NEW FIREWIND STUDIO ALBUM"IMMORTALS" SET FOR JANUARY2017 RELEASE!

Greek melodic Power metal masters FIREWIND, are proud to announce the release of their upcoming 8th studio album, ”Immortals”, which will be released on January 20th, 2017 via the band’s longtime label partner Century Media Records in Europe & AFM Records in North America. 

Gus G comments about “Immortals” and its artwork: “Today we're very happy to reveal the cover artwork for our 8th studio album. It's titled "Immortals" and it's the first concept album FIREWIND has ever made. Since we're from Greece, we thought it would be a cool idea to make a concept of Greek history and heritage. So, on this album we focused on the legendary battles of Thermopylae and Salamis during the 2nd Persian invasion of Greece in 480 BC. The artwork was once again created by our longtime collaborator, Gustavo Sazes and we feel it reflects the vibe we tried to capture on this album - Epic, Powerful, Glorious, Everlasting.”

“Immortals” marks the first time FIREWIND used an outside co-producer, working with Dennis Ward (Unisonic, Pink Cream 69), who not only engineered, mixed and mastered the album, but also co-wrote it together with Gus G. The album’s tracklisting reads as follows:

FIREWIND – “Immortals”:

1. Hands Of Time
2. We Defy
3. Ode To Leonidas
4. Back On The Throne
5. Live And Die By The Sword
6. Wars Of Ages
7. Lady Of 1000 Sorrows
8. Immortals
9. Warriors And Saints
10. Rise From The Ashes

Next to the standard jewel case CD and Digital Download formats, “Immortals” will also be released as LP on 180gr vinyl with a poster as well as the entire album on CD as bonus. Additionally, there will also be a limited edition Mediabook CD with expanded booklet, a bonus track and 3 stickers. Look out for more details and pre-order details soon…

A first album’s online single is set to debut on November 25th, but in the meantime you can already check out a few sample riffs in a play-through clip that Gus G. recorded in co-operation with Toontrack’s EZmix 2 and the Metal Guitar Gods 4 EZmix Pack expansion here: https://youtu.be/5E7SFBKYVcU 

In support of the new album, FIREWIND are set to hit the road across Europe and the UK. Those dates as well as some first festival dates confirmed for 2017, can be seen here: http://www.bandsintown.com/firewind

FIREWIND ENTER STUDIO TO RECORD NEW ALBUM; EUROPEAN / UK TOUR POSTPONED TO EARLY 2017; SPECIAL GUESTS ANNOUNCED!

Hi everyone!

We feel it's time to give you an update on what's happening in our world. For the past few months we've been busy composing our 8th album and this week we finally entered the studio to start recording! We're super excited about it, as this is our first recording in 4 years, plus this will be our first album with our new singer Henning Basse (who should not be a stranger to our fans by now).

We've entered Noise Factory Studios in Belgium this week with producer/engineer Dennis Ward (Unisonic, Pink Cream 69, Krokus, etc.) to track drums and it's sounding huge already!

As the schedule  is pretty hectic for the next few months with recordings, finalizing everything, etc. we feel we need time to have  a proper setup for the album release and give it the attention it deserves.

Therefore, we have decided to postpone our UK/European club dates to early 2017. All dates are there and we've even added an extra UK show in Southampton and one more in Strasbourg, France. Moreover, we will have Sweden's MANIMAL as special guests, as well as Greece's SCAR OF THE SUN opening the shows. Tickets already purchased are still valid for the re-scheduled dates. We're sorry for the inconvenience, but we promise it'll be worth the wait!

Our summer festival appearances are still on and we'll be revealing more info on the new album as we go along!
