Firewater is the fourth full-length studio album released by indie rock band Silkworm. The album was recorded and released two years after guitarist/vocalist Joel RL Phelps left the band, leaving the remaining.

Joel Phelps' semi-forced exit made a big difference. On one hand, it was bad: Phelps was an integral part of the band since its inception. And on the other, it was good: the pared-down sound fit the band well, and that's quite evident on the four-sided Firewater. Left to two voices, the band produces its most cohesive and precise set, despite it being their most broad; Firewater clocks in with 16 tracks at an hour long. Not a minute is wasted, and everything sounds more measured and relaxed.

This album has an average beat per minute of 127 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 84/164 BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page.
