Icelandic classic rock trio The Vintage Caravan are set to release their highly-anticipated 4th studio album Gateways on August 31st, 2018 via Nuclear Blast. The band has now released the video for the opening track, “Set Your Sights”.

Bassist Alexander Örn comments, “We’re very happy to present our new single, “Set Your Sights”. This is the opening track from the new album. We wanted to start off the record with something epic! This song was the first one we started working on for the album, and it really set the tone for the rest of the songs. It‘s accompanied by a trippy new visual video by Viennese artist Max Roehrle. We’re quite proud of this one and hope you like it!”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
