Arrows to Fire is a USA rock band recognized as a rising star of the U.S alternative rock scene.
Arrows to Fire was formed in 2016 by Austinite singer-songwriter John Joyo and French-American composer Chris Lavigne. The songwriting duo shares a passion for bands like Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Slash and started writing music together, instantly realizing they shared the same alter-ego.
Having been both notable work-hard, play-hard entrepreneurs, Joyo & Lavigne never stopped fighting for their dreams, cultivating their dedication to serving the human kind along with revealing their musical talent.
The songwriting duo are joined by longtime friend and veteran bassist Steve Bernal and Los Angeles drummer Brian Mendes. With a sound as big as Texas, Arrows to Fire delivers energetic guitar riffs, powerful vocals, clever lyrics, and a tight big-rig driving rhythm section that will ring in your head for days.
The band has been performing and selling out shows at legendary venues and festivals such as Antone’s or 3ten Austin City Limits Live, and keeping their sights firmly set on the global stage.
Arrows to Fire assembled a dream team to create their debut album. It was recorded at the legendary Arlyn Studios (Coldplay, Gary Clark Jr, Lucinda Williams, Andre 3000, The Strokes) with co-producer Jacob Sciba (Gary Clark, Cody ChesnuTT, Willie Nelson) and mastering aficionado Howie Weinberg (The Ramones, Black Crowes, Metallica, Tool, Beastie Boys, PJ Harvey, Sonic Youth…).
Their first album launched March 3, 2017 on all major channels. Since the release, Arrows to Fire has been featured on many platforms, and was recently selected on the Amazon Original Playlist “Open Road,” performing an exclusive cover of “Radar Love”.
The band now has a steady following through their strong and growing online presence, gathering fans from all over the US, Latin America, Asia, Europe, and beyond.
Arrows to Fire’s newest single and music video “This is Here” was released in July 2017 with the mission of supporting environmental initiatives, which is something that the band is deeply passionate about. It has already reached ~300,000 views on YouTube, and has definitely put Arrows to Fire on the “watch list” for 2018!
