Kingston, Pennsylvania’s Title Fight released a newyesterday for the song “Rose of Sharon” (seen in the player above), which comes by way of the band’s forthcoming third album, Hyperview, due out February 3rd, via Anti-.
Post-/alt rock/punk like Title Fight isn’t something we normally cover, but since “Rose for Sharon” really strikes me as something The Replacements, early REM, or Hüsker Dü could have done, I really wanted to share this with anyone who appreciates those bands as I do. And although what Title Fight does her is considerably softer, it has its roots in the things we know and love at .
It’s being said that Title Fight has changed their sound on Hyperview, and there are many long-time fans who are unhappy about it. We’d be interested in hearing your thoughts on the change or, if this is your first experience with the band, what you think of it. Drop your brain in the comments section below.
Title Fight has announced plans to embark on a headlining tour. Merchandise and Power Trip will join as support for the first leg of the tour, March 6th – March 16th. On the second leg, March 21st – April 5th, Title Fight and La Dispute will co-headline with The Hotelier as support. Tickets are on sale now.
