[press release] We’ve been talking about this for a few months and it’s all finally coming true... Fen’s first official video is complete and ready to be viewed by the masses! Tuesday, February 8th, the video for the band's second single from Trails Out of Gloom, “Miracle”, will exclusively air on the Heavy Planet web site HERE (or check it out below), before it’s made available through other viewing avenues. At the same time, “Miracle” is landing on the desks of radio programmers across the nation in a concerted effort to push the track. Produced by Mind of a Snail Co. and featuring a couple of hand-made marionettes, the video tells the visual tale of two young lovers finding out just how miraculous love can be.
“The speaker is pining to regain the initial spark of a relationship,” states singer/guitarist Doug Harrison on the meaning behind the song. “He pleads with whatever mysterious power brought them together, hoping that it will help him fully remember that miraculous union, and through this knowledge, bring them closer together again,” he explains.
In support of Trails Out of Gloom, Vancouver’s progressive alt-gloomsters are preparing for dates across Canada in the Spring, as well as a special tour that will feature live performances in select ghost towns. More information will be made available as soon as the details are worked out on all fronts!
Here's what the press has to say about Trails Out of Gloom:
"Consistently enchanting from start to finish, Trails Out of Gloom is one of the more rapturous releases you're likely to encounter in quite some time. It is fantastic in every way. Highest possible rating, 16/16." -- Progressions Magazine
"It’s one of the better if not the best release in 2010!” – Prognaut
"Doug Harrison is one of the new remarkable talent in the prog scene. Beautifully structured songs that almost drown in the right emotions and are decorated with tasteful arrangements. Fen resembles Anathema meets Threshold, but with an original, unique angle.” – Lords of Metal
