about

News of the Fire Los Angeles, California

We have sweat. Jars full of sweat after every show we play. Dont believe us? Give us a crowd of 10, or a sea of 500+ people and you’ll see that the videos and reviews don’t lie; we pour our souls into each performance. These vast efforts are repaid by the audience with growing fanatical support, both online and at our shows. We move the masses with sweat wherever we play. ... more

Track Name: Faces
Darkness our faces hit
like two lonely submarines
static was blinding as the water kissed our feet

Weak hands weak knees
Woke them up again
Mathematical equations were lines and dividends

Various Oh's

Savage seaweed bound our feet and tied us to the ground
Asphyxiation shook its head and left without a sound

Various Oh's

Don't shoot me down, I'm dead I swear.
I can't see too clear.

Don't shoot me down, I'm dead I swear.
I can't see too clear.
Track Name: His Organs, His Organs
Amateur wants you back
We the pros have a laugh
A smile now, cracks to a frown
Strings so taught, we cut them down

Sensation, sensation it comes and goes
His organs, his organs, they pump and flow
Sensation, sensation it comes and goes
Words muddled and dirty, he bent so low

Run and hide, that's our advice
She's too young, yeah I know, you lived her life
Pantomime across the stage
Turn your head and laugh in rage

Sensation, sensation it comes and goes
His organs, his organs, they pump and flow
Sensation, sensation it comes and goes
Words muddled and dirty, he bent so low
Track Name: 1996
Conversation was in decline
Riddled by howls and finger sings
We're creatures with feelings
We cry and we bleed, alright?
The talk was a long one
You push your rings out of sight

Confrontation is well deserved
They dropped vowels in an ancient church
We're creatures with feelings
We cry and we bleed, alright?
The talk was a long one
You push your rings out of sight

I shook the night and let it fall
I let it fall, I shook the night
Track Name: State of the Art
He was spiteful and a bit of a mess
Preplanned karaoke and wine fell over his breath
One is not a number while you're counting by two's and three's
So get up and get out and work on your division please

State of the art steel that will break your bones
and mold back
Center of earth heat and catacombs will warm you

She was helpless and in distress
Nondescript motions and hints hid in her dress
Poems about chivalry and things men love to forget
Forgot the rhyme scheme and hit the best meter yet

State of the art steel that will break your bones
and mold back
Center of earth heat and catacombs will warm you
Track Name: Hollow
Tin can, tin can, ouch
You over did yourself
You're a piece of flac
With a smile, on your side

Sing out, sing out loud
The frequencies emanate
From your gut
In a chorus so hollow

Oh my god, this is real, I...
He fell down, now it's time to go

Stay back, stay back, now
Aluminum in your mouth
And your teeth
Congregate like a mob

Sing out, sing out loud
The frequencies emanate
From your gut
In a chorus so hollow

Oh my god, this is real, I...
He fell down, now it's time to go

Tin can, tin can, ouch
You over did yourself
You're a piece of flac
With a smile, on your side

Sing out, sing out loud
The frequencies emanate
From your gut
In a chorus so hollow

Oh my god, this is real, I...
He fell down, now it's time to go
