ELEINE unveil epic digital single 'Never Forget' to kick off "American Full Moon" North American tour / MOONSPELL on April 29th
new album "We Shall Remain" to be released on July 14th, 2023 via Atomic Fire Records


Times are hard, we know. And while Tina Turner may have declared some time ago that we don't need another hero, the opposite seems to be true. We need heroes, we need anthems, we need perseverance. And fast! Luckily for us, ELEINE have heard the call and deliver their new digital single 'Never Forget' today: Starting with a heavy, thrashy riff which instantly drives the song forward and leads to a mighty chorus, the song is the perfect paradigm of the speed and epic vibe of their new album »We Shall Remain« which will be released on July 14th, 2023 via Atomic Fire Records.

"Have you ever met someone who has scarred you? Made you doubt yourself? Maybe even made your life a living hell? We all have in one way or another. But the most important part of experiencing something inevitable like this is to remember your own worth. It's not about you, but you can evolve and learn from the situation itself. 

Rise up. Accept what has been. Move forward and cut the strings attached to anyone who really doesn't give you anything else but a headache. In the end, we're all facing the same fate. Make sure your life along the way has as less toxic people as possible and make sure you are in charge of YOUR own life," comment the band.


"Watch as I rise.
Reclaim my life.
Under the darkest of skies.
Scars will remain, signed by your name. 
Never forget, we're the same."
ELEINE - Never Forget (2023)
