Amusement Parks on Fire began as the solo project of teenager Michael Feerick in 2004, who wrote and recorded nine songs on a small budget. A couple of well-received albums with a full band followed, culminating in a hiatus in 2013 before the band returned with a single, ‘Our Goal to Realise’, in late 2017.

Now, Amusement Parks on Fire are releasing a new EP, entitled ‘All The New Ends’ on 13 April 2018, and it is a buoyant and captivating return. The title track is a bright, sunny anthem filled with driving, insistent rhythms and Britpop-style vocals and tight harmonies.

This fugues into a hypnotic feedback-infused instrumental, ‘Temporal Rinse’, before the third and final track, a 12 minute magnus opus entitled ‘Internal Flame’ which displays the band’s shoegaze tendencies in all its glory with its wall of fuzzy and wildly anarchic guitars. Here’s a teaser of the EP:
