Bio: Shelflife is excited to announce the highly anticipated debut LP Switch Me On from The Fireworks, coming February 10th on LP, CD and digital formats. The LP comes in two colors: limited blood red vinyl will be offered exclusively at Rough Trade Shops, while limited white vinyl will be available at

After two brilliant 7" singles, the sold out Fireworks EP and nearly sold out Runaround, and one flexi featuring the cover of Girls At Our Best! "Getting Nowhere Fast", the band are ready to unleash their debut album Switch Me On to the world. Needless to say, those who have been waiting patiently will be rewarded. Recorded at Soup Studios by David Holmes and Simon Trought (Allo Darlin, Comet Gain), the album continues right where the band left off: more chainsaw fuzz-drenched feedback, more guitar pop hooks, more reverb-soaked Matthew and Emma vocals, and more jumping off your f**king seats! The LP also shows the versatility in sound of the band, when the distortion pedals take a back seat to shimmering 12 string guitars. All and all, this album is made up of thirteen "A" sides and if you can sit still while listening to this record, you're surely walking dead!

The band continues to play around the UK and Germany, including London, Bristol, Nottingham, Manchester, and Hamburg, with more gigs planned for 2015.

The Fireworks are Emma Hall (Pocketbooks), Matthew Rimell (Big Pink Cake), visual artist Isabel Albiol, and Shaun Charman (The Wedding Present/The Popguns), based in London and Brighton, UK.
