BoySetsFire have confirmed that they are back together and working on new music with new members, despite splitting back in 2007. Below is the lengthy update about what’s new and exciting for this influential and politically-minded post-hardcore band, which makes use of the word “cassingle.” Who remembers those?
“BoySetsFire has been a band for nearly two decades. In that time we have played hundreds of shows to anyone that would watch us, from basements to festival audiences. We lived through the terror of rap-rock, the tyranny of nu-metal, and the dark days of pop-punk. We were around before the Internet. Truth. We made demo tapes. We have recorded 4 LPs, EPs, CDs, and even a cassingle. We have played ‘Rookie’ over 1,000 times. We have fallen off more stages than most people have stood on. We have been signed and dropped and signed and dropped. Frankly, most would have given up years ago.
“We tried. Like the most well-meaning addict we swore it off, made our amends, and tried to rebuild our lives without BoySetsFire. But the lure was too much. We soon found ourselves in the same situations making the same decisions that lead to so much pain.
“Before we knew it we were on a reunion tour. It was amazing. Then we held our breath crossed our fingers and started writing songs. What came out was music that was even more intense, more fragile, and more brutal than anything we had done before. Even thought to my disappointment there was almost no dubstep. In fact, the writing was so rewarding we decided to keep on writing…and writing…and writing.
“So we have a brand new member (Dan Pelic), an old member coming back (Robert Ehrenbrand), a long-time friend officially joining (Chris Rakus) and the three original gray hairs Chad Istvan, Nathan Gray, and Joshua Latshaw playing together.
“We are writing for a new record. We have tours booked. We are looking forward to another two decades…dear god… [Via Lambgoat]
