Firestate / Press

“Carlos from berkshire based rock band Firestate took the time to talk to us about their views on photography and favourite work. - See full interview in the link below”

“Firestate's EP 'Cities' is unique in it's own way; drawing inspiration from hall of fame worthy musicians, while simultaneously creating something fresh & original for their fans. (See full review here http://littlebearwolf.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/firestate-cities.html)”

“Hailing from Newbury, Firestate recall the likes of Deftones as they weave heaviness with ethereal textures and soulful originality to create something crushing and compelling”

Fiddlers Elbow venue - gig reviews

“Guitar is dead. Blah blah blah. Where are the new bands? Blah blah blah. Well, if you look under the lid of your small town, you’ll probably find a seething hotbed of talent. On a night in Newbury last week, I was fortunate enough to go to a band night. ‘This is a local pub, for local people’ I initially thought, but, you get a real sense of community from the off. Basically, Firestate RAWK! The long hair flows like cider on a summer’s day, and the riffs are bigger than a Euromillions rollover. It’s like the 90′s are slapping you in the face, reminding you of when grunge  and rock took centre stage.”

“Snippets from our Wardstone Review, See full review in our blog at www.reverbnation.com/firestate..... Having worked with the local music scene since 2002 designing all forms of merchandise from the standard Tees and CD’s covers I felt that when I started my own Clothing Range that I should continue this association and spent some time in sweaty audiences working out which band would suit the brand best. Firestate remind me of old Foo Fighters with a touch of Biffy Clyro and some classic British metal thrown in, without any of the cheese, this may not sound like the best way to describe any band, but I can assure you it’s the only way I can, and after you have seen them you will understand where I am coming from.Wardstone are about clean understated style and quality and Firestate fit perfectly within this remit, we are pleased to be associated with them and hope that this association makes us both lots and lots of money, no but seriously, I mean it . . .. lots and lots of money ha”
