Australia’s Victoria K is sharing their new video for “The Haunting” in support of their forthcoming debut album Essentia – due out April 24, 2020 via Rockshots Records. The full length was produced by Lee Bradshaw and features special guest Michalina Malisz (Eluveitie).

The band comments about the song: “‘The Haunting‘ is about a tortured past that relentlessly plays on your thoughts and keeps you captive at that point in time. These memories and thoughts haunt you continuously until you can learn to let go of them, if you ever can. Only when you do let go of these torturing thoughts and feelings can you actually move forward again.”
