Shiraz Lane touring in Europe w Brother Firetribe this Fall!
New Shiraz Lane material coming up later this year
Finnish young rock dynamite Shiraz Lane will return to European venues in October and November 2017, supporting their great fellow countrymen Brother Firetribe, who are celebrating their 15th anniversary this year!
Shiraz Lane´s been working on their 2nd album in Stockholm for the whole year with a Swedish songwriter/ producer Per Aldeheim (Def Leppard, Pain, Fatboy, Soilwork…). The album will be out in early 2018, and the guys are super happy about both with their results in the studio and these upcoming Fall live dates:
“We are extremely excited to join forces and support Brother Firetribe through Europe during the upcoming Autumn of 2017. It will be a pleasure to revisit some of the awesome venues and embrace the atmosphere we were so warmly welcomed on our last tour, and are thrilled to bring our caravan to new destinations for your eyes and ears to witness. You might even have an exclusive chance to hear some new material we have been working so hard on throughout the year. Perhaps we might even release a single before the leaves fall from the trees? Time will tell..!”
Shiraz Lane will continue the album´s vocal recordings in Gröndahl Studios in this month and will play live this Summer still in Üferrock (DE), Summer Breeze (DE) and Hair Metal Heaven (UK), before focusing on the European tour, beginning on the 11th of October.

Finnish AOR maestros Brother Firetribe are proud to announce their 15th Anniversary European Tour.
Embarking upon a voyage across 11 different countries, this 19-date headline run not only celebrates the band’s 15 year career, it also features their first bill-topping appearances in certain countries, including the UK…
“We absolutely can’t wait to come back to the UK to hook up with all the friends we made there the last time. It’ll be a riot!” – BFT front-man, Pekka Ansio Heino.
To date, the group’s sole UK performance took place at Firefest in Nottingham in 2014; however, this will change in October of this year when they return to Nottingham for the melodic hard rock festival that is Rockingham, as well as putting on their first headline UK show at the newly re-launched Borderline in Central London.
UK dates as follows:-
21.10. UK – London, Borderline
22.10. UK – Nottingham, Rockingham Festival
Brother Firetribe’s fourth full-length album, ‘Sunbound’, is released on March 24th via Spinefarm Records.
Featuring 12 new pieces of music, including lead track ‘Taste Of A Champion’ plus follow-up single / video ‘Indelible Heroes’, ‘Sunbound’ has been mixed by Finnish studio-meister Mikko Karmila (Nightwish, Children Of Bodom, Stratovarius), and is the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Diamond In The Firepit’.
Since first coming together for their ‘False Metal’ debut back in 2006, Brother Firetribe –featuring Nightwish guitarist Emppu Vuorinen – have flown the flag for a brand of music (‘ultra-melodic West Coast AOR’) that once strode the US radio airwaves like a colossus, filling up arenas and providing the silky soundtrack to pool-side summers and wind-in-the-hair coastal highway drives; music pioneered by some of rock music’s most legendary names…
However, Brother Firetribe – that’s Vuorinen, Pekka Ansio Heino, keyboard player Tomppa Nikulainen, bassist Jason Flinck & drummer Hannes Pirila – are not trying to hitch a DeLorean ride into the past; rather, their collective aim is to both celebrate and reinvigorate a musical style that is all about big hooks, strong melodies, soaring vocals and searing guitars, not to mention the desire to entertain on a grand an’ glorious scale.
