Album Out March 25th via Triple Crown Records

Join The Wonder Years, Citizen, Real Friends and Modern Baseball On Upcoming Spring Tour


FEBRUARY 13, 2014 -Detroit, MI natives, Fireworks have released the first song from their highly anticipated upcoming album "Oh, Common Life" out March 25th via Triple Crown Records. "Glowing Crosses" can be streamed now with Pitchfork here:

"Growing up my parents would tell me about the Detroit riots in the summer of 1967." Explains guitarist and vocalist Chris Mojan, "There was a citywide curfew and tanks on most corners of these new suburbs of the city. They were only teenagers at the time yet can still perfectly describe the desolation and eerie silence those riots brought. The only light coming from the glowing cross hanging on the side of the hospital, lighting up the front lawns of all the houses in the neighborhood. Although it didn't really mean anything, knowing that people thought it did was kind of powerful on it's own."

"Oh, Common Life" Track Listing:
1. Glowing Crosses
2. Bed Sores
3.The Back Window's Down
4. Flies on Tape
5. Woods
6. Play God Only Knows At My Funeral
7. One More Creature Dizzy With Love
8. The Only Thing That Haunts This House is Me
9.The Sound of Young America
10. Run, Brother, Run
11. The Hotbed of Life

"Oh, Common Life" is a rock record that does whatever it wants to do - but from the familiar aggressiveness of the opening "Glowing Crosses" to the ranging pop vocals of "Flies on Tape" to the spine-shivering intensity of the guitars on "One More Creature Dizzy With Love," nothing ever feels out of place. It's proof that Fireworks has reached a point where it can do what it likes - and do it well.

Fireworks will join Philadelphia's The Wonder Years on their upcoming spring headliner with Citizen, Real Friends and Modern Baseball! The tour kicks off March 5th in Clifton Park, NY at The Upstate Concert Hall. Due to popular demand, a second Chicago show has been added for March 10th at The House Of Blues.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here:

Composed of vocalist David Mackinder, lead guitarist Brett Jones, guitarist Chris Mojan, bassist Kyle O'Neil and keyboardist Adam Mercer, Fireworks is a band filled with electric personalities and endless influences, who have shared the stage with acts such as New Found Glory, Saves The Day, The Starting Line, All Time Low and many more.
