Fight Fair

Fight+Fair++2009Fight Fair basically picks up where bands like Four Year Strong and A Day to Remember have left off. These two bands as well as several others started a love-hate  kind of rock, that combines the catchiness of pop-punk with the aggressiveness of hardcore. Fight Fair takes this sound and ultimately makes it even more poppy, giving moments that shine off pop rock bands like The White Tie Affair, Metro Station and Hellogoodbye. At their very worst, they’re a guilty pleasure (but a damn good guilty pleasure). At their best they’re an unbelievably fun band that can and will be the perfect music for your friday and saturday nights. And what better time to listen to them than the summertime? Heck their EP, Settle the Score, is destined to be your soundtrack for Summer 09. It sure as hell is gonna be mine.

RIYL: Fireworks, Four Year Strong



Fact+l_c10354c4aafa4ce89d7b7034ac16Japanese post-hardcore/metalcore that reminds you why you love the genre in the first place. Seamlessly combines both the mainstream and underground aspects of the genre in ways few newcomers to the scene can. It’s aggressive, it’s furious and it’s awesome. Not to mention that the fact that their signed to Vagrant Records means we’ll see plenty more of them in the future. 

RIYL: Thursday, Underoath
