Firefest: THE CHURCH OF ROCK AND ROLL - official anthem now available for download

Every now and again something will hit you like a bolt out of the blue. A chorus, a verse, a solo, or indeed an entire song that somehow manages to capture the absolute essence of something that you hold dear. A few months back, we were looking for something that would sum up exactly what FIREFEST was about.

Not so much the fact that it is a festival but more about the people that attend FIREFEST and what it means to all of us that have had the pleasure of the FIREFEST ‘experience’. FIREFEST is unique, it’s unique to the point that it is a for the fans, by the fans show, very much a rarity in this day and age but more so because it has become a focal point for live AOR and melodic rock in the UK and beyond. It IS family, it’s about fans, friends, great bands, great music and great times. It’s a date in the diary every year. It’s where you can see the unexpected, experience the thrill of seeing some of your favourite acts live, it’s where you can see new bands, it’s where you can meet fellow fans from all over the world with over 30 countries internationally represented every year. It’s about dedication to the cause. It’s about being a part of FIREFEST. It’s a focal point, it is  ...


During a chance conversation with our friends from the band IN FAITH, the entire meaning of FIREFEST was discussed. All of the guys had been to the show on numerous occasions and knew exactly what FIREFEST meant to so many people from all over the world. With this in mind they crafted a song dedicated not just to the festival but also about the people that attend the festival. That song is called THE CHURCH OF ROCK AND ROLL. It is specifically written about the entire FIREFEST experience, and the video for same features many of your smiling faces from over the first ten years of FIREFEST. CHURCH OF ROCK AND ROLL is the FIREFEST anthem. It’s loud and proud a melodic hard rock song, it’s a dyed in the wool, foot-stomping, fist in the air, sing it loud ass-kicker that askes  ...


And which way brother to the CHURCH OF ROCK AND ROLL? The answer is simple:


Written and recorded by IN FAITH, and mixed and produced by Denis Ward (Pink Cream 69) FIREFEST are now making this song available for download as a part of our 10th anniversary celebrations. This song is available by download only and will not be available in any other format. But not only do you get the song, you also get the video that accompanies the song with all of your smiling faces from the past ten years of the festival. 

Treat this as YOUR personal memento and a testament to the staying power of melodic hard rock. This is the OFFICIAL FIREFEST INTERNATIONAL ANTHEM – yes, that is correct – this is the INTERNATIONAL ANTHEM that you can proudly say represents YOU, no matter what your nationality because FIREFEST is just that – an international gathering of fans and friends from all over the world and IN FAITH have now given you something not only to call your own, but something that represents who and what FIREFEST is about.


Downloading* this song costs 0.99p and you get not only the track itself but also the video that accompanies it.
