SPIRITUAL BEGGARS - 'Wise As A Serpent' Video Posted
March 13, 2013, 6 years ago
Swedish classic rock heavyweights SPIRITUAL BEGGARS have released their new video, for the track 'Wise As A Serpent', featured on their 8th studio album, Earth Blues, which celebrates their 20th anniversary as band and will be released via InsideOutMusic on April 15th in Europe, and April 16th in North America.
Guitarist/songwriter Michael Amott comments: "We chose this particular song as the first video off Earth Blues 'cos it's an explosive track and also the shortest song on the album! I filmed and directed the video myself and Anders Björler (AT THE GATES) did a great job on the edit. We're more than pleased with the end result, it's done in true DIY spirit... raw and authentic."

The artwork for Earth Blues was recently unveiled and Michael Amott comments as follows: "I had the idea for this artwork from my time as a child, seeing posters of two young lovers watching a romantic sunset on the beach, just your typical tacky bedroom art in the '70's really... Also, growing up in what is now referred to with some nostalgia as 'he Atomic Age - the threat of nuclear war was always looming over our heads it seemed. I wanted to combine these two images of my youth in one paradoxical image and Per Wiberg of Hippograffix (and Spiritual Beggars keyboardist) really managed to capture the melancholic feeling perfectly. Earth Blues, indeed."
