Guitar virtuoso Gus G. and his band Firewind have entered Noise Factory Studio in Belgium to start recording their eighth album, which is slated for a late 2016 release.
The band posted the following update on their Facebook page:
“We feel it’s time to give you an update on what’s happening in our world. For the past few months we’ve been busy composing our 8th album and this week we finally entered the studio to start recording! We’re super excited about it, as this is our first recording in 4 years, plus this will be our first album with our new singer Henning Basse (who should not be a stranger to our fans by now).”
Firewind will postpone their European tour until early 2017 to focus on the new effort, but will keep several festival dates throughout the year.
Stay tuned for more updates from Gus G. and the guys throughout the recording process.
