The Fiery Furnaces Biography

Matt Friedberger with sister Eleanor, constitutes The Fiery Furnaces' core duo. Matt is four years older than Eleanor and they had a fairly standard sparring-sibling relationship growing up outside of Chicago (somewhat immortally documented in bio for the last album, which they co-wrote). He helped her learn to play guitar, but the two never made music together until 2000. The two moved separately to Brooklyn in 2001 and cohabited for awhile, a situation they're not likely to repeat. They signed with Rough Trade early in 2003 and recorded the basic tracks for their debut album Gallowsbird's Bark in three days.
