Nach der Trackpremiere von `Firefly` am 05. August 2022, legen STRATOVARIUS, wie bereits angekündigt, das offizielle Story telling Video zum melodischen Song nach. “Survive“, das erste STRATOVARIUS Album in sieben Jahren, ist für den 23. September vorgemerkt.
Keyboarder Jens Johansson.erzählt:
“We spent five or six days solid, trying to come up with the lyrics for that song,” “When we finally settled on that punchline for the chorus, it was a good song about survival and it all just seemed to fit. It fits with the history of the band too, because we managed to survive as long as we have. This band has been through some strange days! The original line-up formed in 1984, so it’s been a long story. It was the middle of the summer, there were forest fires everywhere, there was a global pandemic and all kinds of crazy shit going on. Some of the lyrics are perhaps less uplifting than they could have been, but that reflects our mood at the time. There’s a lot of positive stuff on there as well!”
