Finnish cello act Apocalyptica have recently decided to officially release "Psalm", a new song which Perttu Kivilaakso played during the band's most recent tour. In addition to that, Apocalyptica's Paavo Lötjönen has produced the accompanying music video, which was filmed at the Sibelius Academy, where the band recorded its first album. Paavo took care of everything from direction to post-production during the making of the clip, which can be seen below.
In 2014, Apocalyptica will go on tour with a classical orchestra for the first time in their career. The collaboration will be with the Finnish Avanti! Orchestra and premiers in March 2014. The set will solely consist of instrumentally performed Apocalyptica songs, especially arranged for the band and the 25-piece orchestra. Following shows in Finland, the tour will proceed to Russia, Germany, Poland, Belarus and the Baltic states.
