Backyard Tire Fire Live at Larry's Coming Up on Saturday, March 17th
Top 25ers of 2007 Backyard Tire Fire will be bringing their whiskey-bent twangers and beer-raising ballads to Oxford, MS, this Saturday. I've been looking forward to this one for a while. Should be an amazing show. BYTF will be releasing The Places We Lived in August!

The past fourteen months have been a whirlwind for BTF, who are comprised by lead vocalist, guitarist and chief songwriter Ed Anderson, bassist Matt Anderson and drummer Tim Kramp. In February 2007, the band released Vagabonds & Hooligans, a pinnacle recording that has gone onto become their best selling album to date and which made several bloggers year-end "Best of 2007" lists. On the road, BTF performed over 200 shows in 2007, highlighted by key support slots for artists ranging from JJ Grey & Mofro, Cracker and Clutch and festival dates including Wakarusa, Mountain Jam and Twangfest.
2008 has already been a great year for the band. They've toured with Australia's Beautiful Girls, New Orleans' The Radiators, and are currently on tour with Reverend Horton Heat. Their March was highlighted by a performance at Langerado Festival in Florida (headlined by R.E.M. and Beastie Boys), as well as exclusive web-performances on influential sites like Daytrotter.com and SunStudioSessions.com. The band recently signed a record deal with NY based independent label, Hyena Records, which was founded by the late legendary Atlantic Record's producer, Joel Dorn. Their first album on Hyena is slated for an August release and will be named The Places We Lived.
