LoveLikeFire is a big hit with musicians and the media but hasn’t yet hit the mainstream. Their compulsive, upbeat songs would have become instant hits if the band began their career in Britain, but they remain underground in the U.S.

The band will be playing songs from their new album at Kilby Court next Monday, Sept. 15.

LoveLikeFire recently signed onto British label Heist or Hit Records, and have been spending the summer recording a full-length debut album. Instead of touring in the UK, they have been making their way across the states. The tour stretches from coast to coast, but with only one appearance in Utah.

The album doesn’t have an official U.S. title yet, but in the U.K. it will be called Tear Ourselves Away. It was recorded at Tiny Telephone in San Francisco with musician John Vanderslice and is produced by Bill Racine. Racine has worked with producer David Fridmann with bands like The Flaming Lips and Sparklehorse, and has individually produced albums by Rogue Wave and Mates of State.

Most of the performances on LoveLikeFire’s tour will include more than one act. They’ve shared the stage with bands like The Teenagers, The Virgins, and Black Kids. However, they’re the sole act at Kilby Court on Monday.

Kilby Court shows several bands per week, and tickets for performances generally range from $7-$25, depending on the venue and the popularity of the band, and are available at the door.
