Finnish rockers Von Hertzen Brothers has released a lyric video for “Long Lost Sailor” from their latest record War Is Over. The band has been on fire, pretty much for the last decade, with the release of several number 1 and Top 5 albums in their homeland and touring across Europe with bands such as the Foo Fighters, 30 Seconds to Mars, Neil Young, Biffy Clyro, The Wildhearts and ZZ Top to Anathema and Opeth.
To write the new album, brothers Mikko, Kie and Jonne von Hertzen took time to write separately. “Our family has a summer cottage outside Helsinki,” explained Kie. “All three of us would take turns to withdraw and head up there to write music. It’s a beautiful place in the inner Archipelago of the Eastern Sea. It’s where we used to spend our childhood summer’s, so all of us have a deep and personal connection to the place. The main part of composing happens there in total peace and quiet.”
