New single ‘Cameraphones & Choruses’ & summer tour
Brighton quartet Fighting Fiction release their fast paced, thought provoking new single ‘Cameraphones & Choruses’ through Xtra Mile Recordings on 30th July 2012 featuring exclusive B-side ‘Done up to the Nines’.
Having just won over an army of new fans with their performance at The Great Escape festival Fighting Fiction are now ready to release the next single to be taken from their Mark Williams (Oceansize, Million Dead, Yourcodenameis:milo, Biffy Clyro & Enter Shikari) produced debut album which was met with high praise from the press when released earlier this year.
Speaking of the band’s debut Kerrang! magazine said it’s a “striking and stirring debut from sussex-based punks” (4K’s). While Big Cheese felt that Fighting Fiction are a “rock band that proves that the DIY rock scene is in safe hands” (4/5) with Rock Sound also praising their debut record saying it was “Layered with pop sensibilities and an undertone hinting at eclectic tastes, the self-titled full-length has a personal touch that is, above all, refreshing” (8/10).
The bands keen approach to touring has seen them play alongside Frank Turner, This Town Needs Guns, The Riot Before, The Xcerts, Laura Marling and Crazy Arm; as well as festival appearances at The Lock Up Stage at Reading and Leeds Festival, The Isle of Man TT, The Isle of Wight and 2000Trees.
