Here is the translated version:
SET FIRE TO REASON - Remote Controlled
"In September 2012, Rob Sulzmann main voice (SHE LIKES TODD), Mr. Precision on guitar and vocals (88 FINGERS LOUIE, RISE AGAINST), Nat Wright on bass (SHOT BAKER) and Mike Milligan on drums (ARMY OF FRESHMEN) decided to unite to form a new band of energetic punk rock Chicago melodic.
In April this year just released debut EP "Remote Controlled" which is a true reflection of the personality and influence of each of the four members. The result is a promising debut that plasma working on 3 songs all the energy and skill of this new formation, and has the great merit of uniting with skill, good taste and in the same format, many of the contributions of other great bands in recent years.
The E. P. begins with the song "San Andreas" about the difficult situation a couple on the verge of ending their relationship. Fast uncompromising, sharp guitars and melodic voice torn and very in line with its large neighboring band (Rise Against).
"Two of a Kind" expresses the heartbreaking story of two people addicted to drugs and alcohol to bind on a road to nowhere that will push them over the edge. Time less rapid, more melancholic tone and guitars deeper to address the tragic story of destruction and neglect of both individuals.
The paper concludes with the song "Remote Controlled", which gives the name of the EP tíulo and dealing with the passivity of individuals (intentionally remotely controlled by the media) to the serious events that surround us today. Again, the quintet quickly returns to the finest technical and instrumental performance reminiscent of the early records of groups like Belvedere, inserting, in turn, large vocal interludes complaint in the vein of the second stage of Propagandhi .
Set Fire to Reason, a band that are sure to give you enough to talk about and that should now follow closely."
