Boysetsfire Release A New Studio Album, 'While A Nation Sleeps..', On June 7th 2013

From humble beginnings playing basement shows in squats to supporting Metallica and playing at the world's largest festivals (Rock Am Ring, Lollapalooza, Warped Tour, Leeds/Reading, Hurricane), pioneers BOYSETSFIRE have become an institution in the hardcore scene and one of the most hard-working bands in the industry.

They are now back with a bang, seven years after their groundbreaking album "Misery Index - Notes From The Plague Years", with a new record, their own label and new shows - the departure from the past, coupled with a fervent inner drive, makes the band's new album 'While A Nation Sleeps...' (June 7, 2013), perhaps the most important hardcore release of the year.
 
Front man Nathan Gray on the new record: "Writing this record was a true labor of love. We didn't want to do this record, we had to do it. Something inside us still ached and we needed to share it with you. 20 years later we still want to inspire. We still want to provide the impetus that inspires. But now we see that we are part of a global community. So we are proud to give you "While A Nation Sleeps... Boy Sets Fire."
 
BOYSETSFIRE also decided to return to familiar ground with the album's release. Produced by guitarist Chad Istvan in his own studio, only the band members themselves or close friends were given access to the recording sessions. The album was then mixed by Lou Giordano, someone with vast experience in bringing together the angular guitar sounds of bands such as Hüsker Dü or Sunny Day Real Estate.. Together with long- time friend of the band and tour manager Oise, the band then founded their own label End Hits Records to provide a platform for Boysetsfire's own output in Europe.
 
Also, on April 20, BOYSETSFIRE will release their first new output for over seven years as part of Record Store Day. Their 7" single "Bled Dry" is perhaps the heaviest track they've ever written. In the accompanying video, a staccato film shows the audience all the cruelty this world has to offer, with more anger and distress in two minutes than most can bear.
