Forest Fires: alternative rock band from Edinburgh, Scotland (E109)

About: Forest Fires

Forest Fires: alternative rock band from Edinburgh, Scotland played in E109 of the ArenaCast

"We came up with the band name when I (Walter) was having a cigarette in my garden which overlooks a forest and someone was burning something in the distance so i thought Forest Fires. It wasnt anything special, but it's really hard deciding on band names we must have went through hundreds of suggestions."

Be sure to check out the Forest Fires Bandcamp page to listen and "name your price" purchase the "Recovery" EP.

1. How do you see yourself in 5 years? What is your main goal as an artist?
We just want to making good music and letting as many people hear it as possible. Whether its in little clubs or huge festivals.

2. Can you name some peculiarities that define the music scene in your town/country?
Em. There isn't anything that uncommon many different genres mostly metal but we are trying to change that. haha.

3. What do you think of episode 109? Which of the other featured songs do you like the most?
Quite likes Deny The Lie. We are all very keen on girl rock bands. haha

4. Is there a story behind your song "Avalanche"?
Theres no real story behind Avalanche. It's a song that was actually quite rushed. We were in the studio and were supposed to be recording 2 songs and we had the chosen one but couldn't decide on the other. So we said pretty lets see what happens with Avalanche that wasnt finished at the time and it came out great.

5. Please share your nearest plans. What are you currently working on?
We are currently working on the Culture Shock video and a whole new live set. We are gonna try to improve our live shows a lot more and get some adrenaline vibes.
