Boston’s Fire In The Field immediately makes an impression with their furious style of heavy soul rock, pushing the boundaries of rock n’ roll with energy, depth and detail. Known for dangerous improv overlaid with poetry, the music is an honest attack on the soul played with a sense of urgency and unfettered passion. The band’s signature endorphin-infused, guitar-driven sound has a bluesman’s swagger with a punk heart. Frontman Mike Moore channels Hendrix via Prince, both musically and in showmanship, exploring the limits of the guitar with true abandon. Leaving it all on the stage, Moore pushes the envelope, exploring a melting pot of influences, from psychedelic and blues to funk and R & B.
Pulling unexpected and dynamic improvisations out of his guitar, Moore spins surreal tales as pulsing drums forming the backdrop for his charged stage presence. The live Fire In The Field experience itself is seducing, as even Moore seems bewitched by rock n’ roll, moving like a wild thing around the stage.
With Boston’s music scene under their belt, including plays at The Middle East, The Paradise, and Brighton Music Hall and the band made the trek to play Austin for SXSW in 2017. The band has had a busy year, coming out with two live studio albums, including Live at WMFO (Dec. 2018) and The Pink Noise Session (Mar. 2019), as well as two new singles, Under The Sun (Jul. 2019) and Jimmy Rover (Dec. 2019). Fire In The Field pushed their powerhouse sound with their 2017 heart-pumping, driving rock n’ roll album War Bonnet. The band prevously released three albums, including Fire In The Field (2009), Gypsy Tea Room (2014) and Look So Strange (2016).
Over the last few years the band has been gigging heavily, getting audiences whooped up into a frenzy at venues such as Once Ballroom (Somerville, MA), The Stone Church (Newmarket, NH), Tender Trap (Brooklyn, NYC), The Well (Brooklyn, NYC), Rockwood Music Hall (Manhattan, NYC), Bishop’s Lounge (Northampton, MA), Radio Bean (Burlington, VT), Geno’s Rock Club (Portland, ME), The Parlour (Providence, RI), Ralph’s Rock Diner (Worcester, MA), The Cantab Lounge (Cambridge, MA), New World Tavern (Plymouth, MA), Starlite (Southbridge, MA) among others.
