Seventh Rule Recs signs Light Yourself On Fire
Official press release: Seventh Rule Recordings proudly welcomes Light Yourself On Fire to its expanding roster. Representing Tampa, Florida, Light Yourself On Fire consists of four veterans of Tampa's metal and hardcore scenes, hailing from such bands as Reversal Of Man, Scrog, and Brutality. Light Yourself On Fire describes the origin of its visceral, aggressive sound as "hardcore kids growing up in the death metal capital and being influenced by early 90's noise," naming Obituary, Swans, and Christian Death as influences. Seventh Rule Recordings, a Chicago-based label with albums by Akimbo, Sweet Cobra, Buried At Sea, and Indian under its belt, will release Light Yourself On Fire's new effort, "Intimacy," in fall 2008. "Intimacy" was recorded by Mark Nikolich (Torche) at Atomic Audio Recording in Tampa, Florida, and mastered by Scott Hull (of Pig Destroyer) at Visceral Sound. Light Yourself On Fire's debut full-length was released in 2007, on CD by Kiss Of Death Records and on cassette by Robotic Empire. The band will be touring throughout 2008.
