Lithuanian dark metal band Juodvarnis shares another single and video from their performance at MJR Kaukynės XXI½ festival.
The band presented their newest album “Nerimo Dienos” (‘Days of Disquiet’) by headlining the main scene of the festival on 28th of August, 2020.
The video shows band playing the last album’s track called “Trys“, which is a cover version of an old song written by Andrius Mamontovas – one of the most popular Lithuanian pop/alternative rock musicians (released in 1998 on album “Šiaurės Naktis. Pusė Penkių.”). It was the only time this cover version was performed live so far. The single can be also found on Spotify, Apple Music and other main streaming platforms.
Band comments: “Even though the last year has highly impacted the cultural life worldwide, we managed to release a new album as well as to present it in a few amazing live shows in Lithuania. We have received a lot of great comments about our interpretation of the song “Trys” and we are really grateful that Andrius gave us permission to re-arrange and record it. This is a very emotional and tearful song which perfectly merges with the feel of other album tracks and closes it.
The ongoing pandemic still limits the opportunities for musicians to meet their fans. At the same time we understand that a lot of our listeners did not have a chance to visit “MJR Kaukynės” festival and experience this song live. Due to this, we decided to share it in a different way – by releasing a new single along with a music video. We hope it will brighten these days of disquiet for you. Stay safe and healthy. Let’s meet in the future shows once this is possible!”
