Announce the release of their debut album…
ʻMachines on Fireʼ
Out August 15th
This summer Yellowire are excited to announce the release of their debut album ʻMachines on Fireʼ. The news comes after the recent release of the second single from the album, ʻStarlifeʼ and incredible success of the first single ʻOne Last Breathʼ which was play listed on BBC Radio 2 in the UK and had international support with Radio play across Europe, to as far afield as Dubai. The single ʻMachines On Fireʼ will be released the same day.
Named after the third track on the record, ʻMachines on Fireʼ is an album that prides itself on appealing on a range of different levels. Track five, ‘Better Man’, for example, is an epic lighters-aloft affair with an air of spirituality to it. In comparison the fresh, happy-go-lucky pop rock tones of ʻWhere is Summerʼ and ʻStarlifeʼ.
The news comes after the incredible success of live dates including the Isle of Wight Festival, Rock am Ring & Rock im Park Germany and the most recently an extremely well received performance at Hard Rock Calling Festival. Continuing with their summer festival circuit Yellowire can be seen next at the hotly anticipated Latitude Festival. More exciting live dates are to be announced immanently.
The last few months have been busy both at home and abroad for Yellowire. The band performed live on VRT (Belgian National TV) for the Villa Vanthilt show, the performance can be seen here. Whilst in Belgium the band werealso invited to play the exclusive Eccentric Luxury Fair, Knokke, the only band to be given the honor.
Ol Beach, who is to all intents and purposes Yellowire, was brought up in an incredibly musical family. His father, Jim Beach, has been the manager of legendary rock band Queen since 1978. Olʼs musical pedigree is second to none, he was educated at the Montreux Jazz Conservatoire.
Olʼs previous band Wire Daises had number one tracks on iTunes in the UK and France, toured the world with the likes of Robbie Williams and Starsailor and released two albums through EMI.
