INFO: The Fiery Furnaces are a U.S. indie rock band formed in Brooklyn, New York, in 2000.[1] The band's primary members are Matthew and Eleanor Friedberger. The brother and sister are originally from Oak Park, Illinois, a near-western suburb of Chicago.The band signed with the Rough Trade music label in 2002, and recorded their debut album, Gallowsbird's Bark, the same year. Released in the autumn of 2003, that album garnered critical praise for its clever wordplay and original songwriting[citation needed] and was often compared in the press to The White Stripes[citation needed] due to the garage blues elements of the band’s sound and the fact that the band are siblings, though, in the case of The White Stripes this was a misconception perpetrated and encouraged by the band itself.
