ANCIENT BARDS – New video clip “In My Arms”
Ancient Bards, Limb Music and Rockshots Music Management are proud to present the videoclip of “In My Arms”, the first single extracted from “A New Dawn Ending”, the band’s new album, to be released on on April 25th in Europe and Japan and on June 10th in North America.
“In My Arms” is the dejected and resigned inner cry of queen Shena, her aching eyes, now witnessing the awful duel between Daltor and Sendor, are the same that saw her son Surod (Dorus) pass away 16 years ago.
