“Darkness In A Different Light” track listing:

CD 1

01. One Thousand
02. Firefly
03. Desire
04. Falling
05. I Am
06. Lighthouse
07. Into The Black
08. Kneel And Obey

CD 2

02. Falling Further
03. One (live)
04. Life In Still Water (live)

Regarding the song “Firefly”, Alder said: “‘Firefly’ is very personal to me in more ways than one….

“After I had written the melody for this song, I knew immediately what the title was going to be, as well as the subject; it just fit the mood.

“As for the subject, I’m pretty sure we’ve all felt this way at one time or another.

“Sometimes things just don’t work out the way you think they would, but that’s okay, that’s part of life… We move on. Ironically, while recording ‘Firefly’ in New Hampshire, I was outside the studio late one night, and there they were, floating through the trees in the forest! I hadn’t seen a single firefly for at least fifteen years since I had left my hometown of San Antonio, Texas, so I kinda took it as a sign. A sign of what, I don’t know… But very ironic nonetheless…”

On the topic of “Darkness In A Different Light” as a whole, Alder said: “‘Darkness In A Different Light’ is the result of almost two years of very hard work from everyone in the band.

“I believe that this lineup is the best that FATES WARNING has ever had, and I also think that it comes through in the music on this album.

“It’s been almost nine years since our last studio album and I couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve accomplished here.

“We are looking very much forward to playing some new songs for our fans who have stuck by us over all these years.

“We plan on touring as much as possible for ‘Darkness In A Different Light’ and hopefully we’ll hit a few places we’ve never been.”

FATES WARNING will embark on a North American tour in November. The trek will launch November 15 in Joliet, Illinois and wrap December 14 in Seattle, Washington.
