Sig And The Firepilots Debut New Single ‘Click Bait’: Rock music fans, get ready to headbang to the debut single of Sig and The Firepilots titled ‘Click Bait’. Released on the 21st birthday of frontman Sig’s daughter, the song showcases the band’s signature blend of hard-hitting guitar riffs and infectious grooves that will leave you craving for more.
Hailing from Cannock, the band has already gained a reputation for their electrifying live shows at Adefest and The Station, and ‘Click Bait’ is their latest offering to the masses. Produced by Sheena Sear and engineered by Mark Stuart, the track tackles the concept of clickbait, something we are all too familiar with in this digital age. The song offers social commentary on the topic while being ironically part of the problem.
The music video further emphasizes this message with flashing images of various clips to exemplify the irritation of clickbaiting. Praised for their highly catchy and heavy riffs, Sig and The Firepilots have received accolades from Vicky Hamilton, former manager for Guns N’ Roses, Mötley Crüe, and Poison.
The band consists of three talented musicians – Sig on guitar and vocals, Dave Clarke on bass and backing vocals, and Dougie McGrath on drums and vocals. Despite forming the band in 2019, the trio has a wealth of experience individually, with Sig having formed multiple bands such as Leisure Drive, The Rub, and Silica Go Go. Dave Clarke’s experience playing in Funk Metal fusion bands and being a member of a Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute act brings infectious grooves to the band’s sound. Meanwhile, Dougie McGrath’s background playing in punk bands and a Green Day tribute band provides an intense energy to the rhythm section.
Their mantra “Don’t bore us, give us the chorus” is evident in the hook of ‘Click Bait’, which is a powerful, groove-fueled introduction to the song. The band draws inspiration from a range of bands such as Thin Lizzy, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Soundgarden, and they are poised to become the rock scene’s newest darlings.
With upcoming projects and shows on the horizon, Sig and The Firepilots are a band to keep an eye on. Follow them on their social media to keep up with their latest news, and if ‘Click Bait’ is anything to go by, we can expect some serious hard-hitting grooves from these rockers.
