    ST. ELMO'S FIRE - Recording new album since 1992

    After several delays and lineup changes California based metal band ST. ELMO'S FIRE has started recording their 5th studio album "Across the Nations".

    Their first since 1992. In late 2015 Germany's Pure Steel/Karthago Records re-released ST. ELMO'S FIRE 4 previous albums ( "St. Elmo's Fire" ,"Warning From the Sky", "Powerdrive" and "Desperate Years") as limited edition numbered collectors Cd's. The success of these reissues led to this new recording.
    Guitarist, songwriter and founding member JEFF JONES started writing the new material for "Across the Nations" all during the reissue process. "It was a real chore trying to write new songs while getting the original masters, liner notes, lyric sheets and everything else together for the reissues.”

    Lineup changes also made getting the new album off the ground difficult. JONES decided to quit Bay Area thrash band TRAUMA (previous members also include Cliff Burton of METALLICA) because of time and creative constraints. Original ST. ELMO'S FIRE drummer Kris Gustofson was replaced by FREAKSHOW drummer Tom Frost. Bassist Chris Stringari of "Ikki Crane and "Cemetary" was added as well. Vocalist Kevin Brady completes the new lineup.
    The new album features 12 tracks, one of which was written for the "Desperate Years" album in '92 but was never recorded.

    JEFF JONES also added: ”This album was partially crowd funded. We thought that giving our fans a chance to help us make this record would be a win-win kind of thing. The support was overwhelming." The new album is scheduled for a 2017 release.
