Afire is a melodic hard rock band hailing from Oulu, Finland. The band was formed in 2016 when vocalist Suvi Hiltunen joined forces with long-term Oulu-based musicians guitarist Antti Leiviskä (ex-Poisonblack, Brüssel Kaupallinen), guitarist Sami Kukkohovi (ex-Sentenced, KYPCK), bassist Harri Halonen and drummer Tarmo Kanerva (ex-Poisonblack).

 

The band´s debut album, “On the Road from Nowhere” is due to be released on November 16th by Concorde Music Company. The album was recorded in various locations during the winter 2017-2018. The vocal tracks were produced and recorded by Jonas Olsson (Amorphis, Poisonblack) and the album was mixed by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Moonspell, Apocalyptica).  

 

Here’s how the songwriter Harri Halonen comments the album:

 

"I´ve had a bunch of songs for quite a while, but for which I didn’t have an outlet, so we started Afire. With Suvi’s vocal lines and lyrics, the songs started molding into their current shape, and we finished them together. Lyrically the album is about leaving, departing. It’s not a theme album, but the lyrics do revolve around the subject anyhow."


 

“Let Me Be the One”, the first single from the album, is already available on major digital services.

 

So, if you’re into catchy choruses and groovy, solid rock music, Afire is a band you definitely need to check out!
