"Love Tyger", the new video from German melodic metallers EDGUY, can be seen below. The clip is, as the band puts, it the "most different video clip we actually never shot!"
"Love Tyger" is taken from EDGUY's tenth studio album, "Space Police - Defenders Of The Crown", which will be released on April 18 via Nuclear Blast. In addition to the regular CD edition, the follow-up to 2011's "Age Of The Joker" will be made available as a limited digibook containing two CDs. Also available will be a strictly limited hardcover earbook collectors' edition (28.5x28.5cm) containing the two discs, a photographic history with more than 130 photos from the band's archive, liner notes, touring history, and more.
In a recent interview with RockRevolt magazine, Sammet stated about the making of "Space Police - Defenders Of The Crown": "I had been doing this huge tour with my all-star project AVANTASIA, playing three continents with a 12-piece band. When I came back [home] in August 2013, it just felt great to get back in the studio and write something to the point. No sophisticated TRANS-SIBERIAN-esque rock opera with conceptual stuff and guest vocals; I just wanted to produce a high-velocity heavy metal album with my bandmates. I guess the starvation for that turned the album into the monster it has become. It is so fresh, so heavy, so anthemic, the playing and production are outstanding, I guess it was because we forced a very tight schedule upon us, so we didn't have too much time to doubt, second-guess or fix things that didn't need to be retouched."
He added: "I really love the album; it's got so many beautiful details, so many smart elements, but down the line, it comes over you like a tank. I love it, and yes, I knew if we'd channel our skills, we could come up with something. This band has been existing for more than 22 years, and we still haven't reached our peak in a creative way."
