Introducing: Signs of Fire

"Signs Of Fire are a five-piece hard rock band from the Midlands. Whilst placing an emphasis on the traditional rock sounds of the late 60’s and 70’s, their influences span many genres and eras through to the present day; from Sabbath to the psychedelics of Hendrix, Floyd and Zeppelin, the 80’s blues rock of Aerosmith and Guns n’ Roses, through to the modern alternative rock of Pearl Jam, the Chili Peppers and Alice In Chains. Signs of Fire started playing together early 2013 and it was clear to all members that they had something different. Held together by a love of the classics–from Sabbath and Zeppelin to AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses–with the desire to create something fresh. SoF began writing original material. After some fine tuning and some late nights the band has created their own sound that rock is crying out for."

Signs of Fire came to FatCat Radio's attention via the Music Submission Form. Their debut EP, Bottom of the Well was released earlier this month. Available for purchase via Bandcamp.

Electric Ruin has called it quits

"Unfortunately, Electric Ruin is calling it a day. Thanks to everybody who supported us!!"

Despite a relatively short run on the station (little over a year) and only four tracks in rotation I was bummed to learn that Electric Ruin (Ottawa, Ontario) has decided to shut it down. Their self-titled EP is exceptional and I was hoping to hear more from the band. You can of course still hear 'em on FatCat Radio and I would strongly advise picking up the aforementioned EP over at Bandcamp (FREE download).
