Based out of Chicago, Pyro Fighter first caught attention opening for the Grammy Award winning Italian DJ, Benny Benassi in their then home town, Columbus, OH. With the aid of local rave lord DJ's Carma and Attak, along with the influence of local photographers, bloggers, and VJs, the organized hype has led to an all out take-over of the city and its inhabitants.
Not even a year after their formation, the group caught the attention of MTV and had their song "LMFAO" selected to be featured on the Season 2 Premier of the smash hit show "Jersey Shore". With over 5 million viewers, the response was overwhelming and led them to have nearly the entire track played again on the very next episode. After that, the internet hype for the track "LMFAO" has virtually exploded on YouTube, iTunes, and SoundCloud. The success of that placement led to their song "Electrobotic" being featured on the season 3 Premiere and 2nd episode of Jersey Shore along with a full screen I.D.... MTV threw Pyro Fighter in the mix again, adding them to the playlist of the movie "Worst. Prom. Ever." And, appropriately, MTV recently added Pyro to the playlist at O Music Awards "World's Longest Dance Party".
Less than 4 months after living in Chicago, the two teamed up with top world-wide DJ Bad Boy Bill and his producer Antonio Sage to re-produce their hit single "I'm The One". The song was released on their album "The Whole Universe Knows My Name" and on iTunes in August 2011. "I'm The One" was immediately picked up by DJ Spin who set the group up with their major radio debut on the Street Mix on Chicago's biggest radio station B96 and Riverside, California's KGGI.
They have their own station on Pandora, have topped the charts of PureVolume.com numerous times, have been featured on indie radio stations in the US and Canada, were named one of the top 15 acts to see at North Coast Music Festival (Right between Fatboy Slim and Wiz Kalifa), and are sponsored by the infamous Dirty Shirty Apparel.
The duo plans to keep releasing fresh singles to their hungry fan base as fast as they can pump them out and will be making their way to a city near you with their first stop of 2012 at Red Gorilla Festival in Austin Texas.
With a successful future ahead, thanks to incredible fan support, Pyro Fighter continues to conquer, not because they care, but because they don't give a FUCK.
