FIREWIND Forced To Pull Out Of YNGWIE MALMSTEEN U.K. Dates

May 28, 2005

Greek melodic power metal band FIREWIND, featuring former DREAM EVIL guitarist Gus G., have been forced to cancel their previously announced support dates with YNGWIE MALMSTEEN in the U.K. after singer Chity Somapala's (ex-AVALON, FARO) visa application to the U.K. embassy was rejected, according to a posting on the group's web site. "This sounds crazy, but there was nothing we could do about it, it was beyond our powers to make this happen. However, we're already rescheduling dates in the U.K. which will shortly be announced on this site."

FIREWIND's third album, "Forged by Fire", was issued in Europe in January via Century Media Records. A video clip for "Tyranny" was produced and is included as a special bonus enhancement on the final version of the album. A follow-up effort is tentatively scheduled to be recorded this fall.
