The Philadelphia-based rock band, Fire In The Radio, released the debut record, Monuments, on April 3 via Wednesday Records.
The band adds, “Following New Air, we felt challenged to write an album that delivered fully on the promise of our prior effort. We took a Rick Rubin style approach to editing and creating songs that people who placed their trust in us would want to hear. We combined elements from our favorite records, while still attempting to deliver something that was fresh and visceral.
When we were writing these songs, one of our band members sent around a photograph taken on the Fourth of July. The faded fireworks and resulting haze were reminiscent of historic monuments and rituals that had lost their significance in recent times. We separately liked the concept that songs can inspire and serve as monuments to a time and place of new beginnings. The juxtaposition of these competing ideas became a central theme of the new record.”
Let’s take a look at the band’s new single “EX-SF.” The single follows behind “Let’s Get To The Start,” the band’s first single from Monuments.
