BROTHER FIRETRIBE: 'Runaways' Lands On Finnish Chart

"Runaways", the single from BROTHER FIRETRIBE the Finnish AOR/hard rock band featuring NIGHTWISH guitarist Emppu Vuorinen has entered the Finnish chart at position No. 6.

An audio "teaser" for BROTHER FIRETRIBE's upcoming second studio album, "Heart Full Of Fire", has been posted on the group's MySpace page.

"Heart Full Of Fire" is scheduled for release on April 2, 2008 via Spinefarm Records. A single, "Runaways", backed by a cover version of "Chasing The Angels" (from the "Iron Eagle 2" soundtrack) will precede the full-length CD on February 27.

"Heart Full Of Fire" was produced by keyboard player Tomppa Nikulainen and Vuorinen, and sees the band pushing its AOR-influenced style to even greater heights. Among those tracks featured are "I Am Rock" (already a single in Finland), "Chasing The Angels" plus the title track itself, complete with suitably "foxy" vocals from NIGHTWISH singer Anette Olzon. The CD was mixed by Torsti Spoof and Jari Mikkola at Studio Audio. Mastering duties were handled by Svante Forsbck at Chartmakers Studios.

Founded by five Finnish musicians with a deep regard for all-conquering U.S. heavyweights such as JOURNEY and VAN HALEN, the band also featuring LEVERAGE frontman Pekka Ansio Heino released its debut album, "Break Out", back in 2006. A 10-track affair built around melody-conscious rockers such as "I'm On Fire", "Valerie" and first single/video "One Single Breath", the record instantly caused a stir with the quality of its songwriting and the energy of its excecution.
