Artist News: Firewind Breeze Their Way To The US

Posted on Sunday, April 22 @ 21:36:40 UTC by nightowl

This fall, Firewind pledges their allegiance to their U.S. fans by scheduling their first ever trip Stateside. This Greek metal powerhouse is set to kick things off on Sept. 19th by performing alongside Epica and Visions of Atlantis, which will be immediately followed by a week long headlining run, leading them into a limited number of shows with Sonata Arctica. The U.S. tour will ultimately be capped off with a performance at the prestigious ProgPower festival.

Gus G. (guitars) states: "I'm very excited about coming to the U.S. with Firewind for the first time! We will be doing a few shows supporting Sonata Arctica, as well as a couple of one offs supporting Epica and Edguy. To top it off we'll even get to play a few headline shows before wrapping it up at the now sold out ProgPower festival in Atlanta. We are all really looking forward to this and hope to see you all soon."

Firewind's new video for the track "Falling To Pieces" was shot by acclaimed director Patric Ullaeus (Lacuna Coil, In Flames, Dimmu Borgir). The track comes from their highly acclaimed new album, Allegiance, which is a must for any fan of Dragonforce, Iced Earth, Hammerfall or anyone who claims to be a heavy metal fanatic. www.youtube.com/profile?user=FireTV.
