Kamelot returns with a sci-fi inspired thriller for the song Insomnia. In a post apocalyptic world, surveillance is everywhere and over population is rampant. Deep in the underground of the Wasteland Monarchy lies the Insomnia Division, the housing for some of the chosen ones, only allowed to live in an Insomniatic state.
“Insomnia” is on Kamelot’s new album Haven, due for release May 4th, 2015. It is available for pre-order now at Napalm Records Webstore in multiple Ltd editions and special bundles. Official Pre-Order Website is www.kamelothaven.com.
