Boysetsfire Reforming

by | Oct 5, 2010

Boysetsfire will be reforming in December. The band released the following statement:

“We were never a normal band. We never did the right things. We never looked cool. We did everything exactly the way we wanted. Trends weren’t important. Being hip wasn’t important. There were only two things that were important and sancrosanct; the friendship between the five members of this band, and people who we touched with our music.

We were a band for over a decade. We decided that we wanted to try different things with our lives. So we stopped playing music together. It wasn’t Noel/Liam Gallagher ugly; we parted as friends and we generally see or talk to each other all the time.

I think we underestimated how much we would miss it. The communion, the intensity, the genuine outpouring of emotion- it just doesn’t exist for us without BoySetsFire.

So we are going to start playing together again.

All we know now is that BoySetsFire is playing in Berlin on December 5, 2010.”
