After these last years of relative silence, BUSHFIRE from Darmstadt, with international members from USA, Italy, Portugal, and Germany, are back on the map with their new rhythm guitarist, Luis Jacobi. The first shows have been played already in 2022 with some new material being showcased. Their signature blues-heavy sound with southern, metal, and stoner influences is infused with fresh inspiration and is expected to be recorded on a new LP in 2023.
BUSHFIRE were founded in 2004 and, over the years, have made a name for themselves in the stoner, blues and psychedelic communities. They have earned a loyal fanbase by playing with established acts such as Orange Goblin, My Sleeping Karma and Mos Generator, rocking festivals such as Stoned from the Underground, Desert Fest Berlin and Freak Valley, playing local venues and touring all over Europe.
The band has achieved this without any label or management. Because BUSHFIRE in itself means self- determination, passion, freedom, DIY in its purest form: drafting, drawing, designing, even signing their albums in blood.
Their last release „When Darkness Comes“ came out as CD and digital download on October 27, 2017, and vinyl in January 2018. A follow-up is planned for 2023.
