Fireflight Releases 'I Won't Look Back' Single

Jan 29 2018

Grammy and Dove Award-nominated Fireflight independently releases its first new song in nearly three years, 'I Won’t Look Back', Feb. 9. The heavy-hitting, guitar-driven single marks the band’s return to its rock roots and will be the first of several new songs slated to release this year.

Produced by Fireflight and Josiah Prince (Disciple), “I Won’t Look Back” was inspired by John 10:10 and arrives in the wake of the “Me Too” social media movement that has given birth to the voice of those that have been victims of sexual misconduct. An empowering anthem meant to break the binds of those who have suffered abuse, Fireflight loudly offers bold lyrics for victims to declare:

I’ve come to take back what was stolen, your power is broken
I'll drop a match in the shadow, as you explode,
I won't look back


“Living in a culture that is often infiltrated by predators and wolves in sheep’s clothing, far too many have had their innocence stolen and dignity diminished,” says Fireflight lead singer Dawn Michele. “Silenced by fear, victims of sexual assault have been left shrouded in darkness with feelings of isolation and an understanding that no one is willing to fight for them. We, as a body of believers, must advocate for all those who have been used, marginalized and taken advantage of.


“God doesn't want His children to live the rest of their lives trapped in the past, living as victims of tragedy and abuse,” continues Michele. “Jesus came that we would all have life and have it to the full. Let the cry of justice for the oppressed rise up, and cast down every proud thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.”

Featuring Fireflight cofounders Dawn Michele (vocals), Wendy Drennen (bass, backing vocals) and Glenn Drennen (guitar), “I Won’t Look Back” releases during a season that finds the band taking a step back from constant touring to be at home more as they raise their families. While not touring as much, the band members will continue to record and release new music they feel passionate about sharing with their fans.
