Gotthard's new album, Firebirth, was released on June 1st via Nuclear Blast/Warner Music (in Switzerland Musikvertrieb). The album landed at #9 on the German Media Control Charts. In their Swiss homeland, Firebirth landed at #1, for the 14th time in the band's career.
“We are really happy with this success”, said guitar player Leo Leoni. “After the past difficult time, Firebirth is like a new beginning for us and is also album number 1 of a new Gotthard chapter. We want to thank everyone who was involved, particularly our management, both record labels Nuclear Blast and Musikverttrieb – and of course all our fans, who have been with us all the way and have been as always like a family to us. We look upon this success as a joint effort of all of us and our fans too. We are delighted with the great Gotthard teamwork – as NEIL YOUNG would say: “Hey, hey, my, my – Rock ‘n’ Roll will never die!”
