HembreeHouse on FireDownload image Download image
After releasing 3 singles and an EP, Hembree have completed their first full length, House on Fire. It comes out April 26th via Thirty Tigers, with singles "Culture", "Almost", and "Heart" preceding it.

The ten songs on Hembree’s debut reveal a band filled with the confidence that is required of those who sound self-assured while discussing themes of indecision and uncertain identity. They took the time necessary to write the album they wanted to make, discovering themselves in the process. In fact, by the time the tracking began, Flynn and the band were so dialed in that the recording only took a couple of weeks—a stark contrast to the “boot camp” he went through in the writing phase. With House on Fire, Hembree have achieved what it takes some bands an entire career to replicate, a sure sign of their strengths in terms of songwriting, performance, production, and synergy. And it’s certain that from here they will only continue to grow.

"Hembree knows just how and when to send a rock anthem soaring to the heavens. Take 'Had It All,' which starts out as a jittery little indie-pop nugget before bursting into a planet-sized chorus: Within about 90 seconds, you know it's going to get stuck in your head all day."
