Omaha based hard rock quartet, Through Fire, have announced that they will be hitting the road with Fozzy next year for a set of US dates in April/May. Tickets go on sale Friday December 20th 2019 from ThroughFireMusic.com
The band have also dedicated their previously released cover of Roxette’s 1989 mega-hit, ‘Listen To Your Heart’ to the duo’s late singer, Marie Fredricksson following her passing last week and will be donating proceeds from the track to St Jude’s (for more info and how to donate head to StJudes.org).
Speaking on their cover of ‘Listen To Your Heart’ and the enormous impact Marie had on millions of music fans around the world, Through Fire have released the below statement:
“Roxette’s music has served as a soundtrack and inspiration for so many people. When recording our new album earlier this year, we decided to cover their classic “Listen to Your Heart”. We always intended on the song being our second single, so went to L.A. several months ago to shoot the music video.
“We were so excited to pay tribute and honor a legendary artist who had such a positive impact on us. We released the video on Monday morning, Dec 9th. However, the next day we were absolutely shocked and saddened to hear the news of Marie passing from cancer just hours after our video was released.
“We dedicate the track and video to Marie’s memory and have decided to donate a portion of the songs sales to St. Jude’s (www.stjude.org) in hopes of creating awareness and finding a cure for cancer.
We’re so incredibly sorry about the loss of such a music icon, our deepest condolences go out to her family, friends and fans around the world. Marie’s music is timeless and her memory will live forever.”
