While celebrating the upcoming release of their new album “Survive” by playing at the major Rock and Metal festivals worldwide, Stratovarius increase the anticipation for the new album with a brand new single release. 

After finding more drastic words and imagery with their previous single “World On Fire”, the new single stands out through its catchiness and almost poppy sound combined with a subtle 80s vibe, not only musically but also lyrically. With “Firefly” the band move away from the global issues such as global warming or the pandemic and release their very own version of a love song. 

But that’s not all – fans can also look forward to an elaborately produced music video that will follow the release of the single at the end of August. 

Jens Johansson about “Firefly“:
It’s one of the poppier songs on the record, and a little bit more lighthearted, although love is always complicated. By the way, some actual firefly females catch males of a different species using false light signals, to eat them. It’s all in a day’s work when you want to survive.

A blistering comeback from one of heavy metal’s most seminal bands, “Survive” is full of dynamics and drama, feeding on a wide range of emotions along the way. But the core message that this triumphant endeavour conveys is one of struggle, defiance, hope and victory.

Stratovarius – the Scandinavian kings of Power Metal and one of the most famous bands of their genre in the world, managed to establish themselves as one of the top names in the Metal scene and have since influenced bands all over the world.

The Finnish band gained international success with albums like ‘Fourth Dimension’ (1995), ‘Episode‘ (1996) and their epic project ‘Elements, Pt. 1′ (a peak in their Progressive and Symphonic style of Power Metal) and ‘Elements, Pt.2′ – to name just a few of the band’s milestones. In 2009 ‘Polaris’ marked a fresh start for the band as guitarist and band leader Timo Tolkki left the band. Instead of being a difficult re-start, ‘Polaris’ showed Stratovarius in top form and perfectly able to captivate people all over the world: The album became a hell of a comeback and charted higher than the previous releases around the globe. Since then, Stratovarius continue to walk the path of success, inspiring fans and other bands, young and old, all over the world.
