Good Day Noir Family,

Beyond The Neverglades is Friendly Fire’s Album

This band offers sincere and direct alternative rock with punk nuances.

As soon as I pressed the play button I realized that I was in front of musicians with great passion and a lot of experience behind them.

Friendly Fire has a touching history as the band member Chad O’Quinn passed away leaving the band in a period of oblivion. However, these guys have reorganized themselves to honor the memory of their friend who is perhaps helping them from another dimension.

These real-life stories behind a musical project have always fascinated me a lot as they add something metaphysical to the artists’ way of composing music.

Friendly Fire play real music, the one made of instruments and not of computers and beats… the one made of sweat and blood during rehearsals.

Beyond The Neverglades is a solid and mature album, I liked all the songs and I recommend this talented band to everyone.

Beyond The Neverglades is Friendly Fire’s Album

Formed in 2016 in Jacksonville, Fl as an excuse to play around guitarist and song writer, Josh Sanders’ neighborhood bars and ‘temporarily’ named after a jawbreaker song on the eve of the first of those very bar shows. The band started taking things a little more seriously with the addition of guitarist and recording engineer, Chad O’Quinn, Now being able to record and release music the band decided to record a full length. Tragically, O’Quinn passed away unexpectedly before vocals were recorded and 3 weeks before the band was set to play FEST in Gainesville. Luckily, a few of Sanders’ friends came to the rescue including Ben Bennett of Kid you not and Warren Cooke of local friends Flag on fire, and the show was able to go on and serve as a memorial for friends in the scene to pay their respects to Chad.

After a few months of inactivity and a couple of members moving on, the band was able to acquire the tracks for the album they’d been working on and finish it, around the same time new drummer/ singer and songwriter, Cheyenne Lefaivre entered the fold and the band began writing and recording again, as well as playing shows all around the southern states. The ‘terminal wanderlust’ lp was released on vinyl one year after O’Quinn’s passing in October 2019. The band is releasing their first post-covid ep entitled ‘don’t die alone’ for mental health awareness month on 5-27-21 and is looking forward to playing FEST in October.
