There may be no better time for an anthemic and powerful song of hope, and of being unstoppable, than right now...and that is the message behind Ignite The Fire’s newest single release, "Unstoppable".
“It was really an introspective of how I was feeling at the time,” says Caelan Gregory, band drummer and lyricist. “Dealing with anxiety and depression, I wanted it to be something where it is basically saying I can break through this. I am unstoppable.”
He and the band are reaching out to others and asking them to answer the call of "Unstoppable". Driven by a powerful and aggressive sound, as well as inspiring lyrics, the song captures a moment in time...and yet the message is actually timeless.
“Times are very difficult right now,” says singer Jack Gurecki. “People are out of a job. People being away from their loved ones. For those going through any kind of struggle, I feel that this song brings a message of hope, and being unwilling to give up.”
Mark Quinn, the band's guitarist, describes the song as “breaking through the wall,” both literally and figuratively and from a societal and personal level. “Not just with what’s going on in the world today, but it can get you through the last mile of a marathon, through that last rep on the weight bench, or get you hyped up for that football game, or that hockey game, or just getting through a tough day on the job. It provides that emotional drive to propel you forward whatever obstacles you may face.”
Ignite the Fire is coming off the success of their single, "Echoes" from their last album, Between Shadow And Solace, a song which was streamed over 200,000 times. "Echoes" was also added to Spotify’s influential, editorial playlist, And Upon This Rock.
The Maryland band, which also includes guitarist Michael Nelson and bassist Holly Smith, was formed nearly a decade ago, and has touched countless lives with their message of hope and resilience. Their music has been played around the world from the U.S. to the U.K., and from Australia to Brazil, and they have shared the stage with heavyweight bands including: Three Days Grace, Bad Wolves, In This Moment, Theory Of A Deadman, Pop Evil, Black Stone Cherry, and 10 Years, among many others. The band’s music has also been streamed heavily on top digital platforms such as Spotify and Pandora, and Ignite The Fire has been named a 'Band To Watch' by both.
“Unstoppable is another song that we hope will connect with, and inspire those who hear it,” says Gregory. “and that message is needed now, more than ever.”
