"We have taken a Post-Punk foundation and given it a cutting-edge sound
Flowers in Flames fuses elements of Post-Punk, Psychedelia and Shoegaze. Formed in 2006 and hailing from Northeast Ohio, the band counts influences such as Joy Division, My Bloody Valentine, David Bowie, Velvet Underground and Pink Floyd but ultimately creates music that is fresh and new.
The band's self-titled debut album, released in 2008, contains ten original tracks mixed by the band with Todd Tobias of Guided by Voices, distributed by Shinto Records. It was well-received and acclaimed by publications such as The Big Takeover (NYC), Skyscraper (Chicago), Mick Mercer's Journal, blog and book 'Music to Die For' as well as many other media sources worldwide.
Flowers In Flames released its second studio effort, 'Everything And Nothing' in November, 2012, a four-song EP on Zorch Factory Records (Paris, France), digitally distributed in Europe through afmusic (Duisburg, Germany). It spent nine weeks on the European Alternative Charts, reaching number 7 as highest position. The new material explores further sound textures whilst retaining the energy of the band's first release.
Flowers In Flames has performed with artists such as ex-Marilyn Manson guitarist Zim Zum's band Pop Culture Suicides; Martin Atkins of P.I.L., Killing Joke and Pigface fame; Kevin Junior (Chamber Strings); The Baptist Generals and played WRUWs 91.1 FM Studio-A-Rama, where Mission of Burma headlined.
