Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the release of the new studio album, Tectonic from Amanda Somerville’s TRILLIUM on June 8th!

Best known for her collaborations with various high profile European metal bands like AVANTASIA, EPICA, KAMELOT, AFTER FOREVER, and her amazing musical partnership with HELLOWEEN vocalist Michael Kiske under the KISKE/SOMERVILLE banner, Amanda Somerville is easily one of the most sought after and gifted female vocalists of the current hard rock and metal scene. With a vocal range from tenor to soprano and a stylistically diverse singing ability, Amanda’s voice is well suited for multiple styles, but this new TRILLIUM album is firmly rooted in the metal genre, thanks also to the creative contribution from Amanda’s husband, former AFTER FOREVER and HDK guitarist Sander Gommans.

"Where [TRILLIUM debut album] Alloy was rather dark and moody and restless, Tectonic is on the whole more uplifting and full of strength and character, though it’s just as full of emotion,” explains Amanda. "My life was shaken up by figurative earthquakes through several elements shifting in recent years and that’s what this album represents. It’s a challenge to make an album that’s musically heavy without being dragged down by melancholy, but that’s what Sander and I set out to do from the beginning and it worked out beautifully!”

Amanda continues, “The core and essence of Tectonic is very personal and comes, basically, from the hearts and minds of a singer and a guitar player and I think that’s very apparent when you listen to the songs. Sander and I didn’t want to overthink things and over-complicate the songs. There’s definitely some bombast in there because we both have a love of keyboard arrangements, but they don’t rule the roost here. Also, the only guest performances are by good friends from my hometown in Flint, Michigan who also played live with me solo and with TRILLIUM, and also some great mates and colleagues of Sander’s, so it’s really a “family” kind of album. We tried to keep things simple, and yet I think it’s anything but low-key!”

Today, the first song and video, "Time To Shine" from the album has been premiered, and you can watch it now on KNAC.COM HERE.

"The focus for the video was something where I wanted to show the essence of the album’s hopeful and uplifting spirit. “Time To Shine” depicts that positivity while maintaining a serious, hard-edge vibe, so it’s a good combination of the elements that I love about Tectonic. Besides being autobiographical, I feel like this is a song that says, “OK, I’ve arrived and it’s where I want to be: here I am, now let’s keep it going,” says Amanda.

Fans of TRILLIUM’s debut album, Alloy as well as artists like THE DARK ELEMENT, TARJA, CELLAR DARLING, LACUNA COIL, and the like will find much to enjoy in this beautiful new record!
