TENGGER CAVALRY Reveals "Independence Day" Video

New Album, Die On My Ride, Out Now

- advertisement -
Global Music Award-winning nomadic folk metal group TENGGER CAVALRY officially released their new album, Die On My Ride, last week via M-Theory Audio, in addition to kicking off their current North American headline tour with support from FELIX MARTIN, MALPHAS, SICOCIS and HELSOTT (see below for dates).

Today, TENGGER CAVALRY is following up with a fast-paced music video for one of the most politically-charged tracks on the new album, entitled "Independence Day". Take a look at the video now on KNAC.COM HERE.

On "Independence Day", the band uses their voice to incite social change and raise awareness in the name of equality. Frontman Nature G says: "Growing up in China and seeing what the regime has done to its citizens to suppress their individuality, free speech and activism through education has awoken me to how other countries and their leaders treat their citizens. These leaders force their people into becoming sheep-like and afraid to stand up to authority. Speaking up and challenging mainstream thought is considered dishonorable.

It saddens me that even coming from brave origins, inhabitants of this country are still letting things slide and pretending as if everything is just fine. We ignore the atrocities happening right in front of us - such as minorities being seen as less than other citizens because of their skin color and those of a different sexual identity being discriminated for just being who they are - and a leader who seems to be passive about it all.

After experiencing life both in China and the US, I decided to write "Independence Day". It is an anthem for anyone who embraces their independent identity, fights for the truth and speaks up against any manipulator. We are all sons and daughters of the sky and we all have the right to decide who we want to become!"

Die On My Ride is available now worldwide in both physical CD and vinyl format via M-Theory Audio or digitally via the band's Bandcamp page. Die On My Ride adds new flavor to the band's celebrated, exotic metal-meets-Mongolian/Central Asian musical influence and lyrical explorations of tradition, history and warfare. The album further delves into topical themes of personally-experienced racial discrimination, identity conflicts and equal rights issues while exploring new sounds and musical influence.

In addition to TENGGER CAVALRY's current North American headline tour, the band will also raid Europe this summer at three different festivals: Ragnard Rock Fest 2017 on July 21 in Simandre-sur-Suran. France, the legendary Wacken Open Air on August 5 in Wacken, Germany, and Midgardsblot Metalfestival on August 19 in Borre, Vestfold, Norway. See below for a full listing of international dates.
