Australian symphonic/gothic metal act Victoria K unveils a live performance of “Freaks” from their upcoming live DVD. Watch it below.
Victoria K will be releasing their first official DVD “Live Isolation Concert” on January 29, 2021 via Rockshots Records. The top-notch live DVD experience was recorded during the pandemic crisis and includes all the songs from the highly acclaimed debut album “Essentia” unleashed during April 2020. Leading up to the DVD’s release, Victoria K is sharing the video clip for the track “Freaks”:
The band adds: “The song Freaks is based on the book “Freaks” by author Kieran Larwood. In the book, The Freaks are a band of misfits, trapped in a nightly Victorian sideshow. The song Freaks, therefore, explores how outcasts don’t fit in with the norms of society and are shunned by others and how these outcasts work through figuring out a way to finally accept and love who they are.”
The DVD was the only way we could share a concert of our music with the world during the global pandemic,” they continue. “It shows how adaptable and resilient we can all be during times of crisis and that nothing can stop the music that brings people together and transcends race, religion, and even a global crisis. As artists to be able to leave a legacy even during times of global crisis is humbling and a reminder that we can overcome all adversity. Critically to be able to give something back to the fans for all their support over the years was very important to us and we a grateful for how the album Essentia was received. So the live isolation show was really a thank you to all our fans and a reminder that together we can get through this pandemic.”
