The Coronas Roll Out Provocative New Video for “Haunted” Single Ahead of April North American Tour and First New Album in Three Years Arriving May 29

The Coronas, one of Ireland’s biggest and best-loved bands, are set for the worldwide release of ‘TRUE LOVE WAITS’, their first album in three years. The band’s long-awaited sixth album will be available via the band’s SoFarSoGood Records imprint, distributed by Blix Street Records, on May 29, 2020.

The Coronas—front man and lead singer Danny O’Reilly, bass guitarist Graham Knox and drummer Conor Egan–have embarked on 2020 as a three-piece band following the amicable departure of lead guitarist Dave McPhillips at the end of the year and recently rolled out the single “Haunted” as a prelude to the new album. Known for their visually captivating music videos, the latest one for ‘Haunted’, shot in a seemingly abandoned cabin accessible by trudging through the deep snows of Bulgaria’s winter, is yet another example of the band’s creative vision. This cinematic feast was produced by Luke Murphy and directed by John Broe, who has made several of The Coronas’ videos over the past three years.

In this video, as Broe explains,

“We see a guy (Graham) who’s been alone for a long time, travelling day after day to some location, but we aren’t sure why. He may be delusional, he may have magic powers or there may be a presence in the room with him guiding him, but we know there is some link between the powers in the house and the portal that opens on the mountain. It brings up a few obvious metaphors, but again it’s not for me to say…”
