Biography

Newark, Delaware, United States (1994 – 2006, 2010 – present)

Post-Hardcore band from Newark, Delaware, United States

The hardcore, then later post-hardcore, band boysetsfire was founded 1994 in Delaware/USA. One of the main reasons was ‘To shake things and change’, which basically meant to mosh like lunatics through the rehearsal room. But soon the wish for a change manifests in more and more politically inspired lyrics. Only about a month after their first rehearsal, they played their first gig for friends. This opened the doors for some local club gigs in Newark, and the first demo was recorded shortly after.

The band is not in for half done things, so a second demo is released, and a two week long tour booked. Before the first EP “This Crying this Screaming, my voice is born” which came out on Mike Warden’s Conquer The World Records as a split album with a band called Jazz Man’s Needle in 1996, the name boysetsfire is already quite known in the Hardcore-Scene along the east coast of the United States. 1997 they signed a contract with Initial Records, and record their first full length album “The day the sun went out”. Underground Magazines celebrate the newcomer band and especially the vocalist Nathan Gray.

In 1999, their initial bassist, Darryl Hyde left the band and is replaced with Rob Avery, who also does all the artwork for the new albums. Also, the second full length album “After the Eulogy” is recorded and released in 2000, and boysetsfire go on Tour with Snapcase and also do the Vans Warped tour.
