The Fight (Punk) Biography
K8!--Lead Vocals, Guitar / Jak--Drums / Scott--Guitar / Matt--Bass
Being whisked around the world, working with famous producers, and having music industry types beating down your door isn't exactly how most people spend their youthful teenage years. For The Fight, however, it's only the beginning of a most promising career.
The Fight formed in 2000 and hail from Dudley, a small town outside of Birmingham, England. Long known as a breeding ground for caustic rock and punk bands, the UK has once again given us a band that embodies the spirit of youthful rebellion. The band undoubtedly possesses a hint of that old English sound in their music, citing Gen X, The Clash and The Buzzcocks as influences.
The discovery of the band is quite the rags to riches story. K8 slipped a copy of her demo CD to a member of the New Found Glory road crew while they were on tour in the UK. After exchanging several hands, Chad Gilbert, guitarist for New Found Glory, caught wind of the record, really liked what he heard, and had them open a show for New Found Glory on that very tour! With the demo in hand, Chad returned to the states and passed it along to punk rock tycoon Fat Mike, owner of Fat Wreck Chords and founding member of NOFX. Within a matter of weeks, The Fight found themselves involved in quite a whirlwind of chance success.
Their first EP, "Home is Where the Hate Is," was released via Fat Wreck Chords in 2002. Recording with Bill Stevenson (Descendents, Black Flag) at the highly esteemed Blasting Room studios, is quite the opportunity for such a young band. Their full-length record, "Nothing New Since Rock ‘N’ Roll" released on Repossession Records (November 16th, 2004),was with producer Neal Avron (Everclear, New Found Glory, SR-71, Yellow Card) to spearhead the project.
In the live arena, this fresh-faced foursome has found themselves sharing stages in their native country with some of the biggest names in the punk rock community: Rancid, Yellowcard, Sugarcult and New Found Glory, to name a few. Aside from the UK, The Fight has already landed their energetic live show in the states, finding themselves on tour with some of the best up-and-coming American acts like Brand New, The Starting Line, and Moneen.
