WORLD/INFERNO Kickoff US Tour w/ Against Me!


Kickoff US Tour w/ Against Me Tonight!

“A combination of Bruce Springsteen, The Pogues and the noise the devil makes as cities burn. It's one thing to talk about the destruction of institutions that hold society together, but another to mean it. World/Inferno Friendship Society means it, or seems to, and it's unclear which is more dangerous.” - NPR

"A raucous, nine-person cabaret act that introduced a welcome touch of anarchy to the cozy Caucus Patio" - Entertainment Weekly

"Showtune-esque vocals, plenty of horns, and hooks that are impossible *not* to sing along to." - Alternative Press

“If you're looking for something different, important and fun (all at the same time), then I can think of no CD that fits the bill as well as Red-Eyed Soul.” –

"The word "unique" doesn't even describe half of the qualities that make the WORLD INFERNO / FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY a compelling recorded and live act. This compact of friends and roaring musicians is "disorderly conduct" in motion, enacted with a fervor that cannot be washed out." -

"Addicted to Bad Ideas" is the new album from the collective known as The World/Inferno Friendship Society, Gotham City's anarchist big-band originally known for bringing their brand of circus inspired swing-punk to rooftops, basements, halls, churches and anywhere their fire-breathing mayhem was accepted. The Inferno has since created a cult-following (especially in the New York City metropolitan area) that is so magical, their live appearances are some of the most intense and eagerly anticipated events of the weekend.

Recorded by Don Fury and featuring, for the first time ever, a full orchestra backing the group, "Addicted to Bad Ideas" is by far the band's most fascinating work yet. Premiering live in Fall 2007 @ WXPN's World Cafe in Philadelphia, in conjunction with the Chunksaah Records release of the band's new record, one of America’s finest progressive punk bands bring their unique vision from the clubs to the stage for the first time, and delves into the most comprehensive and intriguing work the World/Inferno Friendship Society has ever brought us.

The World/Inferno Friendship Society is not a rock band with a horn section; it's a fully-integrated orchestra of young men and women writing for you songs of the wine, freedoms and foibles which make life more than waking up and going to work every day. Nine pieces - 2 drummers 4 horns 2 guitars way too many teeth a piano and an accordion. Sign the fuck up!

Fate, my friends, loves the Fearless. And We, in turn, love You. Don't turn away from love, friends--don't be chicken. THE WORLD/INFERNO FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY is all the proof you need. With songs so sweet and a quicksilver beat, a lean 9-piece orchestra of girls and boys plays the cabaret-soul-punkety soundtrack to your romances and disasters. The vaudeville circus you always wished your life could be can be--just come and see!
