“As a singular release, it’s hard not to be impressed by the size and scale of ‘Fired Up’, and while it might only bring four tracks to the threshold, each one is a confident and thought-provoking look into the heart of the band. A powerful introduction and a stellar overall release, ‘Fired Up’ is a debut release that simply demands to be heard. ”
