about

Boston’s Fire in the Field drops their new EP produced by Grammy Award Winning Audio Engineer Jay Frigoletto.

These four new tracks are of the highest quality and production showcasing the genre bending rock group’s appetite for mixing it up but giving the fans what they want. Rock n’ Roll is a journey to be discovered while listening not blindly consumed; and no one knows this better than Fire in the Field.

“Honey Cup” – a soulful foot stomper written as a thank you to the Gospel greats – Aretha, Mavis, Mahalia Jackson, and a tip of the hat to the Mississippi John Hurt. This song is somewhere between the Black Crowes and the Rolling Stones but is all Mike Moore, the songwriter, vocalist, and lead guitar slinger of Fire in the Field.

“These Hills” – is a fresh and dark prog-rock voyage. A psychedelic escape scene from the first person perspective of a pilot and co-pilot escaping the clutches of authoritarian oppression. The title of the EP comes from the pre-chorus of “These Hills.” Listen for Jay Frigolettos’ mind blowing keyboard solo at the end along with Raquel’s sensual and heavy Sabaath-like melody throughout the choruses. The main riff bobs and weaves like a Dr. Dre B-side.

“Most Evil” – the third release from FITF dawns yet another instrumental piece and this one is as true to its name as they come. It may be the slowest song on the EP but arguably pumps the most blood through the system while clouded in dark mystery. Listen for the ear-candied vocoder at the end along with the live one-take guitar solo.

“Eyes” – Mike wrote this song as a warning to himself - to avoid negative states of mind the physical and visual world can influence you to feel. The tune is a straight up rocker pumping through to the end, pausing only to funk out for a moment to trade guitar and keyboard licks before the final build to madness.

Track Name: Honey Cup
the first time i saw ya
the first time i knew
cards on the table
i wanna come on through
well i know you’re shy
oh baby, I’m shy too
and each note you’re singin’
i wanna-

like a queen of gospel
you tear my guts
shoutin’ with the power
Ooo touch and bust
you must be young
but how young really
your trunk your ride
the high note healin’

oh honey cup - the rhythm if your strut
oh honey cup - Oh girl, what you got cookin’ up
oh honey cup - you’re makin’ me rush
honey oh my honey cup

I’m feelin’ exaltation
inside and out
Nashville got nothin’
on your Memphis shout
Mavis in the mornin’
Mr. Green at night
John Hurt on Sunday
your blues get it right

that midnight ramble
you were the star
shoutin’ down home gospel girl
through the back of the bar
I don’t need no jukebox
no twenty-five cent
cause you are my honey cup
and that’s the way it went
Track Name: These Hills
by land by sea
only trouble comin’ one-two-three
wind shift through the sail
wind shift through the sail
ridin’ high in the valley’s drift
what vehicle is this
what mile is this

these hills never looked so strange

while this height is in my hand
we will find another place to land

there’s a page in the council’s hand sayin’
“kill ‘em dead - don’t let ‘em live”
we need some more speed
to get over on them
bullets flyin’ breakin’ glass
who’s blood is this, who’s blood is this

these hills never looked so strange

while this height is in my hand
we will find another place to land
Track Name: Eyes
welcome to the bottom
where you find yourself
well in time you’ll travel
yeah you might find hell
maybe you should pray for
another set of eyes
maybe then you’ll barter
with the lords the flies

gotta find the edge of my eyesight
visionary
get down with what you see
then you must
you must believe

dropping tricks of venom
they will spit at you
well in time you’ll go on
heaven will be hell
well we’ve got to move now
until those cows they fly
we don’t need no sunlight
with these doors these dives
