Smoke Or Fire are a crafty bunch. After touring the world on This Sinking Ship and remaining dormant for almost a year we had the good fortune of having a 7â dropped in our laps. Say what? Hold up, thereâs even more. Theyâve been writing, and recording demos for a follow up full length and have plans to tour to Harvest of Hope and SXSW. The 7â is titled Prehistoric Knife Fight and features two brand new tracks. To read more about what went into making the 7â take a peek at what Jeremy from SOF had to say:
So, on January 13th we headed into Sound of Music studios in Richmond, VA with our friend and engineer Casey Martin, to record two songs for our upcoming 7". The record will be titled Prehistoric Knife Fight and will be released again by our dear friends at Fat Wreck Chords. The plan is to hopefully have it ready for Harvest of Hope Festival which we’ll be playing in mid March. It’s been a while since we’ve released anything and we’re all really stoked to finally get something out. Sometime this spring we’ll be finishing up the full length. The songs are called “Speak Easy” and “Modesty”, A and B side in that order. None of this would have been possible without our friends in Landmines who lent us gear, a practice space, an engineer, and a drummer. Thanks guys!! Hope ya’ll like it as much as we do. See you out there.

MySpace is currently premiering our brand new video from Teenage Bottlerocket titled “Bigger Than Kiss.” The song comes from their latest release They Came From The Shadows. Click here to check it out on MySpace right now! Ray from Teenage Bottlerocket had this to say about the video:
When we recorded “Bigger Than Kiss” we knew it would make for a hilarious video. The only problem was getting in touch with Kerry King and KISS to shoot the thing. An animated video made the most sense to us because it was the only way to represent the song without a million dollar budget. We were familiar with animator Ben Levin, and we are fans of his work. We asked him if he would be interested in doing the video, and he was excited to work with us. Soon after we were receiving sample clips from Ben, and we were completely blown away. Mr. Levin really out did himself with this video. We are stoked on how funny it turned out!

We are stoked to announce dream team Tony Sly and Joey Cape are once again joining forces to release a split on Fat Wreck Chords. This two song 7âwill street on March 2nd and is a collaboration not only musically but artistically. Tony and Joey each drew each otherâs side of the 7âcover as Joey Cape recently said, âTony Sly is a great artistâ¦and by artist I mean illustrator. Just look at that cover art.â The fun doesnât end there as both sing backup on one anotherâs song. Joey Capeâs track is a solo acoustic version of a Lagwagon Resolve song. Tony Slyâs is a new original and both are exclusive to this 7â. Tony Sly and Joey Cape will be touring Europe together this winter which prompted the split 7âas Tony Sly describes, âItâs a split 7â with each guy doing vocals on the others song. It was Joeyâs idea because we have this tour coming up together.â Fingers and toes crossed this stellar tour comes stateside. Click here to view their European tour dates.
Tony Slyâs debut full length titled the 12 Song Program comes out on February 16th. Click here to hear a track!

Tony Sly is in the holiday spirit as he just posted a brand new track titled “The Shortest Pier” off his upcoming solo album titled the 12 Song Program due out February 16th. Tony Sly had this to say about the track “This is one of my favorite songs on the new record. It’s pretty dark and moody with sort of an uplifting sounding chorus yet really miserable lyrics about dealing with life by combating it with booze.” Now, go cozy up with your spiked eggnog and pre-order your copy right now by clicking here.
