Ever Since The Lake Caught Fire

BandAlternativeRock

Thrashing guitars. Soaring melodies. Driving rhythms. Gang mentalities. Sporadic brass. Brooding keys. A 14-legged live behemoth. Not easy to pin down. With an ever expanding sonic arsenal, ESTLCF are a brotherhood brought together through an unconscious passion to do nothing but... this.

Biography

Ever Since The Lake Caught Fire hail from Tyneside’s coastal towns of Whitley Bay and Tynemouth. After spending a year gathering local support through impassioned live performances, described by one local music mag as 'effortlessly switching between parent-baiting grunge and contemplative ambient prog', the band released a self titled e.p. which earned them a place on the Unsigned Stage at Leeds Festival as well as the chance to represent the North East at 'In The City' in Manchester.

Staying true to their DIY ethic, ESTLCF joined forces with local independent label ‘Pay For The Piano Recordings’ to release their debut single 'A Fire Born in Dallas' which was produced by ‘iForward Russia!’ frontman Tom Woodhead. The single, described in The Metro Newspaper as having 'post-hardcore and prog influences welded together to create a sound that is both vulnerable and self assured' achieved radio play on Steve Lamacq’s Radio 1 show and Tom Robinson’s BBC 6music show. To capitalise on this exposure, ESTLCF embarked on their first UK tour which was followed up with a string of dates in Poland.

New double A-side Single 'The Sea/Warden Rock' has received praise from Tom Robinson on the BBC6 Music Introducing show, stating: "A record like that.. if it got pushed around by the right record label and pluggers and influential people at the NME told us it was alright to like it, it would be all over the 6music playlist like a rash."

Now currently standing at 7 live members (at time of press), Ever Since The Lake Caught Fire have plans. Great plans. Following an over-capacity, sold-out, riotous comeback show to support the new single, ESTLCF will be releasing live favourite "President" as the perfect end to a hopefully boozy and sun-kissed summer, 2010. After that... well... that debut album we've been waiting for, of course...
