Fights & Fires
Since their formation in 2008, Fights And Fires have released three albums, an EP, two split releases and a handful of singles, resulting in the band selling over 6,000 copies of physical music – A fantastic achievement in this streaming age for a DIY punk rock band.
F&F wear their hearts on their sleeves – never ones to put scene credentials before honesty. They’re not ashamed to say that Status Quo and Thin Lizzy, as well as bands like The Bronx and Rocket From The Crypt, had an imprint on the Fights And Fires sound.
“We’ve had a change of heart,” says drummer Lee Jackson “We got to a point where we were sick of being in a band. We became naively wrapped up in this vision of ‘trying to make it a success’ and we were actually overlooking the important part, which is to make sure you’re having fun.”
Fights And Fires are a band that pride themselves on having fun and truly enjoying themselves, whilst delivering, chaotic and passionate, rock-and-roll-inspired hardcore shows.
After turning their focus to touring mainland Europe, the band have built a solid underground fanbase throughout the continent, and their sheer persistence has seen the band cross the English channel over 50 times, with no plans to slow up just yet.
This summer and autumn will see the band hit the road once again throughout mainland Europe. An extensive Germany tour is announced for July, with dates throughout France scheduled for September. The band are also scheduling select UK dates throughout the Autumn – Details TBA soon.
The sauce see’s the band team up with Gloucester-based independent hot sauce company, Tubby Toms. A QR code on the side of the jalapeno and lime flavoured ‘Essential Kebab Accompaniment’ will take you directly to the tracks – Providing you with the perfect soundtrack for devouring your favourite meal, whether it comes in a pita, flatbread or wrap.
