Firesuite are a rock band from [ Sheffield in the UK ]. They have released four EPs [ Bottled Sounds Of Me For You ] ~ EP 2 [ Forever December ] and recently [ Are You In Remission ]? They are currently at work finishing up their debut LP which is set to hit ” BandCamp ” sometime mid March 2011 then onto iTunes / Spotify etc shortly thereafter.
Firesuite current Line-up include:
Chris Anderson – Vocals, guitars
Sarah Griffiths – Vocals, Guitar
Chris Minor – Bass, Keys
Richard Storer – Drums, style
[ Amity ] is the first track to be taken from Firesuite’s as yet untitled forthcoming long player, recorded over the best part of a year with long-term collaborator Tom Henthorn (Are You In Remission?).
Amity showcases the progression made from earlier recordings, with its dense, cascading melodies and lush undercurrents, giving way to a surge and swell of volume at its climax. It serves as an apt introduction to the long gestating album. The band also recently recorded a [ BBC Live session ] and played with acts such as [ Rolo Tomassi ] and [ Monotonix ].
~~~~~~~ ( This is just a before taste of the EXPLODING debut album that’s about to decent from heaven. Amazingly lush sound with gigantic waves cross referencing with the likes of [ My Bloody Valentine and Amusement Parks on Fire ] or [ Junius and Swervedriver ].
Somewhere in between lays an incredible heavy noise with textured guitars and dense layers of riffs. I personally had a chance to preview the entire upcoming album [ Thank You ” Chris ” ] and as much as I am tempted to leak the album, guys… you just gonna have to hang tight on this one.
