Backyard Tire Fire Tour

Backyard Tire Fire Summer Tour

Backyard Tire Fire
The tour rolls on for road warriors Backyard Tire Fire. Fresh off a two week run with Cracker in the Northeast, the band jumps back out in June and July with a string of dates with Reverend Horton Heat and Gov't Mule. They will also be playing several notable festivals including 10,000 Lakes Festival, The Forecastle Festival, Tall Tree Lake, Wicker Park Fest, River Roots Live Festival.

Steve Berlin of Los Lobos had this to say about the guys: "It takes a pretty special band to rivet the attention of everyone in my band, and Backyard Tire Fire certainly are. Great songs, great playing and great guys. In my opinion they are one of America's best young bands."
