Backyard Tire Fire rockin'

The boys in Backyard Tire Fire have announced their Spring/Summer 2007 tour and it’s shaping up to be quite interesting, if you ask me…

They’re opening some dates for Clutch, who — if I remember correctly — is a hardcore band. It’s funny, though — my friend emailed me a link to their latest YouTube video just yesterday and there’s an obvious bluesy-ness to it. Even the comments on that video say it all – “I cant believe this band used to play hardcore.” It’ll be interesting to see how crowds react…

And given that Backyard Tire Fire really can do no wrong following up their latest effort, Vagabonds & Hooligans, I’m sure they’ll win over plenty of new fans that might not have even known that Clutch wasn’t a hardcore band anymore. Full tour dates after the jump.
