3 For the Fire are a psychedelic power rock trio out of Providence, Rhode Island. Formed in 2009 by blind singer/guitarist Aaron Roberts with Tobe London on drums, Kurt Rowlinson on bass, and Adam Baldasaro on guitar. The band went to work on their debut self titled album in late 2009. Their influences like Alice in Chains and Queens of the Stone Age melded with Frank Zappa and Mr. Bungle which spawned some strange yet eclectic songs. "We wanted to have an album that was theater of the mind but was still kick ass rock". There sound combines powerful riffs and melodic groove mixed with blues vocal harmonies and stories of myth and science fiction. Recording and mixing the album in their own studio allowed the band to explore a new sound without time limits. Their use of echos and reverbs bring an expansive dreamscape sound to this record "We like using the organic analog effects and then blend them together with a digital processor to try an make each effect warp the other." Released on their own label FireBox Records in January 2011, 3 For the Fire will be touring in support of the new album.
They are currently recording their new EP "AXIS MUNDI".
