Surefire / Press

“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.”

“Surefire, from Sacramento, took the stage proving to be the best performance of the night. Their music is described as hard-rock alternative, influenced by Smashing Pumpkins, Tool & Far. Surefire's music started off soft before disclosing its true rock spirit. Their songs had a melancholy feel to them. Singer/guitarist Brian Strand's face showed the emotion that went into the songs he sang and his voice was strong and loud. His guitar riffs were as powerful as his voice. Stark rocked the drums, One song had a dreamlike instrumental break, interrupted by Strand's scream into the microphone. During lighter songs, bassist Brett Martin jumped in time with the music. Surefire ended its set with songs H-Bomb and Pseudo California. Martin capped his performance by dropping to his knees as he played. Surefire is more than just an amateur Nor Cal band. They have the look and feel of a genuine rock band. The lyrics are understandable and you can see the passion on the faces of the band members.”
