NEW APOCALYPTICA VIDEO, “EN ROUTE TO MAYHEM,” JOURNEYS TO A POST-HUMANITY FUTURE

Finland’s multi-Platinum cello-rock band Apocalyptica announces a spectacular new music video for 'En Route To Mayhem', taken from the band's new Album, Cell-0, set for release January 10, 2020.

“En Route To Mayhem,” the new music video from Finland’s multi-Platinum cello-rock band Apocalyptica, transports the viewer to a fantastical post-humanity future. This imaginary world is barren, dusty, and littered with broken pieces of things once considered essential to humankind: bits of plastic, a teddy bear, crumbling structures, cell phones and computers, bleached bones, and long-forgotten musical instruments. The setting is devoid of mankind, but brimming with the hope of new life; and then one day, thunder, lightning, and one drop at a time, it begins to rain, and Mother Nature steps in.

Said Apocalyptica’s Eicca Toppinen:

“'En Route To Mayhem” is a journey of hedonic needs growing into greed and aggression, driving into inner mayhem and ending without satisfaction. This video underlines the fact that however we think we are in control by destroying things and life around us, life itself will take over in the end, always. We are not in control of the bigger picture, and we should be aware of it and raise our respect to life around us.”

The “En Route To Mayhem” video is in support of Apocalyptica’s upcoming album, Cell-0, due out January 10, 2020 (Silver Lining Music). Produced by Apocalyptica - cellists Eicca Toppinen, Perttu Kivilaakso, and Paavo Lötjönen, and drummer Mikko Sirén - mixed by Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lana Del Rey, Metallica and Black Sabbath), and recorded at Sonic Pump studios in Helsinki, the recording of Cell-0 followed a four-year break between albums that gave the band a fresh perspective and affected the way they approached the new music. Cell-0 is the quartet's first instrumental album in 17 years and found the musicians challenging themselves to discover new flavors and colors in their respective instruments.

In concert, Apocalyptica is known for its moving and bombastic live performances with sparse production but an abundance of head banging. The band will kick off the New Year as Special Guest on Sabaton's 15-country, 23-date European arena tour that begins on January 17, 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland. Apocalyptica has also announced the first leg of its 2020 North American tour that starts May 3 in Orlando, Florida and will see the band performing in 20 cities over a three-week period, wrapping up on May 26 in Boston, MA.
