Acquiring the music group name from a music by dance clothing Planks Of Canada , they received substantial airplay on UK radio displays such as for example Steve Lamacq’s Evening Classes as well as the BBC Radio 1 Rock and roll Show making use of their 1st solitary ‘Decisions Decisions’. With catchy riffs and soaring Muse -like vocals, the music group created their very own industrial heavy rock design, attractive to both indie and metallic viewers. In August 2004 they released their debut recording, Pearl Necklace, made by Steve Osborne (U2 / Placebo). This included some amazing pop/rock songs like the unforgettable single ‘Exile’ as well as the emo-sounding ‘Italics’. The recording failed to create a big effect on the mainstream UK graphs but it constructed them a solid following. Color Of Fire continued to aid Placebo on a significant Western tour in fall months 2004 but remarkably they split up several months later on. Since that time Richards and Lunn possess gone to function separately on fresh projects.
