Royal Thunder have been pushing the limits of hard rock for over 10 years. Each new release shows a different side of the genre, and all the tones, hues and sounds it can produce. This April, they're dropping their new record, Wick, and today you can see their "April Showers" video. In the clip, a businessman is slowly losing his mind (as most of their ilk usually do at some point) while trapped in a well. He starts to get pulled in a bunch of different directions amid a strange snow, and eventually gets thrown out to a forest, where he's forced to confront several different versions of himself. This is all interspersed with footage of the band playing, probably a couple of wells over. The song is bluesy and focused, singer Mlny Parsonz' voice a strong river of howls and fire. It's a rocky beauty, the band writing a song that's heavy, but not in the ways you'd expect.

Watch "April Showers" below, and pre-order Wick, out April 7 on Spinefarm.
