2017 was a big year for Through Fire. The band released their deluxe edition of ‘Breathe’ which included some new acoustic tracks and an amazing cover of “Jar Of Hearts” by Christina Perri. Their original song “Where You Lie” really hit home with fans both musically and emotionally. ‘Breathe’ dropped last year and charted very well in the US for a debut rock artist’s release. Their song “Stronger” played a large part in this. It stayed atop Sirius XM Octane’s “Big Uns” list for many weeks. 2017’s Louder Than Life was the band’s second Danny Wimmer Presents festival. They opened up the inaugural Chicago Open Air festival last year right as their record was released in 2016.
At Louder Than Life in Louisville, Kentucky we had the chance to speak with vocalist Grant Kendrick prior to the bands performance. We talked about the bands recent addition of acoustic songs, covering “Jar Of Hearts”. He also talks specifically about a group of fans at Edgefest in Wisconsin that were singing along to one of the non-singles on the bands album “Blood On My Hands” saying “They Couldn’t Wait To Sing It And Catch Eyes With Me”.
