JUST LIKE WILDFIRE......................

It has taken a while, being flat out busy is great for such a young band, but right now we are having a short break, re-grouping, writing new songs and getting ready to make some MAJOR announcements, but before all that.....................

We’ve been super quiet on the subject of Wildfire Festival being cancelled only a few short weeks ago until now…and as the date gets ever closer; I’ve been spending a bit of time thinking about what it is that I have to say. 

Now, unlike many who have gone before us – we don’t know ‘the big guy’ on a personal basis very much at all (if you know, you know…). In the short time that we have known him however, he provided us with an amazing opportunity at a very early stage in our career…and even though we won’t have the opportunity to play at Wildfire this year, we will be ever grateful for the opportunity. So, thank you

  As is always the case in an online world, I’ve seen a lot of opinions in the wake of Wildfire’s cancellation…largely words of well wishes, sympathy and support – along with some criticisms, bad experiences and good old fashioned rumour and speculation.  

People are just like music. It is entirely personal, and entirely subjective. No two songs will be heard the same way by any two people on this earth. And just like music, I always find it a bit made that with over 7 billion people on this planet – no two people will ever see us in the same way…so it then comes as no surprise for me to realise just how much we all disagree with one another the way that we all do on a near daily basis. And Wildfire – clearly – is no exception.  

SO THRILLED to be playing @HRH AOR 2019 

Human nature therefore dictates (in my opinion), that we allow our own perceptions and beliefs to get in the way of facts…and at times like this; we need to take a step back and see the bigger picture. Collectively, all together, right now; before it’s too late.   

It’s 2018, and our rock community is alive. It is flourishing. It is literally brimming with a plethora of incredible bands, with awesome music, and with insane potential. And we are ALL a part of it. So just what are we doing to nurture it? Because like it or not, events like Wildfire (along with many, many others) are the absolute foundation of our future. They are a platform for greater things, and if we don’t support them now – just like Wildfire…they will disappear, and they will take with them a potential that is burning fiercely within so many young, fresh, up and coming bands around the country.  

Tearing @The Station in Cannock a new one during our D.A.F. set.

 

So just like many already do, I am urging you all – BUY the advance ticket…GO to the gig…SUPPORT the pledge…LISTEN to your independent radio stations and podcasts…SHARE the posts…SPREAD the word…and just like wildfire…you just don’t know how far it’ll spread.

    Well said - a rising tide lifts all vessels - there should be no competition in music - we're all here for the same reason - stand up for your friends, big up the bands you love and let's all take our underground scene to it's full potential. Blue skies, babies Px

    I am resolving to support gigs I am interested in - by buying tickets in advance - so organisers can avoid the uncertainty around financial outlay - that must be terrifying! Hopefully, if more of us do this, what happened to Wildfire won't happen to others.

    Well said Cass 👏👏👏 Not being able to go to my first ‘Wildfire Festival’ has been very disappointing for Me, the Bands I was going to see over that Weekend, All I one place was just Amazing. And I’m sure the Bands, like yourselves are even more devastated, that a chance to Show just how good you All are, has been lost, hopefully only until next year, Fingers Crossed🤞🤞 Hope to catch you again soon 😉🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘

    No one's more gutted than me about Wildfire (well, maybe Dave is!), it was always our family summer holiday and the kids loved getting to see the bands they adore. Festivals like that are so important for wee ones who just can't go to "normal" gigs due to age restrictions. Em went to see Def Leppard when she was 6 but we can't afford that type of gig all the time, gigs which cost a sensible amount of money are not in venues suitable for kids. :( Buying advanced tickets when you can is so important but obviously money's not unlimited. My dilemma now is whether to buy Call of the Wild tickets (which looks amazing!!) or wait and see what happens with Wildfire for 2019. We couldn't go to both since they are weeks apart; fingers crossed for a lottery win!!! Love you guys, looking forward to the new stuff! xx
