New album Outlive Your Body by Firesuite

2017-11-20 03:38:37 UTC

New

Formed by Chris Anderson, with Chris Minor, Richard Storer & Stuart Longden. Firesuite are an ongoing musical endeavour, born out of the desire to create something loud & hugely affecting. Combining polar opposite dynamics, from total white noise, to moments of striking beauty, Firesuite are as complex a unit as you are likely to find out.

"Firesuite was started as a tribute to my little brother, Daniel. That's him on the front cover of You're An Ocean Deep, My Brother. That album was written as a way to reach him somehow. Much of the material on it was written in the immediate aftermath of his death. Outlive Your Body is still very much infused with his memory, but was written more as a way to make him proud.

Daniel introduced me to so many bands, bands I love to this day and were integral to my musical adolescence. He brought home Jeff Buckley, Deftones and Breeders albums all within a few weeks and that was that. Mission complete. I was obsessed.

I have always approached everything we have done as a band with a sense of fatalism, like it will be the very last thing we do. On this occasion, that turned out to be a self fulfilling prophecy. It became clear recording the album, high up in the hills of Sheffield, that this would be the last thing we would ever complete as a band. Given that, it became that much more important that I put everything I have into it. We made the album during a number of sessions at Old Pig Farm spread across a number of years. The project began without any clear direction, we thought we may record a couple of EP's perhaps. As time went on though, it became clear an album was forming. Slowly.

So this is the record. It was pieced together with John Sephton, who became a friend and ally throughout the process. He guided it to completion, along with a few helping hands along the way. We recruited Dave Sanderson to assist in mixing several songs, in no small part due to his incredible work on the 65 DAYS OF STATIC discography. Caroline Cawley came in to add vocals to Little Sacrifices, and Matthew Pronger added layers of brass to swell the end of Harbour. Lucy Revis and Chris Endcliffe lifted Edge Of The Earth and Lights into the upper atmosphere.

The songs are about lots of things. They are about wanting to escape (Harbour), about mine and Daniel's experiences growing up (Eulogy), about close friends (SJVL). They are also about the band coming to an end. Lights was intended to be the soundtrack to this.

I am so proud of this record. We have worked so hard to build it into the thing it is. I am very happy to share it with you, and would love if you would share it with others. I am heartbroken about the end, but if something has been worth doing, then this should be how it feels when it ends. "

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
