  FATES WARNING SHOW DEBUT PROMOTIONAL 'FIREFLY' VIDEO-CLIP
20 December 2013





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 can be viewed further down the page:

Fates Warning vocalist Ray Alder has checked in to comment about the song 'Firefly': "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:



Fates Warning's 'Darkness In A Different Light' has not only received great response from media and band supporters alike, but also managed to enter the official sales charts in Germany at number 41, in The Netherlands at number 90 and in the USA at number 162 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.

Further Billboard entries have been number 50 on the Current Rock Chart, 14 on the Current Hard Music Chart, 142 on the Top Current Albums Chart and 5 on the Top New Artist Albums Chart.

A sampler containing pre-listening clips of all the tracks of the album can be checked out here:



'Darkness In A Different Light' was produced by Fates Warning guitarist and main composer Jim Matheos and mixed by long time engineer Phil Magnotti, while mastering duties were handled by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Mastering, California. The artwork was designed by Conte di San Pietro.

Next to the standard CD jewel case and the Digital Download format, 'Darkness In A Different Light' will also be available in Europe as 2CD Mediabook edition and as Gatefold 2LP version (180gr. vinyl in black as well as strictly limited red or white vinyl versions) with four bonus tracks.







WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
