Saskatchewan’s post-hardcore outfit Bonfire are teaming up with Exclaim! Magazine to exclusively premiere their new music video ‘Mom’s Garden’, the title track from their new EP that was released on October 2nd plus was produced and mastered by Karl Shubach from Misery Signals.
The video showcases a beautifully lit room that matches the warmth coming from the band performing ‘Mom’s Garden.’ There is little to no eye contact for the duration of the video to enhance the melancholic atmosphere portrayed in the lyrics and tone of the song. The band is bringing their signature brand of energetic yet somber movement that embodies their post-hardcore, folk-infused music.
“Thank you to Exclaim! for hosting the premiere of our music video ‘Mom’s Garden’ the title track of our debut EP. The video was directed by the talented Dylan Hryciuk of Versa Films. The video captures the sombre tone of the music and lyrics through a warm colour palette, as well as depicts the intensity and emotion of our live performances through quick and creative cinematography. We couldn’t be happier to share it and deeply encourage you to check it out. This release has meant the world to us, and we are unbelievably excited to finally release it!” – Kurt Wolfe (Drums)

Album Line Up: Greg Demers (Guitar/Vocals), James Wojak (Guitar), Thomas Gelley (Bass), Kurt Wolfe (Drums)
Bonfire creates dark, honest music painted through sorrowful lyrics and a haunting guitar tone. The four piece hails from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and features members of Hhogwash and other local bands from the hardcore scene.
Lyrically Greg Demers (guitar/vocals) draws from family issues, relationships, and in general low points in life to compose an image for listeners. Thomas Gelley (Bass) and James Wojak (guitar) generate the resonating instrumentals while Kurt Wolfe (drums) drives the songs forward.
Despite the emotional lyrics and dreary instrumentals their passion and energy on stage is explosive, yet sombre. Bonfire started in 2012 and since then has released Adderall (demo) and a split with Newborn last year.
The band is releasing ‘Mom’s Garden’ Fri., Oct. 2, along with a fall tour across Eastern Canada.

“Though they’ve been dropping songs online over the past couple weeks, and will be putting more up over the next few as well, getting people hyped about a new album they have coming out. Bread from Flipper and Low, The Melvins and Harvey Milk, if this is the future of Hardcore, or Post-Hardcore, or whatever genre people are calling it, I need to check out more shows.” – Deadcitypress.ca
