This past weekend, U.S. Progressive Metal pioneers FATES WARNING have wrapped a first North American headlining tour in support of “Darkness In A Different Light”, their first new studio album effort in almost a decade and InsideOutMusic debut.
Now, the time is come to debut the promotional video clip for the album’s first single “Firefly”.
The clip was directed David Solbjørg and Kjetil Kolbjørnsrud of Twitchyfilms and is being premiered via the website of UK’s Metal Hammer Magazine here: http://www.metalhammer.co.uk/
FATES WARNING vocalist Ray Alder has checked in to comment about the song “Firefly” as follows:
“I’ve always liked the romantic concept of the firefly. A tiny flashing creature searching for another on a warm summer night. Like stars that move…”
During their recent North American tour, the band also stopped by at FoxCT to perform the song “Firefly” acoustically in the TV studio. Watch the interview and footage here: http://video.foxct.com/
