Following last years disbanding of Sweden’s much-loved progressive rockers Beardfish, vocalist and driving force Rikard Sjöblom has turned his attention to his solo project Gungfly, and signed with InsideOutMusic for the release of their next album ‘On Her Journey To The Sun’ on May 19th, 2017.
Now they are pleased to reveal the title track of the album with a brand new live video which you can see here:
Rikard had this to say: “On Her Journey To The Sun is the title track for the new Gungfly album and I would say it is one of the poppier tunes of the bunch. Instead of doing a traditional music video we decided to record a live version of the song in the studio and film it! This seemed more natural for Gungfly and gave us a chance to show you the live band.
The title comes from the late stand-up comedian Bill Hicks who asked himself what moths used to fly into before there was electric light. “…are there moths on their way to the sun right now going: it’s gonna be worth it…” the lyrics have nothing to do with this but rather deal with letting go of someone or something that you just can’t resist. Hope you’ll like it!”
‘On Her Journey To The Sun’ will be available as a special edition 2CD digipak, including a second ‘best-of’ disc featuring a hand-picked selection of tracks from earlier Gungfly releases. It will also be available as gatefold 2LP + CD & digital download.
