We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Sails of Serenity’s lyric video for their song “Shipwrecked” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album The Crossing, which is scheduled to be released on August 17, 2018 through Famined Records.
Sails of Serenity vocalist Selim Devirek commented on the song:
Lyrics to ‘Shipwrecked’ reflects how I was feeling during the writing session and I still am sometimes: sinking. At that time, all my goals and dreams seemed like they were going further and further away from me and I was really depressed to be unable to do anything about it. So I pictured myself as a sinking ship. It is written as a story told by a ship, torn apart by a storm, and is undertow. It sees its own parts floating and sinking but helpless to do anything. Eventually, it accepts its fate and lets itself hit the bottom. It accepts that it will always be torn apart as the closing line reads: “A shipwreck I will, I will always be.
The Crossing, was mixed and mastered by Gabor Toth (Harmed) at Ghostship Recordings (Beyond Deviation, Swallowed Alive, Bloodbather), and follows the band’s previously released Gold to Rust EP and “The Bitter End” single in 2016.
Eren Başbuğ of Dream Theater and Başer Çelebi of Furtherial make guest appearances on the new album.
