In preparation for the upcoming Ithaca Underground/CSMA stage at Ithaca Festival on June 4th, we're bringing you the skinny on a few of the bands. First up - Bridge Under Fire!
Band Name: Bridge Under Fire
Location: Syracuse, NY
Formed: Bridge Under Fire was formed by myself (Mark) and Matt from The Andrea Doria and Brendan from Vapor Aevum. We got together in the fall of 2010 after our previous bands broke up. We began writing songs and auditioning drummers. Through the magic of craigslist we got in touch with Clayton from the band Purple Grip, and he joined the band in November 2010.
Mark Turley- Vocals/guitar
Brndan Hilyard- Guitar/Backup Vocals
Matt Proietta- Bass
Clayton Stetz- Drums
Releases: The Night Court Sessions (self-released Feb. 2010)
Tell us about yourselves!
Once we got Clayton, and all the members were in place, we hit the ground running. We played our first show in December 2010, recorded our first EP The Night Court Sessions at The Hollow Recording Studio in Syracuse with Jim Goldsworthy (Fierce Little Records) and Josh Coy (Long Since Forgotten, Red and Black, Stay Six) in January, released it and had our first tour in February 2011. Since being released, we have toured through NY, PA, CT, and NJ and played with thrash/hardcore bands to pop-punk bands.
The easiest way to describe Bridge Under Fire’s sound is that it is most similar to Hot Water Music. The melodies are catchy, the vocals are aggressive, but the lyrics are very sing along-able. Currently we are planning some shows, as well as writing new tunes for a possible full length for the end of the year or early next year. Bridge Under Fire is still a very young band and things are moving at a very fast pace. Currently the next stop on our traveling circus is Ithaca Festival and we are insanely excited to play.
