Job van der Doelen says about the track Winter Is Never (from the album Fireworking At St.Croix) , «Such a terrific song and performance! Amazingly mixed too. This song brings back so many memories of walking through a local sandbank with my friend blasting Tick Tock on our speakers!».
«Dear friends all over the world, with the current events overwhelming us all, this week’s update is just a small one», the band say. «The third single from our upcoming collection of films and live music will be the old favorite of many – Winter Is Never».
In Thomas Andersen’s own words «Gazpacho has always been an anti-band, in the sense that we strive to do things differently. For this reason, we wanted an ‘honest’ live stream where we decided not to play the gig on an empty stage with a light show. Instead, we decided to perform it exactly how we play when we record or rehearse in the actual room we use».

Fireworking At St.Croix, filmed at the band’s rehearsal space in Fredrikstad, Norway, offers fans a very moody trip into the world of The Fireworker, captured on the 25th of October 2020. No fixes, no polishes, no light show and no nothing. Not even catering. Just the pure rendition of the music along with a surprise or two for those of you who have been with the band for a while.
The original stream has now been completely re-edited and expanded with 30 minutes of additional material not included in the original broadcast, all remixed in glorious 5.1 surround sound. The Blu-Ray edition also contains 2.5 hours of bonus material including promo videos, interviews and a bonus concert filmed at the last night of the Soyuz Tour in 2019.
