Watch Nightwish perform ‘Slaying The Dreamer’ live


Nightwish have released a video showcasing their track Slaying The Dreamer.

It’s the latest track to be taken from the band’s Decades: Live In Buenos Aires – which will be out on December 6 through Nuclear Blast.

The performance was captured at the Argentinian city’s Estadio Malvinas on September 30, 2018, and the package will be released on 2CD Digipak, 3LP, Blu-ray Digibook and BluRay/2CD.

Speaking about the Decades tour, Keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen said: “I didn’t just want to pick out the most successful Nightwish songs for this tour. Instead, I asked myself which songs I would play to somebody who had never heard of our band. 

“At some point during the preparation process, I realised that I was smiling all the time. I remembered the curious, innocent boy writing all of these songs.”

Nightwish will head out on tour across Europe in late 2020 with special guests Turmion Kätilöt. The band are expected to release their new studio album in 2020 which will be their first since 2015’s Endless Forms Most Beautiful.     —Louder Sound
