Progressive symphonic metal act Scardust shares the release party of their new album “Strangers”. Watch it below.
To celebrate the launch of their acclaimed new concept album “Strangers”, the Israeli band Scardust – praised by Prog Magazine as “serious contenders in the symphonic/prog metal world” – hosted a live-stream release party on Facebook on Nov. 14. The event featured the first-ever live performances of several songs from the new record, as well as a Q&A with special guest musician Patty Gurdy, who appears on the album’s “Concrete Cages”. Archived video of that event is now available for free on-demand viewing:
“2020 was a hell of a ride for Scardust!” says vocalist Noa Gruman. “COVID-19 tried to sabotage the recording of our album and the making of no less than six music videos (and more to come), but we managed to keep to our schedule even when we barely could meet up with each other. Countless fans told us they wished they could see us live on stage with the new songs, so on Nov. 14, we returned to Bardo Studios, where we recorded the drums and choirs for ‘Strangers,’ to play a live-stream show to celebrate the release of the new album. We’ve missed performing live so much, and it made us very happy to play live again and interact with our beloved audience. The thousands of people who joined the live stream that night made it double the thrill. This video is an unedited record of that wonderful event – technical glitches and all!“
