Finnish metallers BATTLE BEAST have just released their fifth studio album, "No More Hollywood Endings", via Nuclear Blast Records. To mark the occasion, the group has unveiled a brand new music video for the track "Endless Summer", which was once again directed by Markus Nieminen and produced by Oy Routafilmi AB.
Keyboardist Janne Björkroth states: "'Endless Summer' brings a little bit of sunshine to the album. It's a light-hearted summer song which takes us on a nostalgic trip, back to a carefree summer some years ago. We recommend for this song to be used when driving on a sunny day. Put the radio on, roll the window down and let the wind blow through your hair."
"No More Hollywood Endings" was recorded by Janne Björkroth, Viktor Gullichsen and Joona Björkroth at JKB Studio. The production and mixing duties were handled by Janne. The cover artwork was created by Jan Yrlund (KORPIKLAANI, MANOWAR), who previously worked with BATTLE BEAST on 2017's "Bringer Of Pain".
Bassist Eero Sipila told Australia's Heavy about "No More Hollywood Endings": "It's very hard to think that this is already our fifth record. For me, it feels like we have just started and then it feels like we have always done this. As a teenager, I always thought that I would be in a band that would record forever and we would do 20 albums and tour for 40 years, but for me now that is hard to think about because it is such a big number… You just have to write a new album every two years. In our band, there are so many different musical inspirations — we have pop-rock, we have power metal — everybody has different musical inspirations, and we don't want to cut any of those out; we want them all to exist and I think that is what lets our sound evolve and let the sons come together naturally."
