BROTHER FIRETRIBE, the Finnish AOR/hard rock band featuring NIGHTWISH guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, have inked a deal with Spinefarm Records.

Unashamedly taking a bow to their influences from the '80s — VAN HALEN, JOURNEY and other chartbusters of old — BROTHER FIRETRIBE's sound features "killer vocal harmonies and airy keyboard lines that will stick to your head like a misplaced bubble gum," according to a press release. "The cherries on the pie are Pekka Heino's smooth, dreamy voice and Emppu Vuorinen's guitar work, with his immaculate sense of style, rich tone and trademark sound which can't be mistaken, as the hundreds of thousands of fans of NIGHTWISH can attest."
