VOIVOD Launch Official Music Video For New Track "Sleeves Off"; Synchro Anarchy Album Out Now
February 11, 2022, 10 months ago
Canadian progressive sci-fi metal innovators, Voivod, have released their new studio album, Synchro Anarchy, via Century Media Records.
To celebrate the release, the band have released a new video clip created by Felipe Belalcazar / Mental Pictures for the track, “Sleeves Off”,
Vocalist and lyricist Denis “Snake” Bélanger states about the track/video, “Here’s a cool clip from our friend Felipe Belalcazar. It’s a mixture of animation and live footage. The animation in the clip goes backwards, maybe in reference about the past when I had to make big decisions, as a teenager. Some were good, some were bad, but one thing for sure, I didn’t want to be cast in a mold to fit perfectly in the conformity of the world. I wanted to be me, show everyone who I was, do things on my own, and be creative. And when I met the boys, I found the place where I wanted to be. The live footage shows that I was right, as we are still going after so long. Enjoy!“
Bélanger adds about today’s release of Synchro Anarchy, “Here it is folks. So proud to present this album to you. It is one of a kind, a very unique and distinctive album. It was made with all the passion we have for music under particular conditions. Driven by a nuclear brainstorm between the 4 of us in a state of emergency. Written, recorded, and delivered, and not necessarily in that order, we managed to do it all in a few months. We hope you will enjoy the album. We can’t wait to see you all of you, our fans out there on our upcoming tours. We’ve been missing you!”
Synchro Anarchy was recorded and mixed by Francis Perron at RadicArt Studio in Québec, Canada and mastered by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Mastering in California, and produced by Voivod. The album features cover artwork by Michel “Away” Langevin.
