Bio

Fire Extinguisher is a pop punk band from Kaohsiung. They sing with a lot of energy, enthusiasm, and dreams! The band's motto is never forget to feel, an attitude that keeps them going even when everything seems totally SNAFU!

After eight years' preparation, Fire Ex released their debut album, Let's Go, in June, 2007. This album plumbs the states of mind that come from having no alternative but to face reality no matter what it brings. The band members used to be high-school classmates from Kaohsiung with similar musical tastes, and their music draws inspiration from real life and real music. Their lives have been no different from other ordinary people. They have dreams and enthusiasm, frustration and anger, love and hurt, pain and joy. The vocalist, Sam, once summed up their attitude in a show at The Wall, Taipei's premiere live house: We are not famous. But we love music and our passion for music will never end! Nothing but genuine passion and total satisfaction at just banging out music. Their music inspires infinite enthusiasm, or even rowdiness and passion for being in the moment. Now, at the ripe age of 24, the band members growing maturity shows in the musical arrangements and structure of their new album. A little taste of post-rock adds vividness to their explosive sound. It is surprising to see a punk band present post-rock arrangements with abundant exuberance, complicated guitars riffs, and rich melodies. But their core remains punk, and punk is not just an attitude but a way of taking life as it comes, and hitting back. Fire Ex will never give up touching people through music with their passion and enthusiasm, no matter how cruel the world becomes or how old they get. This should be the tacit minimal consensus among all Taiwanese regardless of gender or age.

Now, at the ripe age of 30, the band members growing maturity shows in the musical arrangements and structure of their new album. A little taste of post-rock adds vividness to their explosive sound. It is surprising to see a punk band present post-rock arrangements with abundant exuberance, complicated guitars riffs, and rich melodies. But their core remains punk, and punk is not just an attitude but a way of taking life as it comes, and hitting back. 

Fire Ex will never give up touching people through music with their passion and enthusiasm, no matter how cruel the world becomes or how old they get. This should be the tacit minimal consensus among all Taiwanese regardless of gender or age. Let’s Go! We are Fire Extinguisher!

After some successful festival appearing and touring in 2010, Fire EX. made 2 singles for the Kaohsiung Youth Design Fest and the Rise of Legends Tennis Invitational Tournament (invite Andre Agassi and Marat Safin). And then put up their 10th Anniversary concert in July for over 1200 fans enjoying the night of Taiwanese punk rock and sharing their dreams.


In March 2011, Fire EX. went to both Canadian Music Week and SXSW. They recently joined some of Taiwan's most popular bands in the 50,000 audiences Slipper Party 2011, and become the most popular band for the event in their hometown Kaohsiung. In 2012, Fire EX. was invited to Music Matters in Singapore and Summer Sonic in Tokyo.
