Gotthard Release First Single From ‘Firebirth’

Gotthard Release First Single From ‘Firebirth’

April 22, 2012

On April 20th Gotthard released the first single from the album ‘Firebirth’, due out on June 1st through Nuclear Blast Records. The single, with the name “Starlight”, will appear in two versions, a rock and an acoustic variation.

“Starlight” is the virtual shooting star of album song writing: the song was one of the first that the band wrote together with Nic Maeder, the new member at the microphone. “The chemistry between us worked immediately”, says guitarist Leo Leoni. “It is really unusual to be able to sit down together and straightaway write a song which is later the single.”

“Right from the first, we had a really laid-back atmosphere between us,” agrees Nic Maeder. “It was therefore not hard to come up with good ideas. It was really good fun from the start!”

“Starlight” is not only the first official single to be released but also the lucky star shining on the new formation’s collaboration. Now the first signs of life of this musical ‘Firebirth’ are showing themselves — strong, catchy and full of life!

“Starlight” can be found on the playlist of all relevant radio stations and a video clip of the song will follow in the next few weeks.
