Fireflight: ‘Innova’ album review

Fifteen years into its celebrated career, modern rockers Fireflight dropped full-length album number five (on 5/5/15 no less) in the wake of many professional and personal changes. For starters, the collection marks the first ever independent effort for the GRAMMY-nominated group, which accounts for a greater risk taking capacity without ever alienating its pre-existing fan base. And behind the scenes, front woman Dawn Michele and her hubby are brand new parents, another likely factor in the band’s renewed sense of purpose as musicians and songwriters. Longtime listeners and newcomers alike are sure to latch on to Fireflight’s themes of perseverance and rejuvenation, alongside its standard hard rock stylings (now enhanced by electronic and stadium-ready pop elements) to further reinforce this fresh and fruitful new chapter.
