Say hello to your new favorite band. Well, that is, of course, if you enjoy a band that blends upbeat punk, infectious pop hooks, and even a dash of melodic hardcore flavoring. Fireworks hail from the unlikely location of Detroit, Michigan and, while they are not everywhere yet, with their new EP, We are Everywhere, in hand, the band is going to be very soon.

Fireworks kicks off the EP with "From Mountain Movers, To Lazy Losers." One could loosely describe the sound of Fireworks here as pop-punk, but there are small elements of other styles of music permeating from their music, not unlike The Movielife's This Time Next Year. Mixed amidst the bubblegum power pop-punk riffs and catchy one-liners are intricate guitar melodies and grooves of indie rock and even some hardcore-esque gang-vocals. "The Midnight Society" is a great follow-up track; I am especially fond of the drumming, something that doesn't get much credit in music these days unless you're in a tech-metal band. Seriously, playing drums is hard - I tried it!

If there were to be a single, "Cardellini" would be that song. The chorus features the infectious hook "Calling all cars, we got an emergency / we'll clear the streets on the count of three / to make way for the parade." Sure it sounds like a b-side from Fall Out Boy's Take this to Your Grave, but that is a damn good record.

"You Weren't Born with a Bag of Sand in your Hands" is another song with a great chorus "Friends are your friends, not your competition / Living a life of high five interceptions / and you'll never play for this team." Expect to see that line in AIM profiles and Myspace accounts in the near future. "Michigan Boys Needs to Get a Clue" and "Don't Blame it on the Ocean Floor" round on this fantastic EP with more of the goodies that were showcased in the previous tracks. The EP concludes after a short recess in silence with an acoustic number. While I'm not really sure on the background for this song, but it seems to emote a traditional emo message, i.e., a girl and a boy parting ways and his confronting the idea of being alone.

We are Everywhere is quite the debut from these five fine gentlemen from Detroit. With some substantial touring and press I can see these guys getting huge. They definitely have the talent and the heart; all they need now is the big break. -

Fireworks - We Are Everywhere EP
Posted on 06-20-07 by Nathan Lint
Record Label: Run For Cover
Release Date: December 17, 2006


Fireworks is an outfit out of Detroit, Michigan featuring former members of Let It Die and Stranger On A Train. They play a fun, yet unoriginal brand of pop punk that won't take you long to get into.

How Is It?

The We Are Everywhere EP is just a taste of what we can expect from the quintet. The EP starts off with the anthemic "Mountain Movers To Lazy Losers" which makes you believe that this band is going to be around for a while. Then you will shift foward with "Midnight Society" where you're preached "We Are All We'll Ever Need". "Michigan Boys Need To Get A Clue" is another instant classic complete with gang vocals. This band has the sound, the background, and the balls to be the next big thing.

Recommended If You Like: Hit The Lights, Set Your Goals, Pop Punk with Hardcore Influences, and your occasional handclaps and gang vocals.

""This Shows a whole boatload of promise." -Alternative Press"

“We are Everywhere” is the six song debut from Detroit, MI's Fireworks. Their sound is reminiscent of midwest buddies Hit the Lights and they recently finished off a US tour with Set Your Goals and Just Surrender. “Imagine New Found Glory updated for the new millenium with more fluid guitar parts. This shows a whole boatload of promise. We bet you'll be hearing from these guys very soon.” - Alternative Press - Alternative Press

If you haven't yet heard, Fireworks are everywhere. At least they plan to be. Breaking into the over-saturated pop punk scene riddled with gimmicks and cheesy one-liners, the infectous songs of Fireworks transcend the clutter with truly infectous hooks and undeniable energy.

After a few initial demos and sharing the stage with top notch local and touring bands in and out of Michigan, a fan who was also owner of Run For Cover Records showed interest in the band. With his help, Fireworks decided to go all in and spend a week at Nada Recording Studio in New York. 2006 will see the result as a debut 6 song EP titled We Are Everywhere.

Whether blasting through your speakers, stuck in your head, or on stage in your hometown, Fireworks plan on being everywhere.
