Kamelot Release Single Featuring Melissa Bonny
Modern heavy symphonic metal leaders, KAMELOT, recently released their most introspective, uplifting, vital release to date - their first full-length in five years, The Awakening, via Napalm Records. The album, which debuted at #2 on the US Current Hard Music Albums chart and #27 on the Current Album Sales chart, connected with fans and critics alike - touted by many as the best late-era KAMELOT release to date.
Today, the band are thrilled to reveal an exciting new live music video for the new fan-favourite anthem 'New Babylon', featuring none other than the enchanting Melissa Bonny (Ad Infinitum, The Dark Side Of The Moon). The new video features high quality live footage from the band's recent European tour, adding an electrifying touch to the track's already massive sound.

KAMELOT founder and guitarist Thomas Youngblood states:
"Melissa Bonny joined us on this new album and massive tour, and she has been amazing to say the least. We are really excited to have her in this new video and also on the upcoming tour in North America!"
This new video arrives on the heels of KAMELOT's recent announcement of their 2023 "Awaken The World" North American headline tour, featuring special guests Battle Beast and additional support from labelmates Xandria. The tour kicks off in Silver Spring, MD on 17th August, visiting several major cities in the US and Canada before coming to an end on 9th September in Orlando, FL. The band will also perform at Sweden Rock Festival on 8th June.New album The Awakening enters the KAMELOT legacy as their most massive and diverse offering yet - mixing symphonic, gothic, melodic, progressive and power metal styles while yielding some of the heaviest tracks in the band's history. Having reigned supreme with the release of internationally top-charting melodic metal pinnacles such as The Fourth Legacy (1999), The Black Halo (2005), Silverthorn (2012), Haven (2015, #1 US Hard Rock Albums), and most recently 2018’s acclaimed The Shadow Theory (#2 US Hard Music Albums), KAMELOT’s intense brand of ultramodern gothic and symphonic theatricality is amplified further and with more emotionality than ever on The Awakening. Showcasing the incomparable, stage-seasoned vocal acrobatics of Tommy Karevik and increasingly airtight, renowned technical teamwork of guitarist Thomas Youngblood, drummer Alex Landenburg, keyboardist Oliver Palotai and bassist Sean Tibbetts, KAMELOT’s score-like 13th studio album is accented by guest contributions from the likes of Melissa Bonny (Ad Infinitum) and renowned instrumentalists like violinist Florian Janoske and cellist Tina Guo. The Awakening features crystal clear modern production helmed by the band and longtime producer Sascha Paeth, plus mixing and mastering by Jacob Hansen of Hansen Studios.
