Finnish Rockers FIRE ACTION Sign with Steamhammer/SPV

New Studio Album Scheduled for Autumn 2024 Release

Steamhammer/SPV is ablaze with excitement for their newest signing, Finnish rockers FIRE ACTION!

Olly Hahn, head of Steamhammer comments:

FIRE ACTION’s metal blade balances on the barbed wire between 80’s hair metal such as Ratt, Stryper, Vinnie Vincent Invasion, and Dokken, and the era’s speed & thrash metal like King Diamond. I have never heard something like this before and I’m sure that after the release of the new album, the band will be a favourite not only for media people but most important for all hard music lovers with taste.”

Before FIRE ACTION, lead singer Pete Ahonen was already a well-known metal figure around the world. His previous bands Burning Point & Stargazery both with stellar worldwide catalogs.

About the signing, Ahonen shared this:

I have nothing but huge respect towards Steamhammer/SPV. They are definitely one the greatest labels with legendary releases, and I find it unreal to be on the same label with one of my all-time favorite bands, Running Wild. I am honored to be a part of their great roster.”

We are super excited to start working with such a legendary record company as Steamhammer,” adds FIRE ACTION founding member Juri Vuortama. “After a 45-minute chat about 80s and early 90s metal with label head Olly Hahn – via landline of course – I was 9112 percent sure that Steamhammer/SPV is the best possible base for FIRE ACTION.” (Referring to the band’s final independent release, 2020’s ‘9112’)

Expect the new FIRE ACTION album to range from sledgehammer mid-tempo metal through 186 bpm shockwaves to full power ballad mode. The album is expected in Autumn 2024 and more info will be available soon!
