Firegarden's 1649 EP represents the cream of a year's worth of songwriting undertaken between heavy gigging commitments. As mixing was being concluded, it became apparent that this would be Andy Key's last contribution to Firegarden, and as such 1649 stands as final testament to the four-piece line up of 2014-2017 that recorded the Choose Your Own Adventure album. 1649 rips through the speedy "Ride the Storm", the AC/DC meets Deep Purple earworm "Borderline", the riffing and funking "1649" with its extended coda, and finishes on the proggy "Queen" featuring guest vocals by Ferret from Skyligers. Get ready to party like it's 1649!
