Cars on Fire//New Album Sampler

I came into contact with Cars on Fire about a year ago, when I got my hands on their 2009 release Dig Your Own Grave. It is still in heavy rotation on my iPod, as the 7 song effort NEVER gets old. I actually find it refreshing each time it shuffles through my collection of tunes while driving, and I always find myself reaching for the dial to crank it up a few extra notches. It is a record best served loud, and it will either make you want to party and/or destroy something.

Now, for the reason we’ve gathered here. Cars on Fire have a new release coming out in 2012, and they’ve released a sampler video for the next collection of songs. As far as I know, the release date is still to be determined. I’ve had a little contact with the band via their Twitter account (@carsonfireband) regarding this, and they let me know that they’ve encountered a few setbacks with the new record and they are “just trying to finalise some things but as soon as we have any news we’ll put it up on here”, so stay tuned to that.

 

This is going to be an awesome release, and will probably find it’s way onto my Best Of list as the new songs sound even better than the now 3 year old Dig Your Own Grave material.

The video is below. Check it out and SHARE it with as many people as you possibly can, because music this good needs to be heard!

March Release Dates

March is shaping up to be a month full of great album releases. I know that it may be a bit early, but not much is coming out this month that I am excited about. However, it is never to early to give anyone who reads this a heads as to what is in store for us. Months like this just don’t seem to come along as often as we’d like! Well, the stars have aligned for us metalheads out there and it is something to be very excited about! There are other releases coming out, of course, but below are the ones that I am eagerly anticipating.

Friend for a Foe EP Delayed

Something I was looking very forward to will have to wait until February. Not a huge delay, but Friend for a Foe are going to be releasing their now 9 song EP sometime in the shortest month of the year. The original EP was set to be only 6 tracks, so at least the wait will be worth it. Besides additional tracks, the album will feature vocals by Greg Pope of Monuments, another band I am recently getting into.

 

The singer for this band, Chris Barretto, was once the vocalist for Periphery before their Sumerian Records release. The guy has a great set of pipes and in conjunction with the incredibly talented musicians, this EP is set to be amazing. In the meantime, head over to their MySpace or their Facebook to check out their song “Niacin”.
