BOYSETSFIRE is: Chad Istvan - Guitar, Rev. Chris Rakus - Bass, Dan Pelic - Drums, Robert Ehrenbrand - Bass, Nathan Gray - Vocals, Joshua Latshaw - Guitar.
BoySetsFire has been a band for nearly two decades. In that time the band has played hundreds of shows to anyone that would watch, from basements to festival audiences. They've lived through the terror or rap-rock, the tyranny of nu-metal, and the dark days of pop-punk. They were around before the internet. They made demo tapes. They recorded 4 LP's, EP's, Cd's and even a cassingle. They have played the song "Rookie" over 1,000 times. They have fallen off more stages than most people have...read more stood on. They have been signed and dropped and signed and dropped. Frankly, most bands would have given up years ago. Now, BoySetsFire are excited to announce that they'll be recording their first studio album in almost 7 years, marking their first partnership with Bridge Nine Records.
The band continued, "We tried. Like the most well-meaning addicts, we swore it off, made our amends, and tried to rebuild our lives without BoySetsFire. But the lure was too much. We soon found ourselves in the same situations making the same decisions that lead to so much pain. Before we knew it, we were on a reunion tour. It was amazing. Then we held our breath, crossed our fingers and started writing songs. What came out was music that was even more intense, more gargle and more brutal than anything we had done before. In fact, the writing was so rewarding, we decided to keep on writing.. and writing… and writing."
BoySetsFire are currently working on their yet-to-be-titled Bridge Nine debut album at Signal 2 Noise Studio in Newark, DE. The band has a brand new member (Dan Pelic - drums), and old member coming back (Robert Ehrenbrand - bass), a longtime friend officially joining (Rev. Chris Rakus, sharing bass duties with Ehrenbrand) and the three original grayhairs Chad Istvan (guitar), Nathan Gray (vocals) and Joshua Latshaw (guitar) playing together. Collapse
