Arsonists Get All the Girls
Through a series of unplanned success , Northern California’s progressive experimental grind beach bums Arsonists Get All the Girls (AGATG) have transcended their music to levels far beyond their expectations. The group has created memorable experiences for fans since their inception in 2005 with their delivery of four outstanding albums and relentless touring all over the world.
Arsonists Get All The Girls released their debut album “Hits From The Bow” in 2006 via Process Records and the attention attained by the album quickly landed the group on the Century Media Records roster, which re-issued the album in 2007. The band later released “The Game Of Life” (2007), “Portals” (2009) and “Motherland” (2011) all through Century Media Records. Arsonists Get All The Girls spent countless time on the road and promoting their releases and reaching fans all over.
Early on in the bands career, they shared the stage with bands such as Cattle Decapitation, The Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza, Veil of Maya, Dead To Fall, Impending Doom, Despised Icon and many others, which gave the band the platforms to get their music out the masses and display their intense live performance. At this point in the groups career, they were already headlining their own tours and growing at a rapid rate but still attaining strong support slots such as the Thrash and Burn Tour in 2008 with Darkest Hour and later with Carnifex prior to the release of their third studio album, “Portals”.
With the release of “Portals” in 2009, Arsonists Get All The Girls went on a rampage playing festivals and tours that was non-stop until 2014. This included Rocktoberfest 2010 and Rockin’ Roots 2013, in addition to the multiple tours they appeared on with bands such as Rings of Saturn, Norma Jean, Bleeding Through, As Blood Runs Black, Oceano, Horse The Band, Through The Eyes of the Dead, Attila, Suicide Silence, I See Stars and many more.
In 2013, Arsonists Get All The Girls parted ways with guitarist Arthur Alvarez and Vocalist Jared Monnette. Founding member Garin Rosen gave very positive insight to the band’s future from that point forward mentioning, “With Arthur, our main guitar player leaving the band – it gave us the first opportunity to really do whatever we wanted on this album. We went for a new sound mixed with a classic AGATG sound. We are always trying to evolve as a band! This new album will be one of the most ear shattering and mind-bending records you will ever listen to.”
Arsonists Get All The Girls have an unreleased album titled “Listen To The Color” which is a 15-track collection of AGATG resurfacing their thrashy quirky roots. The album was recorded with Zack Ohren (Animosity, All Shall Parish, As Blood Runs Black, and Suffocation). The album clocks in at approximately 30 minutes and features guest vocals from Cameron Reed (former AGATG), Robbie Smith (Heavy Heavy Low Low), Robby Bancroft (Five Characters In Search of an Exit), and AGATG very own Garin Rosen.
Keyboardist Sean Richmond stepped into his secondary role in the band as full time Vocalist, commenting “With Remi and I doing vocals on this new album, the sound will definitely bring the band back to it’s grindy roots. Listen To The Color truly reflects this time in our lives. We all just want to keep writing music and this album is our way of showing you that nothing can stop us! We are nothing without the people that believe in us, so thank you all for being apart of this.” Richmond’s unique piano interludes and classic synth tones are also highlighted throughout the latest recording.
