Die finnischen Power/Symphonic Metaller STRATOVARIUS schicken sich an, am 23. September ihre neue Scheibe `Survive´ zu veröffentlichen und bringen bereits heute den Titeltrack als ersten Appetizer auf den Weg. Die Audiofassung ist schon verfügbar, die Videopremiere startet um 16:00 Uhr CEST.
Keyboarder Jens Johansson berichtet:
“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 ssome trange 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!”
