The July 1st release date for the much anticipated 12th studio album, “Theories Of Flight”, by U.S. Progressive Metal pioneers FATES WARNING keeps drawing nearer.

Therefore, FATES WARNING are now launching a lyric-video designed by Cloud Music Typography for the impressive album opening track, “From The Rooftops”, which can be seen here: 

FATES WARNING vocalist Ray Alder had the following to say about “From The Rooftops”:
This song is the opening track on “Theories”. The lyrics in this song are about life, and how we only have one, we need to live it to the fullest. We can’t hide from things we fear, we have to live, to take advantage of what little time we have here. Take chances, make changes and leave your mark on this world…“
