Southern California’s Nations Afire has crafted an intense blend of punk, rock and hardcore that is brilliantly captured on their debut release, “The Uprising”. The five song debut has elements from all of the members’ former accolades but expands beyond the bounds of any one genre. Guitarist Chris Chasse has an impressive resume that includes a tenure with Rise Against (“Siren Song of the Counter Culture” in 2004 and “The Sufferer & the Witness” in 2006). Bassist Brett Rasmussen and guitarist Nik Hill are both long standing members of the Orange County hardcore outfit Ignite, and drummer Todd Hennig was the percussive force behind Death By Stereo for three albums. Bassist Brett Rasmussen explained “Most of us have known each other for quite a few years and we were all really excited to put together a new band that would be more than just a side project.” Nations Afire has come out of the gate swinging and has signed on for a month long European tour as their first tour which includes festivals dates with NOFX, Rise Against and The Get Up Kids.
