Welsh Rockers Fireroad To Support Stereophonics At Newport Gig

South Wales rockers Fireroad have been confirmed as the main support for the Stereophonics’ gig in Newport in December, following the announcement that the band’s debut album ‘I Got Sound’ will hit shelves on November 5th.

Richard Jones, the band’s frontman, has a long history of performing within the local rock scene. In his youth he played with the Tragic Love Company, that later evolved to become South Wales most well known band the Stereophonics. After leaving, he pursued other avenues whilst maintaining a close friendship with the Kelly Jones, Richard Jones and the late Stuart Cable - so much so that this year Kelly Jones invited Richard to join him onstage and play at this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust Show. Richard jumped at the chance to join Kelly as well as musical heroes Ronnie Wood and Paul Weller - onstage to play to a packed out audience.

After deciding to pursue his musical interests, he was spotted by Habit Formed Record boss Chris Rogers, who was keen to sign him as a solo artist. But Jones had other ideas - he pulled together some musicians he regularly collaborated with and Fireroad was born .They produced a full band demo and once Rogers had heard it, it was agreed that they were ready to record their debut album.

With a studio booked, the band recorded their debut album 'I Got Sound’. The album was mastered by Pete Maher, who has worked with the world’s leading artists including U2, The Killers, Jack White and Beady Eye, and Pete has nothing but praise for what he has called 'a fresh new sound for classic rock'.

Compared to Gaslight Anthem and the Foo Fighters, and influenced by everything from a lifetime of good music, all who have heard and seen them live have nothing but praise for the band and their songs - and now, you have a chance to catch them sharing the stage with Stereophonics in Newport this December. Check below to find tickets - and keep your eyes peeled for ‘I Got Sound’ this December.

A budding artist's early influences will almost certainly shape the sound of their debut record. In the ‘60s and ‘70s, they were often rammed full of cover versions and songs already flogged to death by a band as they perfected their chops. The Rolling Stones’ eponymous debut, for example, contained just one track penned by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards – Tell Me (You’re Coming Back) – among its 12.
