EVERGREY's 'Wrong' Single Certified Gold In Sweden
"Wrong", the first single from "Glorious Collision", the latest album from Swedish metallers EVERGREY, was certified gold in the band's home country for sales in excess of 10,000 copies. This marks EVERGREY's first award in Sweden as well the first award for Steamhammer/SPV in a Scandinavian country.
The "Wrong" video was directed by Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company, who has previously worked with DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL, IN FLAMES, SONIC SYNDICATE and KAMELOT, among many others.
Commented EVERGREY frontman Tom Englund: "Once again Patric Ullaeus and the Revolver film crew made five stupid guys from Sweden look like a million dollars; well, maybe not like a million, but for sure better than the 20-dollar hookers we normally look like.
"The song will give all dark, tough and depressed people a soundtrack and most certainly a legit reason to cry your hearts out.
"If crying is not your thing, see if you're man enough to match that guitar solo. Or you can just enjoy the vid and the damn song!"
"Wrong" comes off EVERGREY's new album, "Glorious Collision", which was released in February via Steamhammer/SPV.
