Greek melodic metallers Firewind have announced that they are hitting the studio to record their eight studio album and as a result have rescheduled their UK and European tour dates.
The band’s guitar god and member of Ozzy Osbourne‘s band, Gus G says; “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!”
