BATTLE BEAST second single 'Familiar Hell' + tour opening act!

Five weeks remain until Finnish heavy metallers, BATTLE BEAST, will unleash their 4th studio album, Bringer Of Pain, through Nuclear Blast Records. After the release of the first single, 'King For A Day', and the first album trailer before Christmas, it's time for their first strike in 2017: Today, the band has launched another music video for 'Familiar Hell', the second single taken from Bringer Of Pain. 

Check out the clip, once again directed and produced by Markus Nieminen (Oy Routafilmi AB), over on YouTube: 

Bassist Eero Sipilä commented:
"'Familiar Hell' is probably our bravest adventure into hard rock territory thus far, displaying yet another side of the »Bringer Of Pain« album. The unholy alliance of the crunching riff and catchy chorus makes the song an obvious candidate for a single. For the video we did around 12 hours of shooting outside in late December, most of the time wearing nothing but our stage clothes. If that sounds cold or unpleasant to you, that's because it was. Luckily it didn't rain - a lot. For all the pains we suffered to make this video, we definitely hope you will enjoy it!"

BATTLE BEAST are also pleased to announce Japanese melodic death metallers GYZE will be the opening act for their upcoming Bringer Of Pain Over Europe 2017 tour with German metallers MAJESTY tour. For this tour, a new show in Wroclaw, Poland has also been confirmed recently. BATTLE BEAST have also been announced for more festivals, the entire itinerary can be found below!
