Allegaeon Debut Powerful New Video for “Called Home”
In February of this year, Allegaeon released their latest album, DAMNUM. The title means “loss” in Latin and consequently, the lyrical themes mark a deviation from the band’s previous sci-fi/science-based output. Track number six from the album, “Called Home,” may be the most emotional and powerful example of that theme on the album. That song is now accompanied by a new video, which can be seen here: youtu.be/dtgCCzfBqfk
Guitarist Greg Burgess comments on the concept of the song and video: “Over the last few years people around the world have experienced immeasurable loss and grief. This song and this video is a representation of a personal experience. By sharing this story we hope that it brings some sense of peace to anyone who has shared in a similar experience, and to possibly throw a lifeline to someone out there who may be suffering. You are not alone.“
