While hard rock power metal titans Firewind are not only currently gearing up for the release of their brand new, forthcoming studio album “Stand United”, but also an extensive tour throughout Europe, the US & Canada, the UK and Japan, today, the band is presenting a lyric video for their latest single, the powerful hard rock anthem “Chains”!
Stand United will be available as CD, LP Vinyl, digital formats and highly collectable bundles including an autographed card, a Firewind cat patch plus a ticket for the band’s upcoming European tour with Masterplan! For every ticket bundle purchase, fans will also get the chance to win a Meet&Greet.
About their new single, “Chains”, iconic guitarist and Firewind mastermind Gus G (Ozzy Osbourne, Arch Enemy, Dream Evil), says:
“This is the last single we put out as we’re getting closer to the “Stand United” album release. It’s leaning more towards the melodic hard rock side of Firewind. We hope you enjoy this track and get excited about the upcoming release! See you on the road soon!”
Since more than twenty years, Firewind enthrall heavy music fans with their exciting blend of hard rock and power metal. Razor-sharp riffs by Gus G, big hooks and solos meet the incredible vocal skills of charismatic singer Herbie Langhans (Avantasia, Radiant, Seventh Avenue, amongst others).
Stand United features nine brand new songs produced with Dennis Ward (Magnum, Unisonic), as well as a cover of the 80s pop rock classic ‘Talking in Your Sleep’, originally recorded by The Romantics but giving it a metal twist in the style of Firewind. Their forthcoming studio offering also bears testament to the band’s sheer enthusiasm and lyrical topics that could not be more relevant.
“I wouldn’t exactly call ‘Stand United’ a classic concept album, but the album title indicates what we’re about thematically,” Gus G, who has also contributed with more lyric ideas on this one than any album before, said earlier. “This world seems to be getting more and more out of balance, what with environmental disasters, the pandemic, the wars currently raging all over the globe. In such times, it’s more important than ever for mankind to stand close together instead of fighting each other. That’s what ‘Stand United’ is about!”
