About:

Formed in suburban Orange County in 1994, IGNITE, whose fan base has largely been developed through near–constant global touring, deliver an intelligent, socially and politically aware, melodic brand of hardcore that has taken them and their message to over 30 countries worldwide. Their high–spirited career includes critically lauded records including, A Place Called Home (2000), Past Our Means (1996) and Call On My Brothers (1995). IGNITE has also released various live seven inch, ten inch records and split cdâ??s in which all proceeds have been donated to many environmental groups that the group supports including The Sea Shepherd Society, Earth First and Orange Countyâ??s own Pacific Wildlife Foundation.

The four–piece band––Zoli Teglas (vocals), Brett Rasmussen (bass), Brian Balchack (guitar) and Craig Anderson (drums)––will be entering the recording studio in September with engineer/producer Cameron Webb (Social Distortion, Motorhead, SUM 41, Silverstein). First, however, the new material will be road tested, to smooth out some final wrinkles, when the group ventures to Europe in August to play festivals in Sweden, Germany, Holland, Hungary and also a handful of club shows. â??We did the same thing when we recorded our last cd, we did the European Warped Tour then came home and went straight into the studio, we were very prepared and very tightâ?ť said Teglas.
