Ascending UK post-grungers, Coastal Fire Dept. kick on further with their stunning new single, Stranger Town, out now, via L'Islet Records. Along with the release of the new single, the band have also announced details of their sophomore album, 'Outsiders', set for release on Friday, the 14th April, this year.
Hailing from Guernsey, and formed in 2013, Coastal Fire Dept. are comprised of guitarist and vocalist Ollie Goddard, bassist Saad Frihmat, guitarist Jon Langlois, and Ozzy Austin on drums.
With a notably and expanding growing back catalogue of releases featuring 2019’s debut mini-album, Control, 2020’s highly praised, 'Radio' EP, last year’s first fully fledged album, 'Connected', and their standalone single, 'You’re Stuck', where the band collaborated with Ken Andrews (Failure, Stone Temple Pilots, Chris Cornell), Coastal Fire Dept. have a distinct quality to produce a constant stream of releases at a remarkably productive rate.
Always looking to progress, the latter half of 2021 prompted a move towards a powerful guitar-driven vibe. It also saw the band record with Kellii Scott (Failure, QOTSA, Veruca Salt, and more) on drums. Their singles, ‘Gun’, ‘Loner’ and ‘What Do I’ were released to widespread acclaim, securing widespread worldwide radio play and press coverage, which included solid support from Kerrang! Radio.
The band charge again with brand new single, 'Stranger Town', which calls to mind the likes of Mudhoney, Nirvana, and the Pixies. The crew have further singles to follow this year, coinciding with the band’s anticipated sophomore full-length album, out this Spring. Stay glued to their socials for frequent updates.
Speaking of the new single, the band explained, "'Stranger Town' is a slab of grungy college rock dealing with being an outsider in a strange place. Ollie retells the story of one summer he went into a pub on the moors outside of Manchester and what happened next was like a scene from a weird horror movie."
