Jim Matheos, Bobby Jarzombek: Fates Warning: Launch next song off "Theories Of Flight" album

FATES WARNING - Launch next song off - "Theories Of Flight" album via guitar play through video on Guitar World website!

In light of the upcoming July 1st release date for the much anticipated 12th studio album, "Theories Of Flight", by U.S. Progressive Metal pioneers FATES WARNING, a new song is being debuted today via a play through video on the website of Guitar World Magazine.

Check out the track "White Flag" in a clip (with full studio album sound), which doesn't only feature multi-angle cams of guitarist and songwriter Jim Matheos, but also showcases the guest lead guitar parts by longtime FW member Frank Aresti and by recent FW live-guitarist Mike Abdow, here:
A complimentary drum and bass play through clip for the same track featuring a special audio mix will be available separately in the coming weeks too.

FATES WARNING's Jim Matheos checked in to comment about the song as follows:
"With "White Flag" I wanted to do something a bit heavier then what we've done in the recent past, but also to feature counterpoint type guitar parts, where the guitars are playing around and in between each other rather than in strict unison throughout. I also wanted to provide solo spots for Frank Aresti and Mike Abdow. Their contributions are one of the highlights in the song for me."

Previously, FATES WARNING launched a lyric-video designed by Cloud Music Typography for the impressive album opening track, "From The Rooftops",

An album teaser clip, featuring footage by Dennis Hlynsky entitled 'Feeding The Gulls', introducing excerpts of all songs was launched here:

The album is available for pre-order at the IOM webshop here:


FATES WARNING - Theories Of Flight
1. From The Rooftops
2. Seven Stars
3. SOS
4. The Light And Shade Of Things

In addition to Standard CD and Digital Download, a limited 2CD version of the album (and also an Import Double Vinyl) will include an acoustic bonus-disc with the following tracks:

The Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci “JP16” offers an ideal combination of the JP15 and the original Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci signature model. The JP16 retains the styling of the current JP15, with highlights including a lightweight basswood body, high gloss Black Lava finish, and a new Floyd Rose 1000 Pro Floating Tremolo system. The JP16 also features the return of the original scooped forearm contour, which will provide hours of playing comfort. First fret JP16 logo, stainless steel frets and a smokey ebony fretboard are standard options on the ultra thin and fast figured, roasted maple neck. The JP16 comes with Schaller tuning machines as standard, a pair of custom DiMarzio humbuckers, and 20+ dB gain boost push/push volume pot provide the JP16 with plenty of sizzling tone. The guitar sports a 25.5-inch scale, gun-oil finish, 17-inch radius, and Ernie Ball’s trademarked 4-over-2 headstock and compensated nut, designed for superior tuning stability.
