Self Made In Fire LP - Winter 2022
Updated: Mar 2
The title track from the upcoming Only Fables full length album, Self Made In
Fire, is a step into the shadow compared to the self-titled traditional, hardcore-punk EP
released in Fall of 2021.
The track stands as the “alter call” to live for and define yourself. Inspired by the
story of the biblical fall of Lucifer and his angels from heaven, this is a callout to
the god of heaven for creating life only to enslave it. It’s about finding who you are
and disallowing others to define you.
“Here we define that which we are, wholly divine, self-made in fire.”
Embracing the idea that we are divine in our own rights, I believe we are the ultimate arbiters of our own realities.
The album will follow a similar thread as it thematically centers around the
destruction the Christian church has caused through proselytizing people and
groups—and murdering those who oppose it. From the creation of angels to the
Satanic Panic (which I believe remains active today), we’ve chosen to define this
upcoming album as “church burner punk.”
“I’m definitely trying to write things a bit darker this time.” Said Brett Bronner, composer and producer. “I’m trying to keep the speed and stompiness of the punk-hardcore, but with a lot more metal influence getting in there.”
We are dedicated to the traditional punk sound and attitude but we are allowing
ourselves the freedom to rest in our intrinsic, and imperative darkness. This album
is a call to define yourself and live in that light.
Some songs break from the overall theme and cling to the struggles of life and
desire, battling with the “good and evil” that dwell in us. They hold to the belief
that we define morality and we choose our own way. Chane Me, on the surface is a
story about a werewolf, but when peeled back, you find an allegory for the
realization of desire with a cost, (“full of power at the loss of control”) leaving us
to question what we are all capable of if given what we truly want.
Writing for the album, Self Made In Fire, began in early January 2022. Four tracks
have been completed and the first single, Panic, will be hitting all streaming
platforms in May 2022. Self Made In Fire will drop in Winter 2022.
