Chingford band Nightfires kick off their 2011 gig schedule with a show at The Standard on 11 February.
The recently formed band are Alan Porter, Tom Hutchison, Matthew Foreman and Eren Nasib. The chaps are working on their first EP and are promising new material at the Standard gig. The Nightfires sound reminds me of early Hell is for Heroes with a bit of US math-rockers Kidcrash thrown in for good measure. A teaser of their forthcoming EP can be found on their Myspace site.
As well as a new EP, Nightfires are also playing the Zenith Bar in Islington on 26 February and the legendary Monarch in Camden on 9 March. It’s looking like an exciting year for this local band. Tickets for the Standard gig are available at the venue. Doors open at 7pm and more details are available here. See you down the front!
