Preorder here:

"You search for meaning, search for reason
The truth that is within you comes alive
Renewed awareness arising
Days of substance in reality
Leave the world of mental abstraction
And gaze into the depths of your soul
As a means of solace
As a means of release

Soul adventurer
Wanting to go there
As an inner space traveller
In an internal trance

Travel inside your own dimensions
Soul searching in an inner holy space
Introspective insights
Open the gates to your soul sanctuary
Find your purpose, find your reason
Search for the answers to life’s mysteries
Who are you?
What’s your purpose?
What’s your way to inner peace?

A new dimension of consciousness
The truth that is real in you
Comes alive
To live forever
Leave behind the world of mental abstraction"

Video director Troll Toftenes shares his thoughts on the creative process: “In Vain’s powerful anthem Soul Adventurer takes the listener on a journey through inner spaces of abstract time and focused thought. Imagine an epic mental adventure confined by the strains of physical coma, a place of vast exploration while at the same time standing completely still. I pictured this paradoxical state of mind a deep dark place where gloomy shadows were constantly being bombarded with blindingly bright bursts of light, like flashes of intense neural activity jolting through a hibernating brain. Images of distant memories are flowing through and mixing up with present sensory input, creating a confusing yet coherent mesh of visual context. We wanted to showcase the striking performing presence of the band, so we placed them in the middle of this subconscious rollercoaster ride, creating all the visual effects on location and in camera, to further enhance the sensation of an altered reality and an abstract state of mind.”
