Latest release: "Radiation"

Release date: Fri, Jul 07 2017, US Fri, Jul 07 2017

IMPURE WILHELMINA are revealing a pro-shot performance video for the song, "We Need a New Sun", which is taken from the Swiss' latest album, 'Radiation'. The filming by Brunelle Gerber underscores the excellent dynamics and masterful tension-building of this track that moves from bleak melancholy to an outburst of furious despair.

"We Need a New Sun" can be viewed via the official Season of Mist YouTube channel here!

IMPURE WILHELMINA comment: "We are proud to present our new video for the song 'We Need a New Sun'. The images were shot during two shows that we played last year. On this basis, we wanted to transcribe both the energy of our live performances and the very special atmosphere of this song. Brunelle Gerber, who directed the video, managed to reconcile these two dimensions in a particularly sensitive and aesthetic way."

IMPURE WILHELMINA have been creating music on the border between rock and metal for over 20 years. Founded by vocalist and guitarist Michael Schindl and his brother David on drums in 1996, the band from Geneva made a strong impact with their self-released debut album 'Afraid' (1999), which saw the Swiss being regarded on the same level with compatriots such as NOSTROMO and KNUT from the local metallic hardcore scene.

During the next years, the line-up of IMPURE WILHELMINA underwent many changes, while revolving around main composer and lyricist Michael Schindl. These creative encounters allowed the band to endlessly rethink their direction and turn each of their albums into a singular piece, while keeping a unique touch, mixing intensity, heaviness, melody and melancholy.

IMPURE WILHELMINA released a self-titled 7" in 1996, the 'Undressing Your Soul' EP in 1998, a split EP with ORDEAL in 2001, and five full-lengths so far. The critically acclaimed 'I Can't Believe I Was Born in July' (2003) and 'L'amour, la mort, l'enfance perdue' (2005) have been viewed as key albums regarding the band's style, while 'Prayers and Arsons' (2008) marked a new step in their evolution with the inclusion of more rock elements.

Not resting on their laurels, IMPURE WILHELMINA generated much enthusiasm and surprise with their recently released full-length 'Black Honey', which was first released on vinyl in 2014 and followed by a CD in 2015. This album features more prominent and clean singing. Overall less aggressive, 'Black Honey' boosts emotional intensity and melodic atmospheres, while revealing multiple new facets of the band.

Over the years, IMPURE WILHELMINA have garnered an excellent reputation as a particularly strong live entity and shared stages with illustrious groups such as NEUROSIS, ENTOMBED, THE OCEAN, GOJIRA, ISIS, ZATOKREV, and KRUGER.

With 'Radiation', IMPURE WILHELMINA have created an album that invites the listener to explore and discover new hidden treasures with every spin. Welcome to this journey into uncharted musical lands…
