Fire Works is the third album by the New Zealand post-rock band High Dependency Unit. It was released in New Zealand in March 2001.[1] HDU had supported Steve Albini's band Shellac on a tour of New Zealand, and the album was recorded at Albini's studio in Chicago, but with Albini otherwise engaged production was handled by Dale Cotton.[1]
