The long awaited debut album from Firekind is finally here!
Recorded over in Los Angeles and produced by legendary producer/musician Alain Johannes, the album features 10 stunning tracks.
From Jas: ‘
When we were writing these songs in little old Devon we never knew that we’d be recording them right in the centre of Hollywood. Especially with such a legendary producer and musician as Alain Johannes.
It was an absolute pleasure working with him, he was so welcoming and knew just how to get the best out of us in the studio.
Alain is one of those guys that maybe not everyone has heard of, but when you look at his discography, you’ll see that he has worked with and been pivotal in the success of some of the greatest rock bands: Queens Of The Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, Eleven, Chris Cornell, this list goes on….
Whats more, is that he knows everyone in Hollywood. When I explained to him that it was going to cost too much money to bring my favourite guitar amp with me on the plane, he said ‘don’t worry man, Dave (Grohl) has one of those. I’ll ask him if we can borrow it’. So yeah, I recorded through one of Dave Grohl’s amps!
I think i’ve got a picture with it somewhere.
A lot of the songs on this album deal with the death of mine and Dans father. Not so much about wallowing in loss and self pity, but by coming out the other side (of grief). Our Dad was such massive part in our lives, he’s the reason why we’re even musicians and he was in a band with us for 8-9 years, then managed the band before he died.
So we have songs that are about learning to live with and accept loss, like ‘Coming Out Alive’ but also tracks that are about the better things in life, like ‘Sound Of Rain’.
It’s our debut album as Firekind and we are very happy to finally get it out in the world.’
