Worcester, MA group, Playing With Fire combines classic hard rock with beautiful ambient guitar. PWF draws inspiration the likes of Highly Suspect, Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd, and Caspian to create a larger than life sound. Two Weeks, the bands first EP was released in November of 2016. The EP featured songs like Hostage, which takes powerful story like lyrics, and blends them to a catchy musically complex melody. The bands sophomore effort will be released in early 2018. PWF is comprised of singer and lyricist Abbey Basile, Guitarist Carrick McCullough, Bass player Taeo Johnston, Keyboard player Tucker Mitchel, and Drummer Nick Adams.
Formed in 2013, the members of Playing with Fire (P.W.F.) are all between 16 and 18 years old and come from Worcester, MA.
