Furnace : Find a Way
? Always in Style ? Good songwriting never goes out of style and with the release of the newest CD Find a Way by The Furnace, it's easy to see why this Phoenix, AZ 5-piece is at the top of their game. The Furnace stuck to what they know best and combined hard rock riffs & rhythm with melodic vocals. Sounds like a simple formula? It is. 'People don't care how fast you play or how long your dreads are, they just know what sounds good. It's these people who will decide your fate within five seconds of hearing you on the radio' says guitarist Casey Weaver. Their latest disc Find a Way has seven prime examples of this. Running the spectrum with songs like Make Me Bleed a bittersweet tongue lashing, to radio power-rock (Comfort), to hard-chargers (Find A Way) to ultra-spirited ballads (All Of This) The Furnace believes it's time to deliver the meat-n-potatoes of good music. Combing influences of COC, modern Sabbath, & LifeOfAgony along with a unique blend of members is what gives The Furnace their edge. Backed by a relentless live show, this 7-song disc is aimed at taking their fan base and exposure to a worldwide level. Future plans for the band include returning to the studio to record an acoustic version of the song 'Find A Way' as well as their own version of the Christmas classic 'Silent Night' available for Christmas '05; both will be available exclusively on the web. Studio time will also yield pre-production for the next CD for release in 2006. The Furnace is guitarists Dan Drago & Casey Weaver, bassist Dave Garcia, drummer Ryan Eibling, and singer David Armstrong.
