VINTERSEA recently completed their tour supporting Moonspell, Eleine and Oceans of Slumber and captured some footage of the band performing live, as well as their travels. It can all be experienced in the Portland-based group’s latest video, “Lonesome Tide,” so watch HERE
“Our recent tour with Moonspell, Eleine, and Oceans of Slumber was special, and I thought capturing as much as I could would allow us to not only showcase a song but also show off how much we love touring and meeting our fans,” tells bassist Karl Whinnery.
“Lonesome Tide” is one of my favorite tracks on the album – it starts with all the emotions in the vocal performance and then breaks open and goes on a rollercoaster of a journey. We played it live every night of the tour, and it was a fan favorite every show! All the love from VINTERSEA to you.”
“We are lucky enough to have a professional videographer in the tour van with us on every tour – and even though sometimes we don’t have as much time as we’d like to pull over and shoot the beautiful places we see, Karl was able to capture some of the magnificent places we visited in this video,” further explains guitarist Riley Nix.
“This was our first time visiting Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and British Columbia, and it was eye-opening and humbling to see how many of you came out to see us in cities we had never visited before. We hope this video serves as a love letter to our fans all over the world, because we are coming for you next!”
“Lonesome Tide” is the quintet’s fourth music video from their current album, ‘Woven Into Ashes,” following “Into the Horizon” https://youtu.be/je7hjjwrGug, “Unveiling Light” https://youtu.be/dmWX0Fm8ttE and “At the Gloaming Void” https://youtu.be/y-ztBVt8xXg giving a broad sample of the majesty and breadth of the band’s third opus harnessing progressive, melodic and blackened tendencies into a profoundly unique vision.
‘Woven Into Ashes” has been met with strong sales, high critical and fan praise, as well as support from metal radio. Released in May on CD and Digital, a limited 2LP vinyl pressing will be in stores August 11th with 500 copies on gilded rain colored vinyl.

VINTERSEA create a unique fusion of majestic progressive metal with harsh blackened death and post-metal beauty which draws inspiration from the darkened skies of their Pacific Northwest home. Fronted by Malaysian-born singer Avienne, whose vocal range spans from haunting melodies to fierce growls, VINTERSEA delivers heavy, emotionally powerful and technically intriguing music that is undeniably inspired by the majesty of their surroundings. The group built an organic and devoted following through impeccable and illustrious music videos (with combined views of almost 3 million), social media outreach and tours with Dawn of Ouroboros, Graveshadow and Voices of Ruin, as well as playing regionally opening for Fleshgod Apocalypse, Obscura, Thulcandra, Wolfheart, Ne Obliviscaris, Jinger, The Ocean, Arkona and Sirenia. Now armed with a stellar new album, proper management and booking agent we are all excited to begin the next album campaign and relish in the growth and further appreciation for this noteworthy young band.
