Tales of gun battles and crazies on new EP

THE boys from Fire and Whistle Theory will once again be delighting Ipswich fans when they return to Studio 188 to perform their latest songs.

The five piece band will be bringing their brand new EP to Ipswich on July 8 following the successful launch at Brisbane’s New Globe Theatre earlier this year.

Band member Mitchell Rosenthal described their gig as a “homecoming” for the band.

“We are coming back to our roots, as we all have a strong connection to Ipswich,” he said.

“After our successful EP launch in Brisbane, we are coming back home, and this will be our chance to showcase our latest songs to the local crowd.

“We will be performing all five songs from the debut EP track and we will also be debuting a number of new tracks as well.

“We always love performing at Studio 188 because it is a fantastic venue and we always get a good turnout.”

The band describe their music styling as new wave blues rock with a little bit of swing, but what makes their sound so unique is their ability to tell a story through their lyrics.

“Our songs take you on a journey,” Mr Rosenthal said.

“We have songs about old western gun fights, another song is about a heist, so a guy who makes a living out of robbing a bank, and we have another song about a crazy woman and a hitman.

“Every single one of them has their own story.”

The boys will take to the stage following the support acts, The Free Loves and Lachy Lyne, who are also from the Ipswich region.
