Backyard Tire Fire rockin'

The dudes in Backyard Tire Fire just got signed and announced their new album, The Places We Lived, due out on Hyena Records on August 26. They’ve got three tracks up on their homepage for streaming and we’ve got the title cut here.

There’s a lighter sound coming through on that track that I’m not sure the guys really cut their teeth on yet. They’ve been all about blues stomp and loud rock ‘n roll up until now (for the most part), but then again it’s mostly futile to try and genre-bucket this band judging from the times I’ve gotten to see them live. They’re touring in the MIdwest this summer to support the release, but I’m thinking I need to give these guys a call and see if we can’t bring them out to the West Coast. Read on for the dates, and big shout out to Dodge at My Old Kentucky Blog for getting them setup in Indianapolis.
