"Tongues of Fire, Adderall"

Tongues Of Fire are "post-punk indie warriors" from Asheville, North Carolina. They take inspiration from the likes of The Pixies, Metz, The Fall Of Troy and Japandroids and are a three piece featuring Lowell Hobbs (guitar/vocals), Tres Price (bass/vocals) and Jakeb Reel (drums).

Their debut (demo) single, Sea, came out last June and they've just followed it up with the release of a 4 track self titled ep, you can find it "name your price" here :

The song you'll find below is the lead track from the new ep, despite the band being in their infancy they're showing great promise, I'm expecting the big name indie press to sit up and take notice soon. This is Adderall..... - Just Some Punk Songs

"Empty X-Mas"

Amongst all the upbeat Christmas cheer we've been spreading this month, there's been a couple from the other side and this is one of 'em. I especially love the lyric sheet on bandcamp with its guitar descriptions : '(Shranggg... Da da dun dun). Ace. Check it out. - Sunstock

"New Year's Ninety"

"Debut single, Sea by Tongues of Fire"

Tongues of Fire is a new indie band out of Asheville, NC, and they recently released their first single, called Sea. I’m going to call their vibe fuzzy punk. If you dunked the Sex Pistols into a vat of LSD, you might have something resembling the feel of this song. - Soundwaves Review

"Sea, Single Review"

Formed earlier this year – Sea (available on bandcamp) is their first foray into a fully formed release. Though there are snippets of thoughts they have made available for those of us not locally based in North Carolina since January.

Lasting just under three minutes Tongues of Fire spear angularities of lo-fi rim sheering distortion and feedback which coils out of the speakers like a Spitting Cobra espying a Vole running across the scrub and the trio launch the venom across the room in a singular sound which bites into the soul.

I am intrigued to discover more of Lowell Hobbs (Guitar / Vocals), Chandler Bell (Bass / Vocals) and Jakeb Reel (Drums) whilst anticipating they will feature for a while to come. - Emerging Indie Bands
