accept, but also salutes newer modern rock acts like Five Finger Death Punch and Halestorm.
FORCE OF LIFE is a modern Hard Rock album that gives the listener an interpretation of the society we are part of ourselves. The songs are, amongst other things, written from a political point of view as well as war, peace, faith, hope, love, stress, anxiety for giving too much of yourself or being in an evil lonesome spiral.
STATEMENT presented their first single ”Darkness In Your Eyes” from the upcoming album this year (29/03-2018), and the single was instantly announced as “track of the week”, in the legendary Classic Rock Magazine. The second single ”I Wonder Why”, from the new album was released the 19/10-2018, and both singles has been well received in several FM radio stations.
