Gotthard Release First Single From 'Firebirth'


April 22, 2012


On April 20th Gotthard released the first single from the album 'Firebirth', due out on June 1st through Nuclear Blast Records. The single, with the name "Starlight", will appear in two versions, a rock and an acoustic variation.


"Starlight" is the virtual shooting star of album song writing: the song was one of the first that the band wrote together with Nic Maeder, the new member at the microphone. "The chemistry between us worked immediately", says guitarist Leo Leoni. "It is really unusual to be able to sit down together and straightaway write a song which is later the single."


"Right from the first, we had a really laid-back atmosphere between us," agrees Nic Maeder. "It was therefore not hard to come up with good ideas. It was really good fun from the start!"


"Starlight" is not only the first official single to be released but also the lucky star shining on the new formation's collaboration. Now the first signs of life of this musical 'Firebirth' are showing themselves -- strong, catchy and full of life!


"Starlight" can be found on the playlist of all relevant radio stations and a video clip of the song will follow in the next few weeks.

    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.

    • The police really haven't changed much over the last 10, 20 or 30 years...they just get a lot more negative publicity today...a cop can't fart in public without it being headline news....we are a society of laws, rules and regulations and we need cops to police and enforce those laws or our society is fucked....it's a shitty job most of the time and many people would not want to do it...and remember they are affected just like we are by all the same shit that is happening around us so maybe we should give them some credit and a little understanding....while I'm not a fan of any kind of authority , I realize that it is necessary and we should do our best to support and respect it....that's not to say we should give them a pass when they fuck up as they should be held to a higher degree of integrity and honor when compared to those they serve....
