As The Boys Set Fire is A Long Way Down’s Single Out Now

The powerful and direct sound of this band immediately conquered me.

It is clear that we are dealing with a band that spends a lot of time in the rehearsal room. They have in fact achieved an enviable musical alchemy between them.

Their sound strikes solid and compact. The guitars are aggressive and the bass and drums follow each other like a shadow. The singer’s voice is vulgar and sincere, perfect for the genre … it manages to convey a veil of nostalgia to the melody. A bit like Greg Hetson of Bad Religion.

As The Boys Set Fire is a tune built impeccably on a melodic and dynamic level and keeps you glued to the speakers from the first to the last second.

A band to keep under the radar as they produce quality music.

The band name is quite obviously and intentionally borrowed from the novel by Nick Hornby. The fascinating thing about this book is the spirit it creates within the group of protagonists and with which we as a band can also identify. After all, all musical endeavors are all well and good, but if the spark doesn’t fly, there’s no point from our point of view. We are certainly far from perfect in what we do, but we really enjoy it, especially when there is sometimes that one moment when everything in a song fits together and it suddenly sounds and feels the way you imagined it.

When it comes to the question of what kind of music A Long Way Down do, you can imagine that any band that doesn’t intentionally put themselves in a certain category hates that question 🙂 Unconsciously, everything we’ve heard in the last 23+ years that has influenced us since then flows into us. And there was everything from punk, rock, hardcore, metal, metalcore to hip-hop and singer-songwriter stuff. And we are curious what else we can present you here, in this sense have a good time and follow us with pleasure.
