[News] Kamelot reveal enchanting music video for new track “New Babylon” featuring Melissa Bonny

Kamelot recently released their most introspective, uplifting, vital release to date – their first full-length in five years, “The Awakening.” The album, which debuted at #2 on the US Current Hard Music Albums chart and #27 on the Current Album Sales chart, connected with fans and critics alike – touted by many as the best late-era Kamelot release to date!

The band is thrilled to reveal an exciting new live music video for the new fan-favorite anthem “New Babylon,” featuring none other than the enchanting Melissa Bonny (Ad InfinitumThe Dark Side Of The Moon). The new video features high quality live footage from the band’s recent European tour, adding an electrifying touch to the track’s already massive sound.

Kamelot founder and guitarist Thomas Youngblood states:

Melissa Bonny joined us on this new album and massive tour, and she has been amazing to say the least. We are really excited to have her in this new video and also on the upcoming tour in North America!”
