Italian 70’s hard rockers WITCHWOOD just released “Handful Of Stars” official video. The song is the title track of their new album to be released by Jolly Roger Records on November 18 2016.
“We are very happy to introduce you this piece of art, made by our friend Dimitri Corradini, renowned artist and bass player of the Italian death metal band DISTRUZIONE. He created an amazing mix between music and images. We are astonished and we hope you like it. Have a nice journey!”, states the band.
“‘Handful Of Stars’ represents an hypothetical band’s cycle as it contains also music based on ideas developed during the recording sessions of ‘Litanies From The Woods’, but left behind because that album was already almost 80 minutes length”, comments Ricky Dal Pane.
“There are 3 unreleased songs and a tribute to two of our favourite bands of all time: ‘Flaming Telepaths’ from Blue Öyster Cult and ‘Rainbow Demon’ from Uriah Heep.
We also added an extended version of the song ‘Handful Of Stars’.
This is a very well curated album and it’s full of interesting material. It’s not just a filler between two full-length albums as its length is 45 minutes. We are very happy about it and we hope our fans won’t be disappointed”.
“Handful of Stars” is the right way to celebrate the appreciations received for the debut album and to introduce the new guitar player Antonino Stella, appreciated session man and long time Ricky’s friend. The new video clip for the title track, made by the artist Dimitri Corradini, will be available soon.
The album will be available as yellow LP limited to 100 copies, LP, CD, and boxset CD + tshirt + sticker limited to 100
