FIRE FOLLOWS RELEASE THEIR NEW SINGLE "HOME"
"The song’s musical arrangement is a heavy, melodic hard rock composition. At points, it lends itself to comparison to works from Sevendust. At others, the rapping gives the song a more nu-metal style sound and approach. The combination of those two elements makes the composition an interesting presentation as a whole." - Phils Picks Review
Fire Follows continues to bring their sound from their mile-high city of Denver, Colorado, and as their next release, "HOME" shows there is not only a shift but another inevitable layer to what Fire Follows brings.This single release signifies a hard rock level of symphonic proportions but it shows Fire Follows approach to their music, clearly marking this band's abilities on multiple levels. "HOME" is blended, powerful, and an artistic work that delivers in multiple layers and dimensions. Their fans have come to expect more than just one style or sound from Fire Follows and their new listeners once they discover this about Fire Follows will grab on to their music and refuse to let go.
Fire Follows' newest single "Home" is a high-energy, symphonic hard-rock masterpiece that is sure to appeal to a wide range of rock/pop/modern music fans. The track incorporates their unique rap/rock style, with the usual anthemic chorus that is sure to have the listener singing along. You'll hear the use of strings from the very first second, and the song bursts into the full band with a brutal scream from Chris singing, "Will You Bring Me Home." As usual, the track has a broad dynamic range, even bringing in a beautiful string/piano breakdown in the bridge, followed by a full orchestral/metal instrumental leading the listener to the last chorus. The song wraps up with a dual melody between Chris and Tim and showcases the differences, yet powerful blending of their two distinct voices.

Founded, crafted, and led by vocalist, musician, producer, and writer Chris Watt, the band delivers a melodic, yet heavy rock sound that is defined by anthemic choruses, beautiful piano interludes, and the perfect blend of rap/scream/sing vocals. In an effort to build a dynamic band that is capable of touring in 2021, Chris brought in seasoned musicians Tim Yunker (sing/rap), Emily Gould (drums), and his brother Tyler Watt (harmony/scream). Their influence can be immediately felt on their last release "Glass Grenade” every single release, showcases Tim’s gospel/soul-inspired vocal stylings, Emily’s dynamic and precise drumming techniques, and Tyler’s rich harmony/backing vocals. Fire Follows gained tremendous industry attention with the If It’s War You Want EP release in 2019, and expects that trend to continue with their singles being released in 2021. The songs demonstrate Chris’s ever-evolving writing style, and with a radio-ready production quality, are sure to cut through the industry noise. The sophomore release utilizes more scream vocals than its predecessor, and the addition of Tim, Emily, and Tyler has taken the overall sound to a whole new level. The hooky choruses are sure to produce multiple hits and will be enjoyed by fans from pop, classical, and country genres, in addition to traditional hard-rock/metal fans.
