We are also pleased to present you another video clip! Watch the lyric video for the song “Open Sesame” from the new album Monuments, here:

Tobias Sammet comments:

“I am extremely proud of Monuments and the journey that it portrays. ‘Open Sesame’ is a song I wrote after looking back at the journey and my attitude throughout our career. Painting a lyrical picture of the burning ambition that a young musician needs. Armed with a dream, a Casio keyboard and a large amount of Bugs Bunny’s self-confidence. Stuck in the middle of nowhere in Germany but willing to tear down the gate to the magic world of the music business! Ready to sign the first record deal, no matter what the details are. I love this track, not only because I think it’s got great energy, but also because it’s a very autobiographic lyric and it says a lot about the determination you need to make things happen!“

Frontman Tobias Sammet states: “Whilst collecting all of this picture material together we were once again made aware of how proud we are of what we have created. There are probably not many musicians who are lucky enough to be able to look back on a 25-year-old band history at the end of their thirties. And especially without any line-up changes in the last 20 years! This is even more incredible considering that we’re not from Birmingham, New York or a German metropolis but from a small town called Fulda, a place where you normally only know about the insights of the music business by hearsay. I mean, as kids we started to play Edguy shows even before we had visited concerts as fans ourselves! Then we started to play shows outside our home town, then outside Germany and all of a sudden we found ourselves touring in Asia, America and Australia on a regular basis, because apparently there were people who liked our music. And they became more and more. For us, this always felt quite normal, the next step was all that mattered. We didn’t think about what happened while things were happening…

But if you look back now, you will realize how lucky we were! It’s now time to celebrate our anniversary with our fans. We’ll celebrate our quarter century with the release of »Monuments« and LIVE in some selected cities! We’ll perform a best-of set list, a journey throughout our past, with a lot of fuss and at full throttle! The first quarter century is over and we want to honor these years with our fans! To the next 25 years!”
