THROW THE FIGHT are back. The band will release its new album ‘TRANSMISSIONS’ on April 8, 2016. The band worked with producers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland, whose credits include August Burns Red, Texas In July, Everclear, Affiance, Live, and more.
Of the track, vocalist James Clark said, “The song is about realizing you are trapped in a relationship that isn’t going anywhere and you’re just going through the motions. It’s about you both knowing it’s over and that it’s not going to end well, but it’s easier to stay trapped and unhappy than move on into the unknown.”
‘TRANSMISSIONS’ is the follow-up to ‘What Doesn’t Kill Us’, which was produced by John Feldmann (Atreyu, The Used). That album has impressively sold 10,000 copies worldwide since release and landed on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. THROW THE FIGHT followed the album with the 2013-released The Vault EP, which also landed on Billboard’s Heatseekers and Alternative New Artist charts.
“We wanted to return when we had that fire going again. We demoed over 25 songs for this record in four months,” said guitarist Ryan Baustert. “It ended up being the largest body of material we’ve ever had to work with for an album. This is by far the heaviest, most exciting group of THROW THE FIGHT songs we’ve done. This is it. This is the best of the best.”
Since arriving on the scene, THROW THE FIGHT, who are based in Minneapolis, have toured nationally, logging dates with Bullet For My Valentine, Black Veil Brides, Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, Sevendust, and more. They also secured slots on festivals such as The Vans Warped Tour & Taste of Chaos.
THROW THE FIGHT look to spend much of 2016 on the road and are kicking off the ‘TRANSMISSIONS’ album cycle with a handful of headlining shows and a run of dates with multi-platinum rock band Trapt.
