-- Digital-only EP from SKYFIRE via Pivotal Records

Skyfire is back with a 4 song digital-only EP entitled Fractal which will be out in July. It can be considered as a small dose of whats coming next in september with the name of "Esoteric".
"Since we spent way too much time in the studio writing and recording and too little time giving anything back to the fans, we discussed with our label about releasing a few songs we wrote in 2005 or so. We recorded, mixed, and mastered these alongside the ‘Esoteric’ songs with new vocalist Jocke and guitarist Johan in order to make them available to our fans. We knew these songs weren't going to make our full length, because by the time we had signed a deal, we were flowing with new ideas. However, letting these songs go unreleased was always something sad for us, so it's awesome that they will be available to the fans digitally with exclusive artwork and everything.” comments bass player Martin Hanner on the band's
decision to release the EP.
here is the tracklist:
1.The Land of the Wolves
2.Bereaved in Denial
3.The Transgressor Within
4.Esoteric (‘Esoteric’ album preview track)

We keep our fingers crossed and hope its not anywhere near like the tv show they once been famous for. Anyway here is the first trailer made to public. (it's kind of an interesting fact that the trailer kicks off with a quote from Oscar Wilde - maybe the first rockstar ever-)
