About Friendly Fire Merch

Friendly Fires met at St. Albans School. At the age of 13, in years eight and nine (the second or third year), the members formed their first band, a post-hardcore outfit called First Day Back, covering songs by Green Day and other rock-like artists, which existed until they began university. During this time, lead singer Ed Macfarlane released his own music (under his own name) through the electronic labels Skam and Precinct Recordings.

Upon leaving university, they formed a new band inspired by dance music, “lush shoegaze melodies,”  and classic pop songwriting. The name Friendly Fires originates from the opening track of the Section 25 LP Always Now. The band considers German techno labels Kompakt, Carl Craig, and Prince to be their greatest influences.


The Friendly Fire Band, Birmingham, UK’s most active reggae/dancehall live outfit both on stage and in the studio, with releases on the Friendly Fire Music label, is introduced.

2022 has been a big year for the band whose track, “It’s a Brum Ting,” was picked up by the BBC for all their coverage of the Commonwealth Games held in Birmingham this summer. The track has become a local anthem, popular everywhere they travel to play, and they are busy putting the finishing touches on the album on which it will be included.

The Band’s fiery performances ft 3 Birmingham artists, the hard way : Myki Tuff, Laddy D and Tomlin Mystic as well as adding Solo Banton to the roster of artists they work with as a backing band alongside such reggae royalty as, Michael Prophet, Tippa Irie, Susan Cadogan, Earl 16, YT, Dawn Penn, Daddy Freddy etc
