FROM THE FIRE Debut Brand New Song & Lyric Video

Lions Pride Music is extremely pleased to announce the immediate release of the first single from From the Fire's new album, "OctOpus".
"'Madman' is one of the harder-edged tracks from the upcoming album", says Carsten Nielsen, president of Lions Pride, "and because of its political message, we decided it would be a good first choice for release".
"What started out as very cool riff and bass line evolved into a message song", says Tommy Lafferty, co-author of the tune, "and it was a song we've been dying to record properly for a long time".
J.D. Kelly, who co-wrote the song, says "It's a song about madmen - despots, emperors, dictators, men of absolute power, or those who seek absolute power at any cost. Over the years it's existed, the song could have been about any one of dozens of bad people in modern history. It just happens that it fits perfectly into the current political climate of the United States, and we sort of expanded on that."
The song is available for download on CD Baby (visit the Lions Pride web site, and the From The Fire web site for more info), and will also be a part of the new album when it is released in a couple of weeks. The release also officially marks the first of several planned between From The Fire and Lions Pride.

FROM THE FIRE To Release 'Evil Men Do' in October

Wednesday, September 10, 2014
From The Fire have completed work on their new album and will release Evil Men Do in October.

"Pat Regan, who co-produced and engineered the first From The Fire album, "Thirty Days, Dirty Nights", has signed on to mix and add his ear to the finalizing of the  upcoming From The Fire release, "Evil Men Do", slated to emerge immediately after the mixing and mastering are done. A single, "In Your Dreams", will be available for download prior to the album drop, in early October.
It's been a long process - far longer than the band anticipated, but the result of our collective efforts, helped greatly in the studio by the talents of Nicky Moroch, is one that we're proud of, and that we think our fans will enjoy.
We look forward to having the album in our hands in time for Firefest in late October, and we can't wait to see "Evil Men Do"  join our first record in the collections of AOR fans everywhere.
Pat Regan, whose many credits include production, mixing, engineering, and musical contributions to albums by Ritchie Blackmore, Deep Purple, Saga, Warrant, Weird Al Yankovic, Crown of Thorns, and most recently, Mr. Big, is a perfect fit for the band's sound.
From The Fire will keep everyone updated as we move closer to the release. God bless you all, and thank you for the years of being there. We'll see you in the UK in a few weeks. We love you."
