Fire Follows “Say Words”

Fire Follows’ newest single “SAY WORDS” is a follow-up to Fire Follows prior releases “Shedding This Skin” and “The Puppeteer”. Artist Chris Watt, the founder of Fire Follows, has been working diligently on a project that brings a sound in full round. Every single release is building on top of the other. The full impact is what Watt and his band will be bringing out on tour, from March 16, 2023, through April 2, 2023. Fire Follows will be on the road with Smile Empty Soul and Tantric (dates below).

Each single builds upon the other creating a power-metal force at each step! Chris Watt (Fire Follows) continues to team up with leading producers as he makes music he believes in. Following his last single “The Puppeteer” and “Shedding This Skin”, we find the journey continuing to build now with “SAY WORDS”. This isn’t your ordinary convergence of metal parts – this is an entire mechanically and passionately working entity.

Fire Follows is the passion project of singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Chris Watt. Located in Colorado Springs, CO, Chris does all writing and recording at his home studio… or probably more appropriately referred to as a studio home at this point. Since its inception in 2019, Fire Follows has continued morphing and evolving. Originally with just Chris, to the eventual involvement and contribution of outside musicians, and now swinging back to more of a solo project, the Fire Follows model is very fluid, and will continue to remain flexible as touring and new material will inevitably require contributions from other players. Chris’s goal is very simple… get as many ears to hear the music as possible.

In Chris’s own words, “There are roughly 8 billion people on the planet, right? So the goal is simple, get all 8 billion to hear the music from Fire Follows. I have no interest in making a penny from FF. These songs are literally pieces of my soul, and there is something so powerful about not only sharing that with the world but trying to create an experience that pulls the listener into the energetic space in which each song was created. I always encourage fans to listen to the songs multiple times as they are written in layers, and it takes multiple listens to really get the full effect and experience those layers fully.”

Fire Follows is continuing to release new singles throughout 2023 and you will find them on tour with SMILE EMPTY SOUL AND TANTRIC.
