IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT drops video for new Radiohead cover, “Paranoid Android”; prepares to kick off European tour and festival run next week

Single Artwork by: Alek Kalabalov (@metalligatorrr)

Avantgarde metal trio Imperial Triumphant has dropped a new single via Century Media Records: a cover of the Radiohead classic, “Paranoid Android”! The first of a series of covers, the video for “Paranoid Android” (created by Above the Void//@abovethevoidmtl) can be seen now here:
Zachary Ezrin (vocals, guitar) comments: “We are huge fans of Radiohead and their ethos. We feel that Radiohead have a diverse and unique approach to song craft and lyricism that we have always gravitated towards, and the song ‘Paranoid Android’ lays out a perfect canvas for us to play and create with.
“The artwork, created by Alek Kalabalov, exquisitely blends the aesthetics of both bands seamlessly.
“It was a pleasure reinterpreting this great rock classic, and we hope you find it immensely pleasurable.”

European fans will be able to catch Imperial Triumphant on the road starting next week, where the band will be performing at some of the biggest festivals this summer, in addition to special shows with Behemoth and Author & Punisher. See below for all dates!
