On the upcoming tour, the band shares: “Incredibly stoked to be seeing the west coast and honestly a majority of the country once again with our close Florida friends in Capstan. Both of us have new music to play on the tour and we couldn’t be more excited to do so!
And on their new “Worth The Wait” video, the band shares: “We are super excited to be putting out this new music video for our song Worth the Wait. We had the privilege of playing main stage at this year’s Vans Warped Tour stop in Syracuse, NY this summer and without a question had to document the shenanigans of the day. Enjoy!
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 Mike Held (guitar), Daniel Sheehan (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 three EP’s – 2013’s New Beginnings, 2014’s Forget The Past, and 2015’s A Life Inconsistent – a split 7″ with Orlando’s Old Again, and toured the United States extensively in support of all of them. On top of that, Firestarter will be sharing the stage with the likes of Less Than Jake, Bayside, Senses Fail, Set It Off, State Champs, Transit, Hit The Lights, Handguns, and many others.
