About Colour of Fire

Formed in late 2001, this York, England-based rock band was signed just a year later to Riverman Records. Founded by close friends Owen Richards (guitar/vocals) and Stuart Jones (guitar/vocals), who, after playing a number of acoustic shows together, recruited Thom Craigen (bass) and Matthew Lunn (drums). Taking the band name from a song by dance outfit Boards Of Canada , they received considerable airplay on UK radio shows such as Steve Lamacq’s Evening Sessions and the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show with their first single ‘Decisions Decisions’. With catchy riffs and soaring Muse -like vocals, the band created their own commercial heavy rock style, appealing to both indie and metal audiences. In August 2004 they released their debut album, Pearl Necklace, produced by Steve Osborne (U2 / Placebo). This contained some impressive pop/rock songs such as the memorable single ‘Exile’ and the emo-sounding ‘Italics’. The album failed to make a big impact on the mainstream UK charts but it built them a strong following. Colour Of Fire went on to support Placebo on a major European tour in autumn 2004 but surprisingly they broke up several months later. Since then Richards and Lunn have gone to work separately on new projects.
