Download This!: Backyard Tire Fire – “Good To Be”

Dear blog,

Today I had a long day at work and really just wanted to get up and run away.  The time was moving slow and my concentration was long gone by the lunchtime hour.  I tried listening to my iPod and nothing was capturing my attention.  I was having difficulties finding something to jam to and it was making the day crawl even slower.

I just was not having it.

Luckily I got an email from my pals at Thirty Tigers and everything changed.  They emailed me to tell me about a band called Backyard Tire Fire.  I admit I chuckled at the band name but knew it had to be something interesting if the three decade big cat people were sending out emails about them.  I decided to take a moment and check out the video…

Needless to say that was all it took for me to become a fan.  On February 16th the band will be releasing Good To Be on Kelsey Street Records / Thirty Tigers.

In support of the release the band will be touring all over the place and will be making a stop in Cleveland on May 1st at the Beachland Tavern.  I have a feeling it’s going to be one of those shows not to be missed.

Thirty Tigers had this to say about the release:

Over their eight-year career as a band, Backyard Tire Fire has created a presence in the music world that is hard to ignore. Their fifth full length release Good To Be was produced by Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin and is a culmination of guitarist/vocalist Ed Anderson’s 13-year journey on the road of rock and roll. With this release Backyard Tire Fire delivers an album full of working-man songs that demonstrate their upbeat, glass half full approach to life.
