"On All Lit Up, the band leapfrogs through high-octane ska that retains that solid level of musicianship and talent without ever coming off as boastful or showy. But even more importantly, Misterfire keeps things fun and dancey."
~ Chris Morin, Ominocity
Misterfire's debut album, All Lit Up, was recorded at The Avenue Recording Company in Saskatoon during the second half of 2011. The album was co-produced by Misterfire’s own Ben Fortosky and The Avenue’s co-owner/engineer Mark Klopoushak. All Lit Up contains eleven unique original tracks that represent the band’s musical diversity, instrumental prowess and a refusal to be confined to a single genre. From upbeat ska-infused tracks like "Mixed Signals" and "That Guy" to smooth reggae-rock jams like "Oasis" and "Overboard" to witty party anthems like "The Wangster Song" and ".22 Pickup", All Lit Up provides tracks that appeal to listeners with diverse musical tastes.
