A couple of week’s ago we brought you the gloriously impressive mid-’80s post-punk track, “Rose of Sharon,” from Title Fight‘s new album, Hyperview. The album has a February 3rd street date, but you can stream it right now in its entirety over at NPR.org.
Title Fight is a four-piece from Kingston, Pennsylvania, and formed in 2003 while its members (bassist/vocalist Ned Russin, guitarist/vocalist Jamie Rhoden, guitarist Shane Moran, and drummer Ben Russin) were in middle school. Previous releases from Title Fight are their first full-length Shed (2011), Floral Green (2012), and Spring Songs EP (2013).
Hyperview was produced by Will Yip and it represents the highest heights of artistry yet reached by the band. Dreamy guitars weigh heavy and carry the meaning of the songs, while hazy vocals make the album feel like the soundtrack to a gorgeous dream. Longtime fans of Title Fight will appreciate the band’s previous releases as a natural development into their newer sound. But first time listeners can just as easily get wonderfully lost in the music all the same.
Title Fight will embark on a headlining tour this year. Merchandise and Power Trip will join as support for the first leg of the tour, March 6th-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.
