Backyard Tire Fire New Videos, New Tour


Backyard Tire Fire continue their extensive 2010 touring schedule, including a date in Chicago at the Double Door on July 23rd, which is being recorded for influential radio station WXRT’s live “Sunday Night Concert” series, and in New York City at the Bowery Ballroom on August 3rd, opening for Los Lobos‘ CD release show. BTF’s current tour schedule is below.

BTF is building on the momentum of their new record Good to Be, which was produced by Grammy-winning producer and member of Los Lobos, Steve Berlin. For the band’s fifth full-length release, BTF have spread the stylistic court with a rich, ever-expanding palette of aural rock ’n’ roll colors and textures that tap into bouncy, Kinks-meet-Squeeze Brit pop-rock, Tom Petty-styled Southern rock, and Beatles-esque majesty.

Here are two new videos from the band: The charming official clip for the title tune – smiles everyone! – and a live take on “Brady,” the tale of a young man who saves his after-school job earnings for something a bit juicier than a bicycle.
