Dubbed the 'Peoples' band' of Taiwan, FIRE EX., one of the most critically acclaimed Rock bands in Taiwan are bringing their tasteful, heartwarming brand of Rock to the American market in a 4-stop U.S. Tour.
Making stops at San Francisco on the 19th of July, Los Angeles (21st July), Boston (23rd July) and ending with a final stop in New York City to perform at the Taiwanese Waves Showcase, the band who are fiercely proud of their Taiwanese heritage will show you a side to Taiwan's music you've never expected.
Taking home the 'Best Single' award at the 26th Golden Melody Awards in Taiwan (the equivalent of the Chinese Grammys) for their single 'Island's Sunrise', many of the Kaohsiung-bred band's songs touch on topics relevant to the political and cultural landscape of Taiwan.
The single in question brought them international coverage as they wrote in in support of students protesting at the 2014 Sunflower Movement in Taipei, and quickly became the anthem of that year's protesting efforts.
Performing mainly in Taiwanese dialect, the band's sound is hearty, moving and inspiring, adhering closely to Rock tradition, but with a meaningful, uniquely Taiwanese twist inserted through their melodies and lyrics.
Don't miss out on their U.S. performances this July!
