The home boys in Fight Amp really hooked us up good with some rigged content. As I mentioned last week, we’ve been freaking over their new record Constantly Off since it dropped (as Kip Wingerschmidt over at our pals MetalSucks said in his review, “more like Constantly On, amiright?”). It’s a short burst, leaving just enough of a tease to get you whet for more. Seriously, this thing is literally just 18 minutes of great riffs, catchy choruses, ear-pleasing production, and grooves.
For example, here’s my favorite track on the thing, “Survival is Strange,” which has one of my favorite choruses on any song released by any band this year:
Anyway, for our second exclusive vid from these guys, bassist Jon DeHart shows us around the band’s practice space, talks rare and vintage gear, and gives us a sneak peak at Power Pills, an in-development, upcoming (trademarked, mind you) collaboration between Fight Amp and Gear Gods. More on that to come.
