Rising Irish electronic/metal crossover force, Restive Nation have today [April, 28th] released new ’T.O.L.’ visualiser/single. 

Taken from their gripping self-titled LP, Dublin-based Restive Nation continue to show their many sides with their seventh single, which is accompanied by a striking visualiser, created by Very Metal Art [Judas Priest/Mordred/Bloodstock Open Air Festival].

Check out the official ‘T.O.L.’ visualiser below:

TOL’ (or “Tunnel Of Love”) showcases the industrial side of Restive Nation, with elements of steampunk and electronica.

Vocalist Atmahead takes on the vocal reign where he explores the theme of the journey of death, acceptance, and what’s on the other side.

TOL’ is dedicated to Atmahead’s brother, Tony, who sadly left us in 2019. Atmahead says of the track: “Before he flew off I told him he was going to go through a tunnel and on a kind of train journey. I called it the ‘Tunnel of Love‘.”

The track is featured on the bands recently released debut self-titled LP, and is the final single to be taken from the albums collection of tracks.

Their self-titled new album is out now [on all good streaming sites] and is also available for pre-order if you’re a fan of vinyl.

This will be Restive Nation’s debut vinyl pressing, and to celebrate the release, a small batch of pressing will come with a random limited art print [designed by Mainstagedesign] taken from a selection of designs that reflect each track on the album.

You can order your copy here. Stream the full album on Spotify here.
