Set Fire to Flames were a Canadian instrumental music collective started by David Bryant, consisting of thirteen musicians from Montreal. They released two albums, on Alien8 Recordings and FatCat Records.
Both albums were recorded "in states of little or no sleep, in varying levels of intoxication, and in physical confinement", with the result being brooding, eerie music. Their second album was recorded in a barn in rural Ontario; the sounds of the creaking doors and other background noise are heard in the songs. A third album was recorded in collaboration with the band Jackie-O Motherfucker but never released.
Both album cover images were taken from the work of photographer Michael Ackerman.
The band is often considered a side project of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and the two musical ensembles share several members.
