Washington DC’s TIME IS FIRE barrels into the future on their new album In Pieces, a blistering mix of rhythm, noise, and protest. The band’s debut full-length release captures the quintet's signature sound, which has been described as “Sufi punk,” “weird world,” and “dance punk,” but defies simplistic labels. Produced and recorded by BRENDAN CANTY (Rites of Spring, Fugazi, Messthetics), the album’s nine tracks build on Time Is Fire’s incendiary live shows, which have garnered praise from critics at NPR, the Washington Post and Washington City Paper. Beneath the record’s polyrhythmic beats and psychedelia is a potent message of resistance against authoritarian forces on the rise across the globe, from Tehran to DC. “Our mission as a band is to snap people out of their fear,” says KAMYAR ARSANI, the band’s Iranian born vocalist and lyricist. “The dance element is there to get people out of their seats and moving. And then the lyrics point toward new ways of thinking, feeling and changing our world.” Limited-edition 12" black vinyl in full-color jacket with shrink wrap and promo sticker, includes lyric sheet insert and download card.
