Gotthard confirm Firebirth release date

Gotthard have announced that they are currently in the final stages of production for their brand new album ‘Firebirth’ and it will be released on the 1st June via Nuclear Blast. The album is the first to feature vocalist Nic Maeder after Steve Lee was killed when a tractor-trailer swerved into a group of parked motorcycles and one hit Lee, killing him instantly.

Leo Leoni: “We are delighted with the new album. Songwriting with Nic and Freddy was a real explosion of inspiration and new ideas! Regarding sound and production, we have returned to our roots and we deliberately produced it with a pure – and for Gotthard – typical sound. For us, Firebirth is the comeback album with the rating: BACK TO BASIC!”

Marc Lynn: “Collaboration with Nic was unbelievable – it feels that we have known each other for ever and the euphoria in the band is now burning like a new fire. It is a true rebirth of the zest of 20 years ago, when the band took off “to conquer the world”. Producing this album with the new line-up was a real “birth of fire” – we are very proud of our new baby.”

Nic Maeder: “It was absolutely amazing to experience the positive feedback from the Gotthard fans and the media after the release of “Remember It’s Me”. Now I am looking forward to the reaction to our first album together. The chemistry in the band feels fantastic and we are very much looking forward to being onstage in a couple of weeks and rocking with the fans.“
