‘Gnarly contemporary sounds and arena-friendly oomph’
Classic Rock Magazine
‘The epic, epic title track from Firekind…just huge!’
The Devon UK modern rock 3 piece released their album ‘What I Have Found Is Already Lost’ Deluxe Edition to rave reviews and gained the most viewed set of the ever growing and passionate Facebook group New Wave Of Classic Rock event Webfest 4. Jas, a previous Guitarist Magazine Guitarist Of The Year winner, states “We really hope people find something in this album for themselves, as much as it does for us. We’re really glad to add to it with the bonus tracks in the times we are all going through. You can either sit around or keep pushing, we choose to keep pushing.”
The band will release their next single and video ‘Cry For Help’ in a Limited Edition CD with 2 bonus tracks in February. This can be bought before general release by signing up to their mailing list www.firekind.com of which subscribers will be sent a secret link to buy a week before the digital release.
Fusing epic soaring vocal and guitar melodies with driving, powerful drums and bass, the band consists of brothers Jas (vocals, guitar and Seth Baccus Guitars Official Artist), Dan Morris (bass, keys) and Robin Shute (drums). Original drummer and good friend of the band. Dan Collings plays on the album. With hard rock and prog roots spiced with an arena sound blent in, it’s hard to pigeon hole them which bodes to a myriad of rock tastes across modern genres.
This is a theme throughout augmented by the acoustic bonus tracks which were recorded and produced by Jas and Dan in their home studio during 2020 Covid-19 lock down. Moving with grief in ‘Coming Out Alive’, living life to the full in the booming opener ‘Adrenalin’ which was included in Classic Rock Magazine Track of The Week, leaving a relationship behind in the brooding ‘If There’s Any Reason’ and the uplifting ‘Sound Of Rain’ A listed by Feedback Radio for 3 weeks all feature with a lingering overarching resonance.
Produced in West Hollywood, Los Angeles by the highly acclaimed and sought after Alain Johannes (Queens Of The Stone Age, Chris Cornell, PJ Harvey) – Jas enthuses “Alain is an amazing man and created such a cool vibe for us the whole time, along with our friends there. We used Dave Grohl’s personal amps, a hybrid of Guns N’ Roses and Jason Bonham’s drum kits! It was so inspiring and pushed us on to give even more than we believed we had already.”
The band have played several successful tours and festivals in the UK, French/Swiss Alps with profile acts including Feeder, Reef, Wishbone Ash, Walter Trout and Ocean Colour Scene. Previously in 2013, they won the Global Battle of The Bands final in Chiang Mai, Thailand having blazed their way through the UK and Europe heats.
Along the way there have been escapades partying with the Foo Fighters in London at the ‘Sound City’ film launch, trading muffins for beer with Tinie Tempah, introducing Sharleen Spiteri (Texas) to tequila & orange and teaching Eliza Doolittle how to “Blue Steel”. Firekind are here for fun, to set alight speakers and torch stages.
