Pop punk band Firestarter are thrilled to announce that they will be hitting the road next month for a full US tour with Capstan. The month-long run kicks off in Firestarter’s hometown of Albany, NY on August 6th, and wraps up in Buffalo, NY on September 5th.

On the upcoming tour, the band shares: “Incredibly stoked to be seeing the west coast and honestly a majority of the country once again with our close Florida friends in Capstan. Both of us have new music to play on the tour and we couldn’t be more excited to do so!“
“Have you ever just packed everything you own, and left somewhere you’ve known for so long and traded it in for the unknown” singer/guitarist Matt LaPerche croons on “49 Stow” – these are the words Firestarter was built on when LaPerche moved to Albany for a fresh start. The group, also consisting of Mike Held (guitar), Daniel Sheehan (bass), and Matt Bliss (drums), came together in the fall of 2012. They hit the ground running and haven’t stopped since. In just over two years, Firestarter has released three EP’s – 2013’s New Beginnings, 2014’s Forget The Past, and 2015’s A Life Inconsistent – a split 7″ with Orlando’s Old Again, and toured the United States extensively in support of all of them. On top of that, Firestarter has shared the stage with the likes of Less Than Jake, Bayside, Senses Fail, Set It Off, State Champs, Transit, Hit The Lights, Handguns, and many others.
Firestarter has no plan of stopping now. After recently releasing a new digital EP, entitled A Life Inconsistent, recorded by Jay Maas(Counterparts, Defeater, State Champs), Firestarter looks to expand on their already growing fan base and continue their heavy touring regiment. Keep on eye out for a full length on the horizon and even more touring from the Albany quartet in the near future.
