“Formed in 2000, Surefire's sound is fresh and as progressive as possible. Their first EP "Dialone", which came out in March has a bunch of goodies to sink your teeth into. The title track (pronouced "die alone") is my personal favorite. Their sound creeps through melodic ups and downs and then drives straight into your cranium with powerful guitar riffs; almost capturing an optimistic outlook of the future. The band has been busy playing local gigs for party favors, all the while working hard to put out their first full length album, which is slated for a winter release. You check out everything they are doing by visiting their website https://www.facebook.com/pages/Surefire/116119791817623. Support these local boys. You will not be disappointed.”
