FATES WARNING's eleventh studio album, "Darkness In A Different Light", registered the following first-week chart positions:
The Netherlands: #90
"Darkness In A Different Light" sold around 2,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD was issued in North America on October 1, 2013 via InsideOut Music.
The "Firefly" video was directed David Solbjørg and Kjetil Kolbjørnsrud of Twitchyfilms.
Alder comments on "Firefly": "I've always liked the romantic concept of the firefly. A tiny flashing creature searching for another on a warm summer night. Like stars that move..."
Featuring founding guitarist Jim Matheos alongside classic-lineup members Ray Alder (vocals) and Frank Aresti (guitar), longtime bassist Joey Vera and drummer Bobby Jarzombek, "Darkness In A Different Light" was produced by Matheos and mixed by longtime FATES WARNING engineer Phil Magnotti.
