FREEDOM CALL Announces New Album and Releases a New Single

An album title that fits perfectly in two respects: ‘Silver Romance’ is the name of the latest release by southern German melodic power metal act FREEDOM CALL.

The moniker not only stands for the band’s 25th anniversary – referred to by singer/guitarist and band founder Chris Bay tongue-in-cheek as “our silver wedding anniversary” – but also applies to the content of the recording: “Qualities such as clarity, freedom and lightness are attributed to silver as a precious metal,” explains Bay, adding: “Silver is also said to strengthen your self-confidence and imagination. These are all features that also suit FREEDOM CALL and that we’ve incorporated into our new material, both musically and lyrically.”

Chris Bay and bandmates Lars Rettkowitz (guitar), Francesco Ferraro (bass) and Ramy Ali (drums), the latter having returned from a private hiatus, have recorded more than a dozen new tracks for ‘Silver Romance’. Without giving too much away: The result is the most diverse and colourful album in the band’s history to date.

‘Silver Romance’ will be available on CD and for digital download on Steamhammer/SPV from 10 May 2024, and Bay and Co. are set to start their 2024 concert activities only a few days later. To ease the wait until then, four lead singles will be out ahead of the album release, starting from 21 February with the title track ‘Silver Romance’, including a making-of video, followed by ‘In Quest Of Love’ and ‘High Above’ on 20 March and 10 April, both of them complete with lyric clips. Two days before the album’s arrival, 8 May 2024 will see ‘Supernova’, supported by a superb video, round off the quartet of singles.

I have been a Metalhead ever since I was old enough to comprehend what music was. Something really called to me when I for the first time heard my fathers IRON MAIDEN albums being played, that gave me such goosebumps which only made me want more! Ever since then, I’ve been listening into multiple genres with the hunger of exploring new metal music and keeping track of upcoming bands. My favorite genres today is Black Metal and Blackgaze which includes most of my favorite bands, but my biggest favorite of them all is called HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY. I’m really passionate about the metal community and frequently goes to concerts to try to support as many band as possible by buying merch and promoting them by doing reviews. The metal community has shaped me into who I am today and is something that I will always give back to!
