”Fire at Dawn” is the second single from the upcoming Scheitan album “Songs for the Gothic People” which will be released in Spring 2024 by The Circle Music. After a 24-year hiatus, Scheitan returns with new music digging further into the gothic vibe that was present on their 1999 album ”Nemesis”, released by Century Media Records.
Lyric video to “Fire at Dawn” premiered via Side-Line Magazine today!
Songwriter, guitarist & vocalist Pierre Törnkvist comments on the new song: “I feel that this became a nice follow up to the last single, “Lost in Time”, almost like two siblings ofsongs that each have their own identity but have a connection somehow. Not all songs on the album will have this traditional mid-tempo gothic rock style but these two turned out that way.
“I have never liked to speak about lyrical themes but it has almost become a necessary evil these days. The song speaks to the heart of those of us who do not feel like a part of contemporary society, those of us who feel the fire from within, the instinct to defy all that is wrong in this world. If you have the fire inside, you already know, for sure.
“I will now keep working on the rest of the tracks for the album, a lot of ideas are already in progress and I am basically spending time in the studio 4-5 days a week, a bit here and there. We hope to have another single released after the birth of the new year and then we will celebrate the new album in the spring of 2024. I think it will be one of the best post-rock efforts in a long time, I am quite sure of that.”
