FIGHT AMPUTATION Keystone Noise Series #4 – Vinyl 7″ (green)

Pressing info : 2015 pressing on XXXXX vinyl 7″.

“…fierce noise rock peppered with hardcore. Think Torche or Helms Alee or the like, but you’ll also think it’s fucking good.” –
“Beneath a hard crust of booming toms and slippery Unsane-esque rhythms lies an efficient, borderline-pop songwriting sensibility”-Stereogum

Reptilian Records has announced the next artist to release a 7” via their Keystone Noise Series will be Fight Amp! To be released on September 9th, the 7” will be a two song offering of sludgy noise-punk goodness featuring “No Trace” b/w “Hide Your Teeth.” The latter also features guest backing vocals from Pat Troxell, (now of CREEPOID), who was actually the original vocalist of Fight Amp on their Reptilian Records 2004 debut single.
News of the 7” comes hot on the heels of the band’s newest critically acclaimed EP, Constantly Off (Brutal Panda). The fans cried for more, and here it is- recorded during the same studio sessions at Gradwell House by Steve Poponi (Into It. Over It.,Ladder Devils). The new material adds another layer to Fight Amp’s constantly evolving sonic brew of noise-rock, sludge, hardcore, grunge and punk. It has received positive ink from the likes of outlets including Stereogum, Noisey, Revolver, Metal Sucks, New Noise and many others.
Composed of Mike McGinnis (guitar, vocals), Jon DeHart (bass, vocals) and Dan Smith (drums), Fight Amp hails from the seedy underbelly of Philadelphia’s thriving noise rock scene. Drawing influence from Dead Kennedys, Cherubs, all things AmRep, His Hero Is Gone, Eyehategod, punk rock, skateboarding, and foreclosed suburban ghost towns, the band has crafted a sound similar to early Melvins being molested by Queens of the Stone Age.
The band recently completed a tour with Ken Mode and has several upcoming East Coast Dates including with Eyehategod and Weedeater as well as a west coast run anchored at Day of the Shred in Santa Ana, CA on Nov. 1st.
