Fightstar play a special show next month, full press release below:
Fightstar have teamed up with Oxjam and Lowlife for a special oneâ€“off show to celebrate the release of their new single â€œFloodsâ€ (out March 3rd). This intimate performance for a lucky few, will take place at Madame JoJo's in the heart of London's Soho on March 3rd 2008. The event is also commemorating the launch of Lowlifeâ€™s amazing new SS08 clothing range, and all proceeds will go to Oxjam.
â€œFloodsâ€ features on Fightstarâ€™s second album, â€œOne Day Son, This Will All Be Yoursâ€, which they recorded in LA with producer Matt Wallace (Faith No More), and is already being hailed by many as their â€œmost important song to dateâ€. The new single comes on the back of the band releasing â€œDeathcarâ€, which went on to debut at #2 on the UK indie and rock charts. They were also chosen to play on the Kerrang! Tour with Madina Lake and Coheed and Cambria, and are currently playing sell out shows across the UK.
The band wrote the song after seeing â€œAl Goreâ€™s â€œAn Inconvenient Truthâ€. Charlie Simpson said, â€œLike most people I was blissfully unaware of how bad things had become, and I realized that we should all be facing responsibility for the way we behave. It really inspired the whole record, how we treat our planet and our society now, is going to have repercussions in 50 years timeâ€ Joining Fightstar on the night will be 2 more top acts to be confirmed. In addition there is a competition being run by Kerrang and Lowlife for an unsigned band to win the opening slot on the night.
There will also be an unmissable aftershow party during which the band and Lowlife will be teaming up with Gallows, who are coming down after their gig at the 100 Club. Expect a few surprises and band members spinning some of their favourite tunes.
Tickets will go on sale on February 8th and there will be a very, very limited number of gig + aftershow party tickets available.
