SPIRITUAL BEGGARS: New video, "Wise As A Serpent"!

Sweden's classic rock heavyweights SPIRITUAL BEGGARS are now premiering the video clip for "Wise As A Serpent"; the opening track of the band's stunning new album "Earth Blues".

Head over to the website of the good people at Roadburn Festival, where SPIRITUAL BEGGARS are set to perform on April 21st, 2013 as part of their Afterburner event. Now check out the vibrant clip:

The band's guitarist and main songwriter, Michael Amott, checked in to comment on the clip as follows: "We chose this particular song as the first video off "Earth Blues" 'cos it's an explosive track and also the shortest song on the album! I filmed and directed the video myself and Anders Björler (At The Gates) did a great job on the edit. We're more than pleased with the end result, it's done in true DIY spirit...raw and authentic".

"Earth Blues" is the band's 8th studio release and marks SPIRITUAL BEGGARS' 20th anniversary as a band. The album will be released on April 15th, 2013 in Europe and April 16th in North America via InsideOutMusic. You can read some more details about the album here.

Next to the standard CD and Digital Download versions, "Earth Blues" will be also available in Europe as limited Mediabook 2CD and as Gatefold 2LP, both including the 8 live-tracks from the band's "Return To Live" Mini-Album, which were never previously released outside of Japan, as special bonus.
