Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the signing of Norway’s Fight The Fight in the USA! Fight The Fight‘s self-titled debut (released digitally in January 2017) is young, fresh and bursting with energy – just as you would expect from a band that has been buzzing around the Norwegian underground for several years. Now, the record will finally see a physical release in the USA in early 2018 via Blacklight Media/Metal BladeRecords.
Chris Santos (Blacklight Media) comments: “If ever there was a band that hooked me on the first listen, it was Fight The Fight!
Fight The Fight seamlessly weave together classic old school riffing with cutting edge grooves and have a knack for making every single song they write not just heavy, but catchy as fuck! To top it off, these guys are natural born total rock stars. The sky is the limit for Fight The Fight and I’m so stoked to take the ride with them!”
Brian Slagel (Metal Blade Records) adds: “Once again my buddy Chris Santos has found an amazing band! We are super excited to have Blacklight Media working with Fight The Fight! Check them out!!”
Erlend Gjerde (Indie Recordings) comments: “We’re very excited to partner with the great team at Blacklight Media and Metal Blade for Fight The Fight in North America. Their enthusiasm and dedication to working with us on the band made our decision very easy – Let’s do this!”
Barely breaking into their twenties, Fight The Fight has already been a band – though under a different name (Faenskap) – for more than a decade. It’s the classic story of childhood friends and schoolmates whose dreams and ambitions run high, and ultimately form a band together. Pushing the whole project to the limit of their capabilities, they succeeded in reaching their goal: creating a record that reflects their vision of what’s to come. Not your average album, this mature, well-composed rock/metal grenade immediately explodes with memorable hooks, catchphrases and choruses, and the rock, punk, metal and black metal elements are woven into a unique and progressive sound. With this debut, it is clear that Fight The Fight is destined for great things.
