2019 has been a banner year for Fire From The Gods. The band was recently named a 2020 breakout artist by Pandora and SiriusXM, while the band enjoyed prime placements on major playlists such as Spotfiy’s Rock Hard, New Metal Tracks, and Adrenaline Workout, as well as Apple’s Breaking Hard Rock and Metal.
“Right Now,” the lead single from American Sun, is currently Top 20 on the active rock charts and continues to grow in audience..
American Sun was recorded, engineered, and mixed by Erik Ron (Godsmack, Motionless In White, Panic! At The Disco) over a two-month period in Los Angeles, and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Alice Cooper, Korn, Red Hot Chili Peppers). It’s an expertly executed and DNA distinct amalgam of metal, hip-hop, and modern rock. Fire From The Gods have adopted the tagline “In Us We Trust” — meaning “We the People” are responsible for change; a unifying statement in order to try to prevent society from succumbing to the growing malaise brought on by soul-sucking technology, divisive politics, and environmental destruction.
