FIREWIND Guitarist Issues UK Tour Recap

Guitarist Gus G. of the Greek heavy metal band FIREWIND has issued the following update:

"So, we're back from our UK tour! This was a very smooth nine-date run for us and we are very happy with how the whole thing went down!

"To start with, we had two killer bands with us: KIUAS and DEAR SUPERSTAR. All very nice guys and good live bands! Our crew was top-notch and amazing people. So if the foundation is right, the rest can be a piece of cake. Right? Well, actually our feelings were mixed up. Stressed and excited. We didn't know what to expect, as this is only the second time we were headlining in the UK and many of these places we visited for the first time. We didn't know if anyone would turn up for these gigs.

"But we were in for a surprise. All shows were packed with our crazy fans (some sold out) and you guys have proved that the UK has some of the most hardcore FIREWIND fans, if not THE most hardcore!

"If you ask me for highlights, I don't know what to choose from. Nottingham and Glasgow were insane, as always, Dublin has a special place in our hearts after such a warm welcome on our debut show, Manchester, Leeds and Wolverhampton were louder than hell, London was stressy but beautiful as always and Milton Keynes and Peterborough were great to wrap it up, even though we felt we just started getting on fire!"

"Head Up High", the new video from FIREWIND, can be viewed below. The track comes off the group's latest album, "The Premonition", which was released in Japan on June 25 through King Records. The LP was made available on a limited-edition CD+DVD including four songs from the band's acclaimed hometown show in Thessaloniki on January 12, 2008, plus in-depth interviews with all bandmembers. In addition, the album contains three bonus tracks: "Ride To The Rainbow's End", "Spirits In A Digital World" and "Mercenary Man" (acoustic version).

FIREWIND's "Mercenary Man" single entered the Greek chart at position No. 6.
