Born out of a mutual passion for energetic live performance, Brighton-based Fighting Fiction's sound is a powerful collision of Indie-rock guitar riffs, reggae tinged punk and socially aware lyrics. These are songs written with anger and sung with passion. The Brighton based four-piece evoke an honest and fundamentally English sound that is reminiscent of the brooding reggae guitar hooks of 'London Calling' era Clash, the lyrical wordplay and vocal delivery of Billy Bragg, and more recently, the acoustic guitar based sing-along sensibilities of Frank Turner and the King Blues. After a slew of singles and an EP FIGHTING FICTION are ready to reveal the first single from their Mark Williams (Biffy Clyro, Bloc Party, Million Dead, Oceansize) produced debut album. New single ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll is Dead and its Corpse is for Sale’ will be released on 4th July 2011 (Independence Day) through Xtra Mile Recordings (Frank Turner, Crazy Arm, Against Me!). The single, which has already seen strong support on Mike Davies Radio 1 Punk Show, sees the Bristolian’s steady evolution reach new heights and proves the perfect stepping stone before the release of their debut album which can be expected in September 2011. ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll is Dead…’ offers thought provoking lyrics that challenge what musicians stand for in this modern age, selling their souls to large brands that want to try a buy a piece of credibility. Speaking of the single and forthcoming album frontman Jacob Glew says “This is an album conceived over weekends and late nights in living rooms and start up studios, we’ve spent every hour we have spare pouring ourselves into these ten songs to make them the best they can possibly be, they’re personal and political, recorded by our friend and fantastic producer Mark Williams and played by us to the best of our ability we want every note and word to sound like we meant them, because we did”.
