Gus G. has checked in to comment on the recent activities in the FIREWIND camp as follows:
"Hey everybody! Hope you've all had a great summer. We sure had a blast out there and we've just finished our festival run in Europe by playing an amazing gig @ Germany's Summer Breeze Open Air. We recently decided to film some special videos for our YouTube channel, FireTV and keep you updated by what goes on backstage, or while traveling, the surprises we get on the road, funny moments, etc. Here's the first one from our recent visit to the UK for Bloodstock festival. More to follow, stay tuned!
Finally, we're looking forward to playing Australia for the first time ever in the band's history! So get those tickets now cause Greece's finest will be making its way Down Under!"
