Description of About A Burning Fire by Blindside
With the release of Silence, their 3 Points/Elektra debut album, Blindside made a loud entry into the heavy rock world, scanning over 150,000 copies on word-of-mouth, on the strength of their devastating concert performances and solid radio play. Blindside connected with fans and fellow musicians in a way that is all-too-rare in an era of short-lived, singles-driven artists, with an intensity and authenticity that is hard to quantify, yet easy to see.
They have a large, very active online community that has continued to grow in between albums; they were signed by POD to that band's new label, 3 Points; they were invited to join many of the biggest tours of 2002, including Linkin Park, Hoobastank, Papa Roach, Trust Company and Project 86. Blindside's new album, About A Burning Fire, brings back the power and passion that made them one of the most talked-about bands of last year.
