The Halo Effect Debut Music Video For “Become Surrender”


The Halo Effect (Dark Tranquillity, ex-In Flames, etc.) have premiered the studio version of their song “Become Surrender” online. While only now officially making its way out to the public, the group have previously performed it dozens of times live.

Vocalist Mikael Stanne commented:

“‘Become Surrender‘ was written and recorded during the ‘Days Of The Lost‘ sessions, but for some reason we left it out of the album. It has been something we have played during festivals and on our tours and the response has been nothing short of fantastic, so we decided to release it in the interim before we start rolling out singles for the second album.

The video was shot during our sold out show at Pustervik here in our hometown of Gothenburg in front of a few of our closest friends and hopefully the joy and love we felt in the room that night shines through. It’s a song about perseverance over distance and not giving in to despair or doubt. Turn it up!”
