Washington, DC’s Trial By Fire, which includes members of Majority Rule and For The Living, play straightforward, no nonsense rocking hardcore, with their minds and hearts firmly positioned within the nation’s capital. Bringing a refreshing enthusiasm and creativity to an often-stagnant scene, Trial By Fire promises to be a welcome addition to Jade Tree. To date, Trial By Fire has released a 4-song demo CD that is available only from their shows. As the band prepares to enter the studio with Brian McTernan at Salad Days (Strike Anywhere, Hot Water Music, New End Original, Milemarker) to record their debut full-length for an anticipated spring 2002 release, they will continue playing out and winning over new fans. Make sure to check them out if you get a chance!
