Experimental rock phenomenon VILLAGERS OF IOANNINA CITY electrifies with their hooky first single, “For the Innocent”, alongside a hypnotic music video. The track appears on the band’s standout album, Age of Aquarius, set to be released physically via Napalm Records on April 3, 2020.

Alex’s crooning, unique vocals accent the sludge-woven first shades of “For the Innocent”, drawing its listener into the track as it progresses into a metallic, psychedelic rock anthem. Gritty blues guitar riffs and driving drums are accented by folk instrument contributions to form a swirling vortex.

Accompanied by mesmerizing visuals, VILLAGERS OF IOANNINA CITY leads the listener through a sunburned aura coalescing with hallucinating images of dreamers and wanderers of mind – The Innocent. Represented by the fans themselves, this added an extra personal touch to the video. In spellbinding mania, the artful kaleidoscopic illusions carry “For the Innocent”.

VILLAGERS OF IOANNINA CITY’s unique synthesis of post, kraut and psychedelic rock influences underlined by a palpable dose of heaviness and Greek folk elements precisely hits the mark.

VILLAGERS OF IOANNINA CITY on “For the Innocent”:
“We are really really happy to present to you our new video clip! Dedicated to all the dreamers, the deviants, the immigrants of life and the wanderers of mind! To all the innocent ones!”
