FIREWIND To Enter Studio This Summer

FIREWIND To Enter Studio This Summer

Greek melodic power metal masters FIREWIND, the group led by guitar wizard and former OZZY OSBOURNE bandmember Gus G., have signed a worldwide deal with the German metal label AFM Records.

The collaboration between FIREWIND and AFM already started with the band's last album, "Immortals", which AFM released in the North American territory. Subsequently, Gus signed with AFM for the release his solo albums.

Gus states: "After working together with AFM Records on my latest solo album, 'Fearless', and seeing the great results that were achieved, the passion and care they put into the project, it felt natural to extend our partnership and bring FIREWIND under the same roof. This is something I'm very excited about and I'm also happy to announce that we're already working on the follow-up of 'Immortals'. We plan to enter the studio after our summer tour with QUEENSRĊ¸CHE wraps up in August. Stay tuned for further announcements!"

"Fearless" was released in April 2018. The follow-up to 2015's "Brand New Revolution" marked Gus's first release since exiting Osbourne's band in 2017.

On "Fearless", Gus joined forces with vocalist/bassist Dennis Ward (PINK CREAM 69, UNISONIC) and drummer Will Hunt (EVANESCENCE).

"Immortals" marked the first time FIREWIND used an outside co-producer, having worked with Ward, who not only engineered, mixed and mastered the album, but also co-wrote it together with Gus. The disc was also FIREWIND's first release with singer Henning Basse (METALIUM, SONS OF SEASONS), who previously toured with the band on various continents in 2007 and was the singer in Gus's solo touring group.
