Immersive riff merchants, THE FIRES BELOW, return with their savage sophomore EP, Thorns, out everywhere on Friday 7th June. The unrelenting Londoners have also just revealed their new single and video, Too Far To Reach -

 Featuring Smithy (Vocals, Guitar), Si (Bass), Del (Drums), and Sam (Guitar), THE FIRES BELOW were formed in 2022 and pool from the energy and vigour of punk rock, the fury of metal, the groove and swagger of stoner, and the technical proficiency of djent. The end result is outright immense and deeply formidable. 


The band’s biting debut EP, Masquerade, landed last year and hailed the quartet’s arrival in supreme fashion harvesting widespread reviews, extensive radio play, and notable critical acclaim. (Read our review of Masquerade below)


THE FIRES BELOW charge forward again with their breaking new EP, Thorns, which manages to stand above the band’s impressive debut. Expressing five prime cuts of delectable heavy rock that pound, shift and bury their way into your senses, the band have certainly delivered on every single front.

Vocalist and Guitarist Smithy comments about the process for the new record: 

“With more experience, we’ve pushed ourselves creatively. This EP really plays to our strengths that we discovered playing live. We mix elements of punk, desert rock, alt-metal and djent for an intense yet melodic cocktail of riffs and emotion. Blast it as loud as you can until the neighbours complain!”

Loaded with their explosive brand-new EP and with the promise of an album in the near future, as well as a slew of live performances, THE FIRES BELOW are just getting started……
