"The lyrics for 'Freedom' were taken from notes I had written while I was in recovery in June of 2015," explains lead vocalist/drummer Deen Castronovo. "They're just a powerful reminder of where my head and heart were at the time. It was the last song Doug, (producer/songwriter) Alessandro Del Vecchio and I wrote and recorded. The whole lyric came to me in about 10 minutes. When I was at Hazelden Betty Ford, we would journal after each day to reflect on what we were feeling throughout the day. At the end of each day, I'd written the words 'FREEDOM, COMING MY WAY.' It was the first thing that hit me and thought it'd be a great chorus for a song. So when Doug brought the song idea in, his music just fit too perfectly. I moved some things around and the entire lyric fit into the song! It was totally effortless."
"For this song," continues guitarist Doug Aldrich, "the inspiration came when Deen and I were listening to what we had so far for the record and we wanted to write something different that we hadn't done yet. One day Deen sent me a MP3 of him jamming on guitar. There were a bunch of parts going and I thought, 'how cool is that? Deeno C throwing down!!' I can just see Deen jammin' and I didn't expect that. I picked up the guitar and tried to play some stuff in the same tempo with the vibe he had. Basically on accident, I found a riff that I thought could be OK. When we all got to Milano, me, Deen and Alessandro talked about some ideas. We started talking about a jungle beat type of song, and I remembered the riff. The three of us did a rough demo and sent it off for label approval. Jack's bass is super creative and fresh. Alessandro's keyboards and production are stunning, and I love how it turned out. The lyric is very inspirational. I'm so impressed with Deen on this record! Let's go! Freedom for all!"
LIGHT IN THE DARK builds off the classic melodic rock style of the debut, but fans should prepare for a somehow even more inspired set and a few (pleasant) surprises. Inspiring, uplifting, emotionally powerful, and thoughtful, this album WILL be the soundtrack to many a moment in your life.
