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 , 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 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 wasn’t a hardcore band anymore. Full tour dates after the jump.
