The Greek metallic powerhouse Firewind, led by the modern day guitar hero Gus G, is currently preparing for a slew of activity over the course of the next few months. The group is set to release a new digital single for the stunning song, “Embrace The Sun,” on March 15th, which will also feature the much anticipated video for the track shot by acclaimed director Patric Ullaeus (Dimmu Borgir, In Flames). This comes off their latest album, Days of Defiance, which is an epic, exhilarating rollercoaster of melodic metal proficiency coupled with a barrage of jaw-dropping guitar-work that will leave you breathless.
Firewind is currently working on putting together a massive North American touring package for the fall, so stay tuned to www.facebook.com/firewindofficial for a big announcement over the coming weeks.
Firewind have also recently been confirmed to appear with the song “World On Fire” as part of a new ten-song mega pack in February for Activision Publishing’s "Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock" alongside Children Of Bodom, Black Label Society and many others.
