FTA Family--it's finally here! We are extremely pleased to announce the official digital release of the new FOUR TRIPS AHEAD EP, "Love and Rebellion" on Tuesday, May 27, 2014!
The past 14 months or so have seen us practically living in our rehearsal space writing and developing songs, playing memorable shows and tracking at Spin Recording Studios in NYC. Though we faced many potentially challenging situations along the way, we succeeded in completing what we feel is our strongest, most cohesive work to date. More importantly, we didn't compromise our artistic integrity and became a stronger unit. No easy feat, we might add. Just as exciting was getting one of our songs, "Run to You", mixed by the talented Nik Chinboukas (Testament, Alex Skolnick Trio, Acrassicauda, Chris Caffery) and the entire EP mastered by the legendary Roger Lian (Rush, Muse, Slayer, Coheed and Cambria), a true gentleman. The artwork was realized by the creative genius that is Ken Candelas, who was pestered mercilessly by Peter while designing our album cover. "Love and Rebellion" is the culmination of a highly creative and fulfilling period that we are so excited to share with you.
In the meantime, we ask our fans in Europe and the rest of the world where quality hard rock/metal magazines are sold to seek out Fireworks UK's latest issue #64--FOUR TRIPS AHEAD are featured in the new music section with "Good Times Goodbye", a song from our upcoming release, on the sampler. And stay tuned for announcements of upcoming live dates, a new lyric video for our new single, "Step Into My World", and other exciting news.
