Cities on Fire are a Newcastle based band, playing their own brand of post-hardcore/heavy rock. Taking a wide range of influences from bands like Thrice, Funeral For a Friend and Every Time I Die, Cities on Fire aimed to create their own unique sound.
Before releasing any official recordings, the band landed slots with touring bands such as Exit Ten, Lower Than Atlantis, The Casino Brawl and The Defiled, based purely on the reputation of their energetic and exciting live show. Nearly two years were spent gigging wherever possible, writing songs, skinny-dipping in Bridlington, non-stop partying and documenting it all on YouTube.
Now in 2012, with their debut EP fresh off the press, Cities on Fire are gearing up to take their music to the next level.
