One of the most intriguing and eclectic bands to ever come out of Northeastern Pennsylvania, A Fire With Friends, has played sporadic shows within the last year, but the Scranton indie rock group has been relatively quiet for over a year now.

As it turns out, they’ve been busy behind the scenes recording a new EP at JL Studios, appropriately titled “It’s Nice to See You Again.” The band launched a brand new Facebook page to make the announcement, posting the following message:

Oh, hey!

We’re a band. We finished an EP, and it is called “It’s Nice to See You Again.” It’ll be out soon. Here’s a song from it.

Missed you all.

With lots of love,
Dan, Chelsea, John, Karl, Dan, and Mike

Much to the delight of patient fans, they’re also streaming a brand new song, “Keystone,” from the album via SoundCloud:

This will be A Fire With Friends’ first release since putting out a full-length album, “Ghost House,” in January 2014 and undergoing a few lineup changes. Aside from “Keystone,” other tracks on “It’s Nice to See You Again” include “Emma Leigh,” “Brother,” and “Sun Alive.”

Listen to singer/guitarist Dan Rosler on Episode 12 of the NEPA Scene Podcast, where he also performed an original song and a cover of “The World Has Turned and Left Me Here” by Weezer.
