BUSHFIRE from Darmstadt are back with a new record and a new rhythm section. 2017 is the year of „When Darkness Comes“. On their newest opus, the international five-piece with members from USA, Sweden, Portugal, Italy and Germany has stayed true to a heavy, bluesy sound with its southern rock, metal and stoner influences.
The successor of 2013’s „Heal Thy Self“ is focused on existential themes such as life and death. Despite the often somber atmosphere of the tracks, the message of the album is one of hope: that in the darkest hour to search for the light.
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.
„When Darkness Comes“ was released as CD and digital download on October 27, 2017, vinyl in January 2018.
