A FRIEND CALLED FIRE.. is a high-octane rock trio hailing from The Windy City. With a foundation based upon an infectious rhythmic assault, the band's music is a pairing of heavy grooves based in rock and metal influence fused with hooks and melodies both genuine and purposeful.
The trio, consisting of Jon Allegretto (lead vocals, guitar), Powers (bass, backing vocals) and Johnathan Schiller (drums, backing vocals) are quickly making headway in their native Chicago in addition to many regional markets through touring and relentless marketing and promotion. Lyrically Allegretto's words seek to entice listeners to view their own lives and strive for improvements in the world around them. A Friend Called Fire's music is the catalyst for songs concerning love and hate, grief and ecstasy, the current state and future of the world we live in and beyond. The band's explosive live shows prove that much like their name implies, A Friend Called Fire in many ways creates and destroys with passion and power.
Think Muse hanging out with Strata and Social D., while on the phone with Sevendust, Breaking Benjamin and Clutch who just left a party at System of a Down's house that was just crashed by Mute Math in a rebellious frenzy. Or something.
