Finland’s SINISTHRA featuring Amorphis vocalist Tomi Joutsen are sharing the first single 'Closely Guarded Distance' off their forthcoming album, “The Broad and Beaten Way” due out May 15, 2020 via Rockshots Records.
The band comments about the song: "'Closely Guarded Distance' is the centrepiece of the album and probably the hardest to digest of the whole lot. So we chose it as the first "single". It's some 13 minutes long, divided into three parts. The first phase is the courting, the second phase is the fulfillment and the final phase is aftermath. Musically it's an amalgamation of several half- finished and half- discarded songs we had lying around. I think it represents what Sinisthra is about, with all our main ingredients neatly distilled into one song."
