By definition, a Firebrand is a burning implement of creation and destruction, a visionary individual who incites others to conflict or action, one who deliberately foments trouble and radical change
FIREBRANDS the vision began as a group of revolutionary ideas, a search for truth and freedom under the surface of a straitjacket called home. While the media distract and confuse, there is incongruence, suppression and greed. What began as a question became an answer, then a journey. Seize the freedom in hand and never give up.
Originating in a cultural milieu where geography is quickly becoming meaningless, the lineup completed with 5 members of 5 different cultures. They came together with individual musical and personal backgrounds as different as can be, but they have been bent and forged together by the same restless, indestructible spirit that demands action, and an outlet. A huge outlet. There are no speakers in the world loud enough for this message.
Musical influences come from Rage Against the Machine, System of a Down, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Who, Faith No More, Metallica and more.
Performing their furious blend of heavy rock, funk, and turntable SFX at gigs since July 2005, they generated an electric hum in the club circuit and within the global music community
Some recent notable performances in 2007 were opening for PUDDLE OF MUDD and TOMMY LEE in Dubai in the UAE, and for JET in Singapore
In Sep - Oct 07, Firebrands was booked to perform at LOCOBAZOOKA (headliners HEAVEN & HELL(BLACK SABBATH), QUEENSRYCHE, ALICE COOPER, SHADOWS FALL and more) in Boston, MA, USA, as well as almost a dozen other shows in New York, Los Angeles and other places in between... but because of an inexplicable rejection at the US Embassy in Singapore of the Russian guitarist's visa, they had to put the whole tour on hold
The US tour is being re-planned. America, we hope to have the pleasure of playing for you soon. Meanwhile, the band would like to thank all our friends and fans who are supporting this tour, and all the people working with us in the States to get this show back on the road. You guys are the best
