Official Biography:
"We have taken an 80's Post-Punk foundation and given it a cutting-edge sound for today's audience." 

Flowers in Flames is a captivating, swirling, spark of musical energy that contains elements of Goth, Post Punk, and Psychedelia. Hailing from Northeast Ohio, the band counts influences such as Bauhaus, Siouxsie & the Banshees, the Cure, Joy Division, David Bowie and Velvet Underground, but ultimately creates music that is fresh and new and fits nicely alongside such recent bands as Interpol and Editors. The band's self-titled debut CD contains 10 all original tracks of sonic bliss mixed by Todd Tobias of Guided by Voices fame and mastered at Ante Up Audio in Cleveland, Ohio. It has been well-received by national and international media. Flowers in Flames is an exciting new phenomenon in Northeast Ohio - a melding of 80's Post-Punk, Goth and Psychedelic influences with a modern twist. Composed of members of seminal Akron and Cleveland bands, these seasoned musicians all shared a common view: that they could combine each others' special talents and tastes to create a sound which had never quite been heard before. The recipe included a dollop of Bauhaus, a dash of David Bowie, a pinch of The Cure and a sprinkle of the Velvet Underground. The music crosses genre lines to appeal to a wide variety of audiences. Fans of the aforementioned music styles, as well as Pop, Shoegaze, Alternative and others, will all find music here to enjoy. While a relatively new band, Flowers In Flames has already performed at all the major clubs in Northeast Ohio, and has recently opened for national acts such as ex-Marilyn Manson guitarist Zim Zum’s new band Pop Culture Suicide; Martin Atkins of P.I.L., Killing Joke and Pigface fame; Kevin Junior (Chamber Strings); and played WRUW’s 91.1 FM Studio-A-Rama, where Mission of Burma headlined.
