“I wrote it as a giant metaphor about procrastinating” comments guitarist Dave Fortman. “The lyrics say it all. ‘Waiting for the Sky to fall’ is sitting around doing nothing to make life better and “the sound of the whistle blow” is the moment you get up and make a change.”
‘Long Road’ is the third single after “That Ain’t Livin’ “ and “Kill The Pain” to be taken from the bands forthcoming new album “Rad Wings of Destiny” which is due for release on October 21st 2022.
