Christian rockers Fireflight will release Innova, their first new album in over three years. The album will be released independently through The Fuel Music on May 5, 2015.
Vocalist Dawn Michele, bassist Wendy Drennen, guitarist Glenn Drennen and drummer Adam McMillion are now a foursome after Fireflight's guitarist Justin Cox stepped down to spend more time with his growing family. Also, Michele has announced that she is pregnant! So congrats.
"We had a great relationship with our label for the past eight years, but we were not going in the same direction as the other artists on our label," said Drennen about their former major label digs. She also credits the band's fans for having enough faith in Fireflight to become a part of the renewal process that led to the new album.
"Innova, the Latin word for 'renew,' is a really old word, but it's also almost futuristic in a way,” said Glenn. "It really told the story in one word of bringing what Fireflight has done in the past, but also moving it into the future. The official release date of 5/5/15 is significant because it's going to be our fifth album and celebrates the 15th year of the band."
The album's lead single "Resuscitate" stays true to the band's heavy musical roots across a narrative of feeling pushed to the absolute limit, but nonetheless suggests digging down deep within a well of faith for a jumpstart rather than simply throwing in the towel.
