Boysetsfire release new music video and song ‘One Match’
New album ‘Boysetsfire’ set for release on 25th September, 2015

Boysetsfire have released a music video for a new single from their forthcoming self-titled album. ‘One Match’ is perhaps Boysetsfire’s most unforgettable tune since the band’s smash hit ‘Rookie’. It’s a blazing torch that will light a thousand others in dark times. Despite the track’s accessibility, its lovingly crafted details show the band taking a huge step forward in terms of songwriting on their sixth album. The video was filmed during Boysetsfire’s very own festival in Cologne in August at a sold out 4,000 capacity Palladium, as well as during the more intimate warm-up show the day before. It illustrates the camaraderie built up by the band within the scene that they’ve helped create. The fact that their Festival was titled “Family First” says everything.

‘Cutting Room Floor’, the first track to be revealed from their forthcoming eponymous record, was premiered on one of their legion of fans’ personal Facebook pages, taking the music back to the masses and keeping the band close to their followers. There is a good reason why the new album, which will be released on September 25th 2015 via their own End Hits Records, is self-titled. It is the final result of a fight for freedom that lasted years and a reawakening of all the strengths within the band, combined with the power of the close bonds between its members. The focus is on their own abilities, something that was not always easy for frontman Nathan Gray, Chad Istvan, Joshua Latshaw, Chris Rakus and their German bassist Robert Ehrenbrand. The captivating euphoria that has been building around the band from Delaware/USA for years has been channeled into thirteen songs that contrast with the rage of the previous album, with rousing optimism seeping from every pore. You could say that the eponymous album is the light-hearted sister of the brooding ‘While A Nation Sleeps’.

Their most recent and most successful album to date, ‘While A Nation Sleeps’ was also released on their own End Hits Records. The album was a sensation, entering the German charts at #22 in 2013, and was followed by sold-out tours, headline appearances at Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park (together with Metallica in 2014), an anniversary tour that included three packed shows in major European cities, and finally the Family First Festival, organized by Boysetsfire themselves and sold out in just a few weeks (August 21, 2015 in Cologne, capacity 4000).

With their forthcoming album and European tour, Boysetsfire will again stand up to the established music industry, proving that absolute belief in your own abilities and the closest possible relationship with your fans are everything.
