Floating on a wave of brilliant songs for the romantics, The Rumour Said fire have completed their evolution from being a tranquil folk project to becoming a dreamy rockband.
Always in possession of a romantic sensibility stream through their synth-loaded alternative pop, The Rumour Said Fire introduces dreamy 80’s references to the band’s beloved folkrock-background. The band has just finished recordings for a new record and thus ready to play live in Copenhagen for the first time in three years at Frost Festival beneath the star-studded firmament of Koncertkirken.
“Brilliant songwriting” was how Soundvenue’s raving six stars review described The Rumour Said Fire’s latest effort Dead Ends (2012). With singer and songwriter Jesper Lidang at the front, Dead Ends marked the band’s perfect transition from the beloved alternative folk of their debut effort Life and Dead of a Male Body to a full blown rockband, being a “big, beautiful and enthralling experience to listen to”, as Berlingske put it when awarding Dead Ends as one of the best records of the year.
Through the past two years the band has written, recorded and produced tracks for a new album. During the summer 2016 The Rumour Said Fire played one single concert at the festival Musik I Lejet showcasing some of their new songs to a thrilled audience. The concert at Frost Festival will be the first chance to experience the new songs in Copenhagen.
