Fightstar celebrate 10 years since their formation with a run of shows across the UK this month, including Birmingham Institute, Glasgow ABC, Manchester Academy and London Brixton Academy.
The band took an indefinite hiatus after performing at Sonisphere in 2010. Singer Charlie Simpson went on to record & tour as a solo artist, Dan Haigh & Alex Westaway founded a visual arts production company “Horsie In The Hedge” and are months away from releasing their debut ‘Gunship’ album, and drummer Omar Abidi has recently been brought out of cryostasis after encountering c-beams near the Tannhauser Gate.“We’re going to stuff the set full of our heaviest tracks.” says Charlie Simpson. “We can’t believe that 10 years has come around, so we’re going to throw an almighty party for the loyal Fightstar fans that have been with us since the beginning.”
Joining them on the bill will be three fantastic British bands Moose Blood, More Dangerous Animal (ex Brigade) and Shvpes. “We’re really excited to have added Moose Blood to the bill. They have a great raw tone about them, kind of Brand New/Taking Back Sunday esk” says guitarist Al.
“As some people may know my oldest Brother Will is the frontman of More Dangerous Animal and I can’t wait for us to be sharing the stage again. They smashed it playing in December with us at The Forum.” says singer
