Backyard Tire Fire
On the heels of their recent EP release, Skin and Bones (o.i.e. Records), Backyard Tire Fire is back touring the Midwest, Southeast and Northeast through the remainder of 2006. The band will be supporting Will Hoge on 13 dates, North Mississippi AllStars on three dates and headlining a handful of others. December 16th will mark their first annual Backyard Tire Fire and Friends Holiday Jamboree, held in their hometown of Bloomington, IL. All proceeds from the event will be donated to local woman's shelter Safe Haven.

The Skin and Bones EP has created a buzz among indie bloggers receiving accolades from Earvolution, Macktronic, Muzzle of Bees, KyndMusic, Twangnation, Live Music Blog and others. Real Networks' Rhapsody had this to say:

"The sophomore EP from Backyard Tire Fire has enough big guitars and hard-luck yowl to demonstrate a love for heavy roots music and make a bid for the title of their generation's Crazy Horse." –Garrett Kamps

Their Double Door EP release show was fun...

I think I poured myself one too many that night; I was moving too slow the next morning...
