BACKYARD TIRE FIRE return with their new studio album, The Places We Lived, on Hyena Records. Distinguished by a rare combination of workingman authenticity and indie-rock eccentricity, The Places We Lived is defiantly contemporary, while remaining true to its Midwestern roots. Spiked with the truth-telling salt of HANK WILIAMS, the beautiful melancholy of vintage TOM WAITS and the pop smarts of a Midwest BIG STAR, this latest effort by the Bloomington, Illinois-based band embodies all the simple things that make rock 'n' roll endure. The last 16 months have seen BACKYARD TIRE FIRE's national buzz grow by leaps and bounds. They've played national festivals like Summerfest, Langerado, Wakarusa and Mountain Jam and have toured the country with CRACKER, JASON ISBELL, CLUTCH, and REVEREND HORTON HEAT. Simultaneously, tastemaker blogs like My Old Kentucky Blog, Daytrotter, and Large Hearted Boy have weighed in with unanimous raves.
