MEET THE BAND
Firegarden are agents working in the Sheffield branch of a time travelling bureau. They use their guitars, voice, keyboards and drum kit to extol the virtues of sexy, funky prog 'n' roll.
In 2015 the band released their statement of intent, the new album Choose Your Own Adventure, which was a journey of rediscovery for the band, and a celebration of the new friendships that were forged across a Sheffield live scene that was suddenly a hive of new and exciting activity. They followed this up with 2017's EP 1649, featuring 4 new tracks that had recently made it into the live set.
But change was in the air... the departure of Andy meant that the now 3 piece band had to plough on and make a new version of their sound. The summer of 2017 saw the crafting of their 2018 release Voyage to Crab Mountain. And just as dates were put in the diary to hit the recording studio, the band found Adele Smith - who joined in September as lead vocalist.
By summer 2018, with the album released and a bunch of gigs under their belt, the band parted company with Adele, but have continued to forge ahead with a whole bunch of new gigs and new music coming in 2019.
