fIREHOSE announce anthology - 'lowFLOWS'

fIREHOSE anthology

To coincide with their upcoming reunion tour, fIREHOSE are putting out an anthology of their musical career. When legendary hardcore crew Minutemen called it quits in 1985 following the death of frontman D. Boon, Mike Watt and George Hurley enlisted Ed Crawford and formed fIREHOSE. The band played together until 1994, putting out five albums along the way, before splitting up.

Now, 27 years later, Watt, Crawford, and Hurley are back together again, and they have decided to commemorate the event with lowFLOWS: The Columbia Anthology (’91-’93). The set consists of two discs, the first containing Flyin’ The Flannel and the second containing Mr. Machinery Operator. Both discs also include a bunch of bonus tracks of live audio, rarities, and previously unheard releases. Take a look at the full lowFLOWS tracklist and fIREHOSE’s tour schedule below.
