FIREWIND guitarist Gus G. has posted the following message on the band's official web site:
"Gus G. here, we"re back from the European tour now. All shows went great and were sold out!! Unbelievable! It was so nice to meet many of you after the shows and hang out and I hope we"ve made some new fans. A big thanx to HAMMERFALL for having us on the tour, as well as THUNDERSTONE, LORDI, PRETTY MAIDS and All Access agency and crew.
"So, our next step here is to start writing new songs for the next FIREWIND album and hopefully enter the studio sometime this fall. In the meantime, we hope to do some more dates in Europe, but more on that later.
"And finally we are very close to releasing 'Forged by Fire' in America!! More info on which label and release date, coming soon."
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.
