Title Fight announce details of new album

Music News | Feb 11th, 2011

SideOneDummy are proud to have Kingston, Pennyslvania’s Title Fight as the newest addition to the label’s roster. After a handful of singles and EPs on small indie labels the group will be dropping their debut full-length Shed on May 3rd. “We’ve been a band for seven years and this is the first time we have a recording that’s longer than seven minutes so this is a long time coming,” explains bassist/vocalist Ned Russin.

Produced by Gorilla Biscuits/Quicksand songwriter Walter Schreifels, Shed sees the band showing their love of melodic hardcore acts like Lifetime but placing them in a new context that makes these twelve energetic anthems instant classics. “We wrote the last record when we were in high school since then we’ve dropped out of school, seen the world and had life experiences that are all reflected here,” Russin explains when asked what it’s been like to sacrifice everything over the past year and tour alongside acts like H20 and New Found Glory.

From the Hot Water Music-esque power of “27” to the old-school feel of “You Can’t Say Kingston Doesn’t Love You,” Shed is also a remarkably varied record that proves hardcore doesn’t need to be formulaic in order to be accepted. “The most important thing is that this is a Title Fight record,” Russin summarizes,” we’re not trying to pose and be anything we’re not.”

Title Fight are also giving away a free MP3 of “27” from Shed on their Tumblr. The band has also posted the track listing, which you can find below!
