The Tire Fires (Philip Simondet and Will Roberts) are an Americana Punk Rock band from Minneapolis.
Even their happiest songs are pretty fucking depressing and their lyrics are full of dark humor, but they play them all through giant grins and humorous banter.
"Like John Lennon without the peace" - some drunk guy
"You can’t be too drunk or you think it’s for real depressing but if you’re just the right amount of drunk there are some fun tunes" - some other drunk guy
“Depressing, but honest... and also funny” - some high guy
"the happiest un-happy anti-acoustic acoustic punkiest non punk band of the nineties trapped in the noughties who forget it's 2021" - some guy on the internet (who sounds pretty drunk or high to us)
“Tenacious D meets Green Day” - some sound guy
