About:

A lot has happened in the 10 years that this band, ubiquitously named boysetsfire, has been a band. Imagine a country before 9–11, before "emo" was a term used to described music that is for the most part completely emotionless, before punk broke, then broke down, and finally broke again. When the underground was underground and not a mass marketing term.

This is the story of boysetsfire, a five piece that started in Delaware, a state known more for its gay beaches than its thriving music scene. But before I get ahead of myself, let me just let you know that I have absolutely no interest in rewriting a bland boring promotional piece of garbage. I guess if you like that kind of stuff, you can check out some other websites on the internet.
