How to Catch on Fire on CD

Since forming in the summer of 2007, Burn the Effigy has quickly risen from obscurity by meticulously integrating earsplitting guitar chords, incisive bass lines and dominating percussion. Uprising from the streets of Providence, Rhode Island, these boys have maintained a "no-nonsense" attitude about their unified, yet, diverse sound that echoes remnants of bands such as Bad Religion, Tool, and Brand New. The band members, Greg Baker, vocals/guitar; Nick McGowan, bass/vocals; and Joe a.k.a.-"Viper" Goncalves, drums, have taken the local music scene by storm and are showing no signs of letting up. After releasing their Self-Titled EP in early 2008 (Static Productions 2008), Burn the Effigy has demanded immediate attention. With their "Smart Rock" lyrics and emotionally charged choruses highly contrasted by deafening screams, it's hard to not give this band a closer look. Not unlike their first release, Burn the Effigy's debut album entitled, "How to Catch on Fire" (Static Productions 2008) serves as a testament as to how this alterna-punk power trio can take indifference and flip it on it's ear. Burn the Effigy has proven to be a necessary component in today's local music scene. In a vast sea of overplayed and underdeveloped popular music, the call for change has been answered by these three young, bright, energetic up-and-comers. This bombshell trio, with a do it yourself attitude, is just getting started and will stop at nothing on it's way to becoming a household name. This is Burn the Effigy, and as their debut album so aptly states, this, is "How to Catch on Fire"!! WHAT ARE THEY SAYING ABOUT BURN THE EFFIGY? 'Burn the Effigy strikes just the right balance between aggression and melody, and their lyrics are smart in a way that too few punk bands can match these days.' -Hardcore Haven (album review) 'I really wouldn't be surprised if one or two of these songs found themselves on alternative radio.' -Motif Magazine 'they seem tailor made for Victory Records' -Hardcore Haven (album review)
