The Blood Brothers
Set Fire To The Face On Fire
The Blood Brothers will precede their most diverse and musical record to date: 'Young Machetes', with the single 'Set Fire To The Face On Fire' on 15th January 2007. Released through their new label Wichita Recordings (Bloc Party, The Bronx, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Saul Williams etc), the single will be available on 7" and download. The 7" artwork was designed by Julian of The Liars and the B-side is a remix of 'Lazer Life' by Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
The Seattle based five piece converged on their local Robert Lang Studios to record this, album. Once again they teamed up with John Goodmanson, who produced their second album Crimes (as well as engineering & mixing Young Machetes) and, in addition, they enlisted Guy Picciotto (famed Fugazi member and Rites of Spring founder). Together the duo inspired a renewed energy and confidence in the band. "John and Guy helped us believe in our first instincts," says Morgan.
