Laflamme - Firetruck
Since forming in 2013, Surrey 4 piece rock and punk band Laflamme have released a handful of well received eps and singles, the latest being the "name your price" single Firetruck/Lemon Squeezy which came out last summer and which you can find along with their earlier work here : https://laflammeband.bandcamp.com/
With influences as diverse as AC/DC, Lou Reed, Ramones, Blink 182, Biffy Clyro and Iron Maiden, this is a band that are skilled musicians playing high octane rock music that has a punk attitude. The line up features Richie Lambert (guitar/vocals), Kieron Robathan (guitar/vocals), Alex Dobouney (drums) and Ditch (bass/vocals).
This is a slow burner of a song that builds to a rousing climax and it's called Firetruck....
