PROMOTIONAL MP3: BISON EYES - QUEST FOR FIRE

You would think that playing in bands for a decade, and touring constantly in shitty vans, might instill the desire to make your new project a lucrative one. This however, hasn’t crossed the minds of the four members of Toronto’s Quest For Fire. The sonic assault that these guys unleash onto unsuspecting listeners in a live setting, through their sometimes 10+ minute journeys is pure power. A contemporary take on classic rock and psychedelia.

The band, made up of Andrew Moszynski (guitar), Chad Ross (guitar, vocals), Mike Maxymuik (drums), and Josh Bauman (bass), spent a little over a year holed up in a tiny practice space near Toronto's lakeshore, refining their vision and obsessing over their common love of all things strange.

Upon the inevitable demise of Canada's most beloved garage rock underdogs, The Deadly Snakes (In the Red Records), of which Andrew and Chad were core members, Quest For Fire began to prepare for their great unveiling before Toronto's wary rock scene. On a hot August night in 2007, the band made their first appearance at ‘The Boat', one of Toronto's most cherished dive bars located in Kensington Market. They quickly became the city's most sought-after new band. Show offers came flooding in to open for acts such as Black Mountain, Ladyhawk, Mudhoney, Earthless, Howlin Rain, Witch……..... As their old bands burned out, QFF took off. The Deadly Snakes faded with time and Mike’s tenure with Canadian metal/hardcore heads Cursed came to an abrupt end. One year after the release of their debut album on Montreal's Storyboard label, QFF is stoked to announce that they have been picked up by New York's Tee Pee Records. Their self titled debut will now be available in the U.S./Europe in June of 2009.
