Hard rock power metal titans Firewind have announced a brand new studio album, titled Stand United, for a release on March 1 via AFM Records.
To give fan the first taste of what's to come, the band has shared the first single, the album opening track "Salvation Day".
Stand United will be available as CD, LP vinyl, digital formats, and highly collectable bundles including an autographed card, a Firewind cat patch, plus a ticket for the band's upcoming European tour with Masterplan. Check all those options here.
"I wouldn't exactly call 'Stand United' a classic concept album, but the album title indicates what we're about thematically,” explains guitarist Gus G., who has also contributed with more lyric ideas on this one than any album before. "This world seems to be getting more and more out of balance, what with environmental disasters, the pandemic, the wars currently raging all over the globe. In such times, it's more important than ever for mankind to stand close together instead of fighting each other. That's what 'Stand United' is about!"
