Watch a brand new teaser for BoySetsFire's upcoming full-length album, While A Nation Sleeps, here (or embedded below).
BoySetsFire's first studio album in almost seven years, While A Nation Sleeps, is set to be released by Bridge Nine Records in North and South America, as well as Asia and Australia, on June 11th, 2013.† While A Nation Sleeps was recorded at Signal 2 Noise Studio in Newark, DE earlier this† year.† The band's current lineup, which consists of 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, is their best yet.
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 of 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 stood on. They have been signed and dropped and signed and dropped. Frankly, most bands would have given up years ago. Now, BoySetsFire are gearing up to release their first studio album in almost 7 years, marking their first partnership with Bridge Nine Records. BSF guitarist Joshua Latshaw said,† "Our new record is maybe more punk, maybe faster than our other records but its still a BoySetsFire record. Itís emotional post-hardcore with elements of metal, punk and melody. We canít wait for you to hear it!"
