(2017/Backfire Records) 15 Tracks - Eddy & The Backfires are definetly the wildest and hottest band the worldwide Rockabilly/Rock'n'Roll scene has ever seen! They are truly up-to-date but do not 'forget' their roots! It grooves like Johnny Burnette's Rock'n'Roll Trio, Jared Freyer's hot guitar licks explode in the solos just like Gene Vincent's Blue Caps, Eddy's vocals varies so much, reminds me to Johnny Preston when it comes to ballads and to Sonny Burgess or John Lewis on the powerful tracks. But on top of it all is the band's trademark like their own stamp, their own original sound. This CD is a steamhammer, it rocks your heart out! It's more than a must have, you need it, you have to buy it and surely you have to listen to it! (MM/Bear Family Records)

Backfire Records artists Eddy & The Backfires are the wildest act on the German Rockabilly circuit! Their own unique brand of authentic Rockabilly sound in combination with their stage presence sets every audience on fire, not only in Germany but everywhere! It's a wildfire!
There's Eddy, the exciting and charismatic front man with his powerful voice, and in fact the band's only founding member in the actual line-up. The line-up changed a few times, e.g. Randy Rich joined the band on drums in 2008 and switched to guitar sometime later when Patrick joined in on drums in 2013. But it happened in 2015 when Eddy could complete his new line-up. With Patrick still on drums, Jared on lead-guitar and Christian slappin' the upright bass, the band's now hawg wild and ready to rock every audience!
If you like the sounds of Elvis, Carl Perkins, Link Wray and pure 50s culture you're on the right track and ready for a Backfires show and for buying their records! These men love 50s music, style and culture and that makes them able to create the unique Backfires sound by heart.
