Fire­flys burn through decade’s songs

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Theguide -

RUN­CORN band The Fire­flys re­turn to The Brind­ley theatre this month to play a spe­cial one-off show chron­i­cling the last 10 years of the band’s mu­sic.

Formed in 2007 by front­man Lee Wyld­ing, the cult in­die band have gone from strength to strength over the last decade, from re­leas­ing five al­bums of orig­i­nal mu­sic, play­ing are­nas, to sign­ing a deal with Straw­berry Moon records.

The band – now a six piece, have gigged and recorded re­lent­lessly over the past 10 years and feel like the next chap­ter is just be­gin­ning.

Songwriter Lee who is from We­ston Point said: “We’ve seen many lo­cal bands fall by the way­side over the last 10 years, but we’re still go­ing strong, and will con­tinue to do so.

“When your mu­sic is broad­cast all over the world, on ra­dio and TV and plays out from foot­ball sta­di­ums, it’s in­cred­i­ble and also very en­cour­ag­ing, and I see no rea­son why the next 10 years can’t be as suc­cess­ful as the first. We’ve gained quite a cult fol­low­ing and for that we are very for­tu­nate.”

The band play The Brind­ley on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 27, and tick­ets are avail­able from the box of­fice now.
