A four piece grunge rock band hailing from the Vale parish of Guernsey. Coastal Fire Dept. takes alt rock & grunge as a base and then throws in other influences.

In 2020, Ken Andrews of influential alt rock band Failure mixed their single ‘You Are Stuck’ and since then they’ve worked with Fabian Tormin (Biffy Clyro, The Kills & Kurt Vile) on all releases since.

2021 will see more musical collaborations! Comparisons to the Pixies and Nirvana continue to be made but listen to them for yourselves.

Signed to L’islet Records, their last album ‘Connected’ was released in January ‘21 with three brand new singles planned for the summer of ‘21. Follow them on Instagram/FB and their official band website.


Coastal Fire Dept.

Band Members

Saad - Bass

I started playing the bass when I was 14 years old. In 2011 upon returning from traveling around Asia/USA, a friend wanted to start an Alternative Rock/Metal band and needed someone to play Bass, so we formed Stone Em All. 

Unfortunately, Stone Em All broke up after a few years when my friend relocated to the USA, although we did manage to play lots of gigs and festivals, record a mini EP and had fun playing.

I then joined a new band after Stone Em All, as my work colleague Ollie needed a bass player for his band Coastal Fire Dept. and the current project commenced.

Bobby - Lead Guitar

Ozzy - Drums
