Amusement Parks On Fire emanated in around 2004 with the circulation of an eponymous debut album, conceived and consummated by the then-adolescent founder Michael Feerick and phonically actualised on a shoestring. Issued on Geoff Barrow (Portishead, Beak>)’s Invada label, it was described by the New Musical Express as 'hedonistic teenage genius' and saw itself projected onto the planetary meta-retina. A live line-up was essentially preformed and extensively performed with the likes of Dinosaur Jr., M83 and dEUS among innumerable other acts of the era. The unit then retreated to Sigur Rós' swimming-pool sanctuary Sundlaugin in Mosfellsbær, Iceland to complete the venturesome sophomore release Out of the Angeles (Deluxe). After several years of international incidence the band crash-landed in Los Angeles in 2009 to make Road Eyes (Deluxe) with producers Michael Patterson (Beck, Nine Inch Nails) and Nicolas Jodoin (Arcade Fire, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club). Again inspired by the locale, the collection was characterised by Alternative Press as ‘sun-drenched, challenging and gratifying… a near-perfect album’. After an 88 month moratorium the group announced their return in 2017 with a new single Our Goal to Realise, followed swiftly with the concept EP All the New Ends in 2018 and rarities collection Thankyou Violin Radiopunk in 2020.
