Australia 'Burn it Down' tour - Oct/Nov 2016
The FIRE are heading to Australia to share with all their new track and video 'Burn it Down' this Oct/Nov with 22 MASSIVE shows Nationwide.
'Burn it Down' was co-written and produced with Stephen Rev Maxwell from Kingston, Jamaica, and is a global effort on behalf of the band, being recorded and mixed in studios in Jamaica, Australia, and New Zealand, giving 'Burn It Down' a divine and authentic reggae and ska sound. The Brothers of the Fire have much love and gratitude to all those in attendance from the HUGE USA world tour, with epic crowd attendance (including selling out Mandalay Bay and joining forces with GoPro Games), and are already taking off again on the Burn it Down Tour New Zealand in honour of their vibrant new song before heading over the ditch to Australia.
The recent media attention (or lack of) has put Katchafire in the spotlight after lead singer "Logan Bell" spoke up about their successes in the US over the years and the distant reflection that has had from mainstream headlines in the South Pacific. The group's first foray into the United States music scene was a 2006 NFL halftime performance in Hawaii in front of 50,000 people. The massively positive response ushered in a regular US touring schedule, with Katchafire making sure to include Australia each year since.
Katchafire's epic touring schedule has coincided with a noticeably growing acceptance of Reggae from mainstream audiences, leading to increasingly enthusiastic responses to the group's riotous live performances worldwide.
Joining Katchafire on their Burn it Down Australia tour is L.A.B. - an incarnation of the popular KORA brothers Brad and Stu, plus talented jazz guitarist Joel Shadbolt and Sunshine Sound System's Kyle Popham (KP). In what is sure to be a gift to fans, Katchafire will also be joined in Sydney by special guest Tiki Taane, marking the first time the two legendary NZ acts have shared a stage. With the band ready to share fresh new music and fresh new vibes to Aussie crowds, get ready to experience the high-energy genre blast that is Katchafire.
