The Worldonfire

These English boys have a great thing going on here. One thing that will impress is the catchy melodies, the well played guitar riffs and the amazing range that Dave has in his singing voice. They’re hardworking and they sure as hell know where they wanna get to- enjoy the interview:

How did you come up with the name?
The song is called ‘The World on fire’ and its from the album American Prayer by Jim morrison. (the 1995 re-release, it wasn’t on the original i don’t think)
We had a lock in in our studio and we wasn’t allowed to leave til we had a band name. in the end we just stole this title cos it sounds quite cool and its a bit of a hommage to Jim Morrison who might not obviously influence our sound but does personify Rock n Roll.
which is nice.

Tell me a little about yourselves?
Dave Walsh – Vocals
Joe Lazarus – Drums
Bill Ginn – Guitar
Haaris Ali – Guitar
Dell Car-Rickwood – Bass.
Well we are all from the same town, called Harlow.
Everyone in the band except Joe the drummer have known eachother pretty much from school, and are all 24 years old.
The band formed in 2000 but Joe was recruited later on in 2003, he is 20.

What did you guys do before the group started?
All of the band, except Joe have been in various bands before The Worldonfire, trying to get a line up that stuck, and eventually it all came together, then Joe joined and was the last piece of the puzzle as such.

How did you start out/ was it hard?
It was hard to get gigs and get a steady following but as time went on we started to gain more and more fans and impress more audiences and we started venturing around the UK. We release our Debut album on our own label (Live To Tell The Tale) in 2007 and after that we got more interest up and down the UK, playing bigger venues every time round.

Any big plans for the near future?Well we are half way through recording our 2nd Album, we are due to finish it in the summer and we are going to be looking to get that released on a bigger, more established record label, enabling us to play bigger venues and play with more established bands.
We have supported bands with the likes of : Biffy Clyro, Oceansize, Million Dead, The Subways.

–Random questions–
What song have you been listening to most in the past few weeks?
The Frame by Oceansize, that whole album (Frames) is out of this world!

What one materialistic thing can you not live without?
Our Van 🙂 its a beauty

Does being in a band help in picking up girls/boys?
We wouldn’t really know as we all have girlfriends 🙂 you would have to ask Haaris as he is the only single one.

Have fun listening to some great musicalities.
