(Nashville, Tenn.) Jan. 17, 2012 -- GRAMMY Award nominated, female-fronted rock act Fireflight will release its fourth studio project, NOW, on March 6. The album is preceded by lead single, “Stay Close,” which topped the Billboard Christian Rock radio chart this week, while Fireflight gears up to support its new release with a “Stay Close” spring tour.
Asserting a new direction from the band’s previous record For Those Who Wait (2010), NOW calls listeners to move beyond their circumstances and take action. As guitarist Glenn Drennen explains, “We are not bound by our current condition because life is difficult or we have been hurt in the past. NOW points to God as our refuge who not only provides a place of safety and comfort, but who also challenges us to get outside our comfort zone...to join with something greater than ourselves.”
Produced by Jasen Rauch, NOW displays a new sonic focus for the band as well, built on lush electronic textures, futuristic moods and a more finely honed grasp of tender-to-titanic dynamics. Together the project’s hard-hitting message and sound make for an anthemic album. For example, the fist-pumping title track encourages listeners to quit making excuses, hiding in the shadows of previous pain, and to choose the path to freedom. In the same vein, melodic ballad “Rise Above” urges us to stop the cycle of victimization, overcome those things that have entangled us, and work toward a new tomorrow.
The record’s lead single “Stay Close,” which combines a techno beat backdrop with lyrics that address calling on God when our hearts and minds are stuck in dark times, is already finding success at radio. This week, the song climbed to No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Rock chart. Fireflight will follow the radio single with a “Stay Close” tour, additionally featuring BEC Recordings artist Rapture Ruckus and Delvin Williams. The 20-city spring leg will run through late March.

Florida native Fireflight comprises Dawn Michele (lead vocals), Justin Cox (guitar, keys, vocals), Wendy Drennen (bass, vocals), Glenn Drennen (guitar), and Adam McMillion (drums). Fireflight released its national debut, The Healing of Harms, in 2006, followed by breakout sophomore album Unbreakable (2008), and For Those Who Wait (2010).
The GRAMMY-nominated, modern rock outfit has received six career Dove Award nominations, including Artist of the Year in 2009, and lead singer Dawn Michele’s 2010 Female Vocalist of the Year nomination. Additionally, the group won Taco Bell’s inaugural
fan-voted “Best of the Beat” contest in 2009, and performed at ESPN’s “Winter X Games 13.”
The band’s music has been featured on E! Entertainment’s “Style Network” and in music-video reels at both American Eagle and Journey’s stores across the country. For nearly a decade, the band has remained tireless road warriors on the concert circuit averaging 140 shows a year.
