A Backyard Tire Fire show is just that – rocking, loud, and fun. They’re currently on tour supporting their newest album, The Places We Lived, and the new tunes couldn’t hold up any better in a live setting.
t’s true, and cliché, to call a band like Backyard Tire Fire guitar heroes. And with all the nasty licks and six-string thunder on their newest album, The Places We Lived, it’s difficult to resist from noting this. But this impressive piece of work is more than a heap of broken guitar strings, it’s rather a complete presentation built on solid songs, brief harmony, and homespun musicianship, and it shines.
