About The Event
Equally British and American, the Backfires are a rock band from both sides of the Atlantic. The band formed in 2018 when Alex Gomez (frontman) studied in London, meeting Harry Ruprecht (lead guitar) and Max Wanduragala (drums). Gomez’s childhood friend Matt Walter (bass) joined the band in 2019 ahead of recording their debut EP. In January 2020, the band finished recording their EP, Consider the Backfires, in London. Two months later, the world went into lockdown and the band was separated due to border closures between the United States and the United Kingdom. The band released Consider the Backfires in 2021, and remotely-recorded and released follow-up single “Song 55” later in the year. At the end of 2021, the band finally reunited in London to record their 2022 singles “Blindsided” and “Reflections On My TV”.
