High On Fire Offer Free Download After ‘Spitting Fire’ Album Mastering Mistake
High on Fire are making good on a recent mistake which led to the omission of the song ‘Hung, Drawn And Quartered’ from the second volume of the group’s ‘Spitting Fire’ live album. Due to the error, a free download of the song is available at this site.
“After our CD’s were delivered to the label we realized the wrong master was sent to the manufacturing facility for ‘Spitting Fire Vol. 2,’” said the band on their Facebook page. “We apologize to you our fans for this honest mistake.”
The albums were recorded during the band’s back-to-back performances at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom and Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg. The set includes songs from the group’s previous six studio albums, including last year’s effort ‘De Vermis Mysteriis.’
With this month’s release of their double set, the band may take a bit of a rest for the next couple of months due to vocalist Matt Pike’s impending knee surgery. During his downtime, however, Pike and his bandmates will start developing ideas and riffs for their next album.
Last summer, High on Fire canceled their participation on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival as Pike entered rehab for alcohol addiction. With the live set release, a healthier Pike, and new material in the offing, High on Fire continue to push forth, and for now that’s all that matters.
