Anything On Fire Completes Songs For Split CD

Anything On Fire featuring the vocals of Adam Cody (vocalist of Century Media’s Glass Casket) has completed two songs with producer/engineer Jamie King (Through the Eyes of the Dead). Both songs will be released on an split EP with post-hardcore NC group Dead Eyes, out January 11th on Forsaken Recordings (Bleeding Through, Demon Hunter). Both songs include guest performances by Between the Buried and Me guitarist, Dustie Waring.

Anything On Fire is a band ten years in the making. Comprised of vocalist Adam Cody, bass player and backing vocalist Justin Reich, drummer Tripp Joye and guitarists Ben Lowe and John Vanderford, the band has been a concept only discussed but never formulated until a year ago. During high school Ben, Tripp and John were members of an industrial band called Trauma Victim. With the advent of college, Trauma Victim ended before its sound could mature. With Justin, Ben, and Tripp recently disbanding from the rock outfit Red Orchestra Radio and Adam on hold with Glass Casket while its core members played with Between the Buried and Me, their collective desire to play something different from what is out there has finally been put into action. Inspired by industrial bands like Skinny Puppy and KMDFM, with heavy influence from post hardcore legends like Botch, their new material is taking shape.

The band has a significant amount of material written, and plans on going back into the studio late 2008, along with a few tours in the works. You can check out one of their songs on the band's MySpace page.
