Check the latest preview from the band's forthcoming album, The Black, due out this April.

Imminence, the innovative alternative metalcore band from Sweden, is making waves barreling toward the release of their new album The Black, set to drop on April 12. Known for their unique blend of classical strings and Scandinavian metal, Imminence is expanding the boundaries of heavy music, crafting an auditory experience that is both captivating and pioneering.

The Black represents a significant milestone for Imminence, showcasing a deep dive into a darker, more orchestral sound. This album, described by vocalist and violinist Eddie Berg as a reflection of the band's identity, promises to be their most conceptual and expressive work yet. With themes revolving around mental health and depression, the album explores the contrasts between light and darkness, offering a raw and unapologetic testament to the band's evolution.

Today, Imminence has shared the video for their stunning track "Continuum," which is rife crushing intensity. The band, consisting of Eddie Berg, guitarists Harald Barrett and Alex Arnoldsson, drummer Peter Hanström, and bassist Christian Höijer, continues to push the envelope with their music and visuals, establishing themselves as true pioneers in the genre.

Imminence's journey to The Black has been marked by a series of successful singles since June 2023, achieving millions of streams and a rapidly growing social media following. These tracks have highlighted the band's innovative approach and their venture into new musical territories, solidifying their position as leaders in the alternative scene.

In addition to the album, Imminence has announced a U.S. tour this spring, marking a significant chapter in their career. The tour follows the band's first-ever sold-out North American tour, demonstrating their rising popularity on the international stage. The tour includes stops in major cities and performances at renowned festivals like Sonic Temple and Welcome to Rockville, promising an unforgettable experience for fans.

Imminence's decision to release The Black independently reflects their commitment to creative freedom and artistic control. This move, according to guitarist Harald Barrett, emphasizes the band's DIY ethos and the success they've achieved through their own vision and hard work. It also serves as an inspiration to emerging artists, encouraging them to pursue their dreams with dedication and independence.

As Imminence prepares to embark on their 2024 touring schedule, their impact on the music scene continues to grow. With four full-length studio albums, over 220 million streams, and a strong online presence, Imminence is poised for another monumental year. Their return to the U.S. and appearances at major festivals worldwide underline their status as one of the most exciting and innovative acts in today's music scene.
