Backyard Tire Fire will release Good to Be on February 16, 2010 through the band’s own Kelsey Street Records with distribution provided by Thirty Tigers/RED. Good to Be was produced by Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin, who makes an appearance on every track on the album.
Good to Be is a culmination of guitarist/vocalist, Ed Anderson’s thirteen year journey on the road of rock and roll. For the band’s fifth full length release, Backyard Tire Fire delivers an album full of working-man songs that provide an upbeat, glass half full approach to life. Drawing on inspiration from everyday events, Anderson weaves his way through the fabric of life making a patchwork of eleven songs that bear the message of empathy, humanity and hope.
