Crossfyre in the studio in late 2017!

Howdy-ho, folks!  It’s been a spell since our last update, but we’ve got news for y’all!

Firstly, we’ve got a new bassist, Rude Rothstén, who joins us from Crossfyre vocalist StarBuck’s heavy rock band, Stoner Kings.  Sami Salminen decided to pursue other personal career interests and Rude is now the man behind the bottom end with Crossfyre.

Also, Kai Olavi Järvinen decided to part ways with Crossfyre as second guitarist, and we wish him well in his future endeavors.  Be it mentioned, that the parting was amicable.

Those things said, Crossfyre is now in the studio, as we speak.  We are working on a couple of new cuts, one of which is Lynyrd Skynyrd cover Cry For The Bad Man.  The other song is one of our own concoctions, named Rebels Don’t Die.

Once again, we’re working with producer Hannu Leiden and sound engineer Eero Kaukomies.  Recordings are taking place in Helsinki at both Sonic Pump Studios and Content Union Studios.  As of yesterday, we have pretty much everything in the can now instrument-wise except the vocals.  By the end of the year, we hope to have these songs released.

Stay tuned!

Additional new member in Crossfyre!

Howdy-ho, folks!  It’s been a spell since we’ve updated any news in between playing gigs here and there, but now we have some major news for y’all!

There is a new member in Crossfyre, as we have added a third guitarist in addition to Jaakko Kinnari (who is our full-time six-stringer) and Jay Jay Asikainen (original band member who only joins us on occasion for select gigs).  The new man in the mix is Kai Olavi Järvinen, a long-time gigging musician with over two decades of band experience.  Kai’s been here, there and little bit everywhere, plying his talents, and now, he’s in Crossfyre!
