The Wildfires Projekt has covered a duo of emo classics on new EP ‘Garden Statement Pt. 1’.
The solo project of California based singer-songwriter Johnny Zirkel has delivered rousing renditions of My Chemical Romance’s “To The End” and Hidden In Plain View’s “Bleed For You”, with the help of The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus’ Josh Burke.
“In life we are often displaced from where we grew up. Whether it’s because of business, family, or some other reason, we often find ourselves living somewhere foreign to what we know best. While I currently live in California, I was born and raised in New Jersey and often find myself longing to go back. The motivation behind “Garden Statement” was to create an anthology series of songs that pay tribute to the great artists of New Jersey, both well-known and lesser known, that have helped shape my music, and the music industry as a whole. Since The Wildfires Projekt is deeply rooted in the alternative and emo genres that stem from NJ, it made sense to cover My Chemical Romance and Hidden in Plain View on this first release.” – Johnny Zirkel.
