Give Me Fire! is the fifth studio album by Swedish band Mando Diao, produced by Salla Salazar of hip hop group The Latin Kings and his brother Masse.
One of Mando Diao’s roadies knew the hip hop producing brothers and introduced Gustaf Norén to them. Norén says he originally approached The Salazar Brothers as he is a massive Latin Kings fan and wanted to get an autograph, but the visit ended with a recorded song. After sitting on the song for a while he played it for the other members of the band and they decided to record more tracks with Salle & Masse.
Björn Dixgård says that the band has been inspired by movies and television with this album and cites Quentin Tarantino and Twin Peaks. He also says that the producers' record collection has been a source of inspiration as well.
This album is a danceable album with a strong focus on drums, bass and percussion. The final mix of the album was done in Los Angeles. It reached number one on the Swiss, the Austrian and the German album charts, while reaching number 2 in Sweden, only beaten by Bruce Springsteen's Working on a Dream.
The band played a special version of the album's first single entitled "Fight with Somebody" live at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen for Wladimir Klitschko's fight versus Ruslan Chagaev on June 20, 2009.
Ahead of its UK release on November 6, 2009, Give Me Fire! was available in full on the UK music site ClashMusic.com alongside a photo gallery of the band on tour.
The song "Mean Street" is featured in the game, Need for Speed: Shift.
The album was released in the United States on May 31, 2011.
