After their insanely successful co-headlining tour with label mates AMORPHIS (18 sold out shows) in support of their globally acclaimed new record, Verkligheten (album of the month in Metal Hammer, Rock Hard, Aardschok and Scream), Swedish visionary metallers SOILWORK have issued the following statement: "Verkligheten has been out almost two months now and we keep getting amazed by the recognition it gets. We just finished off a successful EU tour with our friends in AMORPHIS, JINJER and NAILED TO OBSCURITY. Once again we want to thank everyone for attending our shows and making it memorable.
To sum up our journey through Europe, we chose to make a live video out of ‘Sålfågel’ as the crowd reaction, when playing it live, was just INSANE!!! Verkligheten is a new era of SOILWORK and we are ready to take this journey with our fans. We cannot wait to get back on the road this summer and bring Verkligheten to life again!!! See you all soon!!!"

The clip was shot by Jörg Harms from Black Vision Films and mixed by Tommy Bertelsen and SOILWORK's Sylvain Coudret
