Austin-based rock band Fire From The Gods just unveiled a new version of their song “Victory,” now featuring a guest appearance from Better Noise Music labelmate Matt B of From Ashes to New.
The release comes in celebration of Fire From The Gods going back on the road and reconnecting with fans later this month. Starting August 31, they will join rock legends Korn, along with Staind, on the former act’s headlining 2021 tour.
The track is available to stream and download across platforms https://fftg.ffm.to/victoryftfatn
The band also released an empowering and energetic visual for the collaboration today, highlighting the many recent challenges of the human experience around the world, using real-life footage from recent social unrest and natural disasters.
Giving a statement on the song’s release, Fire From The Gods lead singer AJ Channer said, “These last 2 years have been tough on so many. I can talk until I'm blue in the face about how much we missed out on not being able to tour. We want to give American Sun a proper send off. What better way than with ‘Victory.’ Big up to Matt of From Ashes to New for hopping on and blessing the track with his unique take on the song.” The band’s drummer Richie Wicander added the following to give context for the new music video, “The new visual speaks to one of the biggest goals we have with making music - to speak to the human experience and call for connection. We wanted to use the visuals from social and political protests and natural disasters in my homeland of Germany, and Italy, to show that as a collective we are battling something and are in this together. We need to push forward and have perseverance. We will overcome. We will have our victory - together!”
