“That was cool. Loud and fun.”
SET ME FREE - ALBUM LAUNCH
Smoking Figs first studio album is ready to go and will be launched at Rubix Warehouse on Saturday 11 August 2018 where an extended band has been assembled to replicate the full soundscape recording. The album contains 9 original tracks written by the band that can be best described as eclectic rock. From the country rock styled Blue Suit Man's tale of the working businessman to the pounding beat of the mysterious Night Stalker the album has a diverse soundscape. The title track Set Me Free is a reflection of the baby boomers desire of escapism and pays homage to the band growing up as children of the sixties - hence the breaking out of the TV world imagery. The album is available on all digital platforms and as limited collectors edition 12" vinyl complete with liner notes. Release date 10 August 2018.
The Smoking Figs first formed in 2013 on the back of members re-igniting their musical past playing material that has been founded on a variety of influences over the decades including the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Beastie Boys, David Bowie, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Green Day, Jack White to name a few. The band focuses on writing original material that makes an immediate connection with the listener forging a unique interpretation of Rock come Punk. Following its debut EP titled Something Happens and upcoming release of its album Set Me Free, the band delivers a big sound with energetic rawness and instant accessibility. The Smoking Figs shows include an eclectic repertoire with punch that get the feet tapping for a good time.
