Self-Titled E.P. (2008)



FIRED FOR WALKING is a heavy-pop/hard-indie/whatever-rock band from Houston, Texas. Formed in 2006, after a drunken challenge to start a band, DREW (bass), JOEL (guitar/vocals), MIKE (guitar/vocals) and RICK (drums) set about writing and fine-tuning a batch of songs that were based on the band’s number one rule; play whatever the hell you want. “I don’t care if someone brings in an idea for a neo-classical, death-metal, rap song, we should try and play it.” Joel says, adding, “If it sucks, we don’t play it in public.”

With this musical philosophy intact, FIRED FOR WALKING unleashed its debut recording in Fall 2008. Released on the band’s own label, Four Letter Music, the self-titled, six song E.P. is a potent example of the band’s ability to maintain a variety of sounds, emotions and energy. It’s loose, focused, bright, and dark; a little bit Foo Fighters, a little bit Stooges, with a touch of Queens of the Stone Age... It’s rock and roll that knows what loud amps and good melodies are for.

Future plans for the band include regular touring, writing more songs, recording, playing more shows, touring farther, writing more songs, recording… You get the picture.
