“With a new pop punk band like Firestarter, comparisons to Real Friends,
Man Overboard, and the like are inevitable and apt, but…Forget the Past can easily
hold its own against both bands’ most recent releases.” – Under The Gun Review
Albany, NY – January 15, 2014 – Pop punk band Firestarter are excited to announce that they will be embarking on a month-long US tour this winter. The quartet will be hitting the road with Trophy Wives, Nominee, and Such A Mess starting February 13th in Poughkeepsie, NY and wrapping on March 8th in Henderson, NV.

“Have you ever just packed everything you own, and left somewhere you’ve known for so long and traded it in for the unknown” singer/guitarist Matt LaPerche croons on “49 Stow” – these are the words Firestarter was built on when LaPerche moved to Albany for a fresh start. The group, also consisting of Tyler McMullen (guitar), Jeff Henlin (bass), and Matt Bliss (drums), came together in the fall of 2012. They hit the ground running and haven’t stopped since. In just over two years, Firestarter has released two EP’s – 2013’s New Beginnings and 2014’s Forget The Past – a split 7″ with Orlando’s Old Again, and toured the United States extensively in support of all of them.
Firestarter has no plan of stopping now. With the release of a new EP recorded by Jay Maas (Counterparts, Defeater, State Champs) on the horizon, be sure to keep this Albany, NY band on your radar this year.
Firestarter released their latest EP Forget The Past on May 13th, 2014. Download it for free, here: http://bit.ly/1KKCXAz.
