LIGHT THE FIRE Carries A Very Loud and Heavy Torch With New Single “Carry On”
New Album “Compassion In Unlikely Places” Is Due To Be Released This Fall Via Standby Records
Dallas-based metal band LIGHT THE FIRE have established themselves as a force within the metal scene in the US with the 2015 release of Lost at Sea, as the record entered the #3 position on iTunes Metal Charts alongside the likes of IN THIS MOMENT and AUGUST BURNS RED.
The band’s 2016 sophomore release Ascension debuted at #35 on the iTunes Rock Charts and 182 on the Billboard Independent Charts.
With the release of Carry On, fans can anticipate the new full-length album entitled, Compassion In Unlikely Places slated to drop this fall from Standby Records.
Frontman SETH DAVIS says, “While we’re an aggressive/intense band, one thing we’ll never be is hateful. We do not stand for violence or general disrespect of anyone for any reason. Carry On touches on these very subjects. Acceptance, equality, love, and understanding are something that means a lot to every member of this band. Our upcoming album is titled “Compassion in Unlikely Places” and it comes straight from the lyrics on this video. We realize that the genre of music we play and overall aggressiveness of it might give certain people the wrong impression of what we stand for. With this new single, we want to spread the message of exactly what we’re about and what we stand for. Thanks for reading, and we love you all. Hope the song means as much to you as it does to us.”
