Girl On Fire: Release 'NOT BROKEN' - Debut Album Out Now! Band On Tour With BUCKCHERRY, HALESTORM Dates To Follow; AFTERSHOCK Performance Set "THE TAKEDOWN" Climbing Charts At Radio And OCTANE
Seattle rockers GIRL ON FIRE released their debut album 'NOT BROKEN' yesterday, and fans and critics alike are already praising the album as one of the year's finest debuts.
"Taking Story Of The Year's anthemic punch, Trust Company's vocal melodies, later Eighteen Visions' swagger, and a bunch of early Linkin Park sneer, this is big shiny rock purposely built for the radio... they are damn effective at what they do." --Outburn
"This album is everything you could want in a rock album and more... The album's debut single 'The Takedown' could stand high atop the pedestal with the likes of many of the active rock hits from the past decade." --New Transcendence (10/10)
"'The Takedown' comes at you with everything it's got. These guys can rock, and they're not shy about letting you know it." --Amps And Green Screens (8.5/10)
The first single from 'NOT BROKEN' is "The Takedown" and is currently rising the charts at SiriusXM OCTANE and terrestrial radio, to watch the music video click here. GIRL ON FIRE also recently released behind-the-scenes video reports offering a look at the album's recording process - click to watch the reports on drums, guitar and bass.

Currently on the road with BUCKCHERRY, GIRL ON FIRE will wrap their summer tour with a performance at MONSTER ENERGY AFTERSHOCK in Sacramento, CA, September 14, where they will join CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS labelmates BUCKCHERRY, IN THIS MOMENT, OTHERWISE and the BUTCHER BABIES on a two-day festival lineup that also includes KORN, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, SHINEDOWN, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, VOLBEAT and a host of others. The band will then return home for two dates with HALESTORM September 20-22, with a new fall tour to be announced shortly.
Produced and mixed by Jay Baumgardner [PAPA ROACH, EVANESCENCE, SEVENDUST] and mastered by Howie Weinberg [NIRVANA, AEROSMITH, THE WHITE STRIPES], 'NOT BROKEN' is a combustible combination of crisp riffs and body-shaking rhythms, a guitar-driven thrill ride primed to take radio by storm and leave the world rocking in its wake.
Released September 3 on Century Media Records, the debut album is available now in exclusive bundles via CMDistro.com.
