THE BLUE STONES RELEASE
“BE MY FIRE” MUSIC VIDEO
NEW LP BLACK HOLES OUT NOW
Alt-rock duo The Blue Stones release the new video for the single “Be My Fire” today.
“We like to think of ‘Be My Fire’ as a metaphor for love and lust,” says frontman Tarek Jafar. “We wanted a video that would capture fun, flirting and pursuit. ‘Be My Fire’ is that song you hear when toggling between fantasy and reality.”
Just wrapping a U.S. tour supporting Grandson and several festival dates including Bottle Rock, Shaky Knees, LaureLive, and 98Rock Festivals, The Blue Stones are working on new music with plans to release new material this Fall. Later this year, the band will be heading overseas to headline their first European tour. Fans in Europe can expect to see a brand new set. Full tour dates are below.
The Blue Stones recently released three new videos filmed when the band stopped by SiriusXM. In addition to two original songs, the group did a knockout cover of The Rolling Stones classic, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” Those tracks and more are featured on an all-new EP that came out on January 11, 2019, titled, Live In SiriusXM Studios.
Late last year the group debuted a music video for their hit single, “Black Holes (Solid Ground),” via Billboard Magazine. Directed by Jason Lester and filmed in Los Angeles, CA, this was the first music video the band had released from their new LP. “Black Holes (Solid Ground)” peaked at #31 on the Alternative Chart and #22 on the Mainstream Rock Chart simultaneously, a feat not many artists get to claim and even fewer claim on an independent record label.

Black Holes was released in October of last year to some credible critical acclaim. Alternative Press put it well by saying the band “is quickly carving out a name for themselves in the Blues Rock, Alt Garage world-making stages quake and leaving only one question in their wake: ‘All that from two guys?’”
Listening to the larger-than-life, but tight and precise blues-rock of The Blue Stones on their eOne debut, Black Holes, it is astonishing to discover just two people create all that sound and fury.
