With the volume, technicality and intensity that embodies heavy metal and the overarching catchiness and longevity of stoner and classic rock, Barn Burner capture a signature sound that cannot be easily placed or categorized. Cultivating the principles of partying and the everlasting might of the riff, Barn Burner creates a live atmosphere that render an audience incapable of standing still. Whether it is giving your best friend a well-deserved swill of beer or lovingly smashing the bottle over his head to the sound of a ruthless riff, Barn Burner will fulfill the demands of its listeners. Having finished their second record and follow up to the critically acclaimed Bangers, Barn Burner are prepared to unleash something more fierce.
The debut single from the album, Keg Stand and Deliver, can be heard NOW on www.metalblade.com/barnburner. Pre-orders are also available, including a t-shirt/CD bundle.
The upcoming release of their second full-length record, entitled Bangers II: Scum of the Earth, saw Barn Burner teaming up with producer/engineer Adrian Popovich once again (Tricky Woo, Priestess, Sam Roberts, The Dears, and Sebastian Grainger) to create a truly original heavy metal record. While maintaining some of the core aspects of their previous record, Barn Burner have captured something more intense, taking steps to create an album more dynamic then their last. Having already toured Canada, the U.S. and Europe with the likes of Priestess, Bison B.C., and 3 inches of Blood, Barn Burner intend to continue its war path in support of the Metal Blade release of Bangers II.
Vocalist/guitarist Kevin Keegan tells us “we will be hitting the road with 3 inches of Blood and Cancer Bats in May in Canada so look forward to us bothering you for a place to stay on our way across Canada with a couple of the most killer bands this country has to offer. Let’s party!”
