US psych-rockers FireBug will grace UK shores again this month for some rare club dates followed by an appearance at the, fast-becoming-legendary, Sonisphere Festival. With influences from Zeppelin to Pink Floyd, the four-piece, fronted by the captivating Juliette Tworsey, always get a great reception on our side of the pond, and this visit looks set to be no exception.
In preparation, the band have been holed up in the studio with Queens of The Stone Age producer Chris Goss, laying down tracks for their forthcoming, as yet unnamed, record. Goss brought the band further out of their shell during the sessions, having them experiment and execute some great new music. FireBug will be back in the studio this summer to complete the record.
Lead guitarist Jules Shapiro said;
“We always love performing in the UK! Our first tour back in 2007 went way beyond expectations. To be asked to perform at the legendary Sonisphere Festival has really got us spinning around. Playing alongside legendary rock bands like The Cult, Iron Maiden and Iggy Pop, is really a dream come true! And to do all that in the UK, a country so influential in making rock music what it is today, is great.”
Full details of the UK dates are as follows:
- 28th July – Dublin Castle, London
- 29th July – Riff’s Bar, Swindon
- 30th July – The Wilmington Arms, London
- 1st Aug – Sonisphere Festival, Knebworth
