After signing a worldwide deal with major label Zomba, IN CASE OF FIRE are at last set with a November 10th release date for their astounding debut single ‘This Time We Stand’, one of the most anticipated debut releases of 2008. ‘TTWS’ will be released in the UK through Search and Destroy Records, the new record label venture from Raw Power Management (Funeral for a Friend, B4MV, Iron Maiden, Gallows) and distributors PIAS. A heady mix of Muse, QOTSA and Mars Volta style rock and ambition, the track opens with a pounding, foreboding skeletal rhythm before bursting into life with menace, melody and the chorus vocal refrain ‘I am making fires now for you’. Consisting of brothers Colin (drums) and Steven Robinson (guitars, vocals) and completed by Mark Williamson (bass), IN CASE OF FIRE will see their debut album ‘Align the Planets’ set for release in Jan/Feb 09 (exact date TBC).
As well as completing their debut album ‘Align the Planets’ with producer Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters, Echo and the Bunnymen) the band have already spent 2008 touring with 30 Seconds to Mars, Queens of the Stone Age, playing shows with the likes of Kids in Glass Houses, Ash and Biffy Clyro, as well as performances at Download, Oxygen, T in the Park, Rock Am Park and Ring (Germany) and the Reading and Leeds festivals. The band have also won an MTV2 ‘Spanking New’ competition, beating the likes of Adele, Foals, Black Kids and Likke Li to the viewer’s choice of bands to watch out for in 2008!
