Revelation, the highly anticipated new album of Swedish root rock figureheads SIENA ROOT, finally hits the shelves via Atomic Fire Records today. Celebrating its release by highlighting another track off the record, a music video for Dusty Roads which was edited by Linus Grane once again (Little Burden) — supported by SIENA ROOT‘s Zubaida Solid (vocals, keys) and Love Forsberg (drums) — has been launched over on YouTube. Watch the video below.
The quartet comment, “Dusty Roads is a song that summarises the theme of the album in both words and sound. It’s a hymn about life on the road and at the same time a farewell to the city. Starting with mellow acoustic tunes, the track develops into a psychedelic heavy rocker just to fade out peacefully.”
But that’s not all: parts of the Revelation videos can also be seen in Wheels Of Revelation – A Road Movie Featuring SIENA ROOT. The 38-minute, album based film premiered last night in Sweden, where the group came together with fans and friends for an exclusive screening event, and can now be watched in cooperation with Firebird Industries (fee: €5).

Fittingly titled Revelation, that’s exactly what the album has become: the group’s most versatile offering in their career long-spanning career, guiding listeners through a real journey instead of simply stringing together song after song. The eleven new tracks were recorded analogously once again at Silence Studio (Koppom, SE) and Root Rock Studios (Stockholm, SE) where they were also mixed before getting mastered at Stockholm‘s Cutting Room.
Check out Velvet Thunder’s review of Revelation.
Founded in the late ’90s, SIENA ROOT have constantly been working on something new, ever-changing their approach and experimenting a lot – not only to keep their music fresh for fans but especially to challenge themselves. An open secret and one of the main reasons for the group being relevant as ever after all these years. Besides touring with acts such as DEEP PURPLE and DEWOLFF, the quartet — longtime/founding members Love Forsberg (drums) and Sam Riffer (bass), completed by guitarist Johan Borgström and multi-talent Zubaida Solid (vocals, keys) — have always been bringing their highly infectious performance to the stages of the world that gained them a very own load of die-hard fans around the globe.
