Fight Amp released their amazing album Birth Control in 2012 and the band has just unveiled the music video for the track “Fly Trap.” This video is… Strange. Well, that’s one way to put it. Another is to say that it’s… Well, I’ll leave that for you to decide. It’s equal parts animation and live footage and it’s a fantastic song, so check out the video after the jump. Radness.

After being teased by five chaotic tracks, KEN Mode are finally streaming their new record Entrench over at Pitchfork. Jesus H. Christ! This album is as vicious as I hoped it would be. Frontman Jesse Matthewson had this to add on the new album:
This is KEN mode’s statement: we are coming for you. ‘Entrench’ is our message, and we will not stop until it is jammed down everyone’s throats. This album is the most aggressive, catchy, and dynamic work we’ve ever done, and we refuse to quit or take prisoners. We’ll be on the road from now until the beginning of June straight supporting ‘Entrench’, blanketing North America and Europe with venomous hostility
The album will be officially released on March 19th. Be sure to check out the band with Today is the Day, Fight Amp and Black Tusk on the road this month! Dates are provided below.
Today is the Day have booked an extensive Spring North American touring schedule that will mark the band’s twentieth year anniversary. Support on this trek will come from Black Tusk, KEN Mode, Fight Amp and a yet to be announced special guest on certain stops of the tour. You’d be a complete dumbass to miss this. Check out the full schedule below!
Lane posted about the last Fight Amp song premiered off of their forthcoming album Birth Control which will be released on September 25th via Translation Loss. Before I get into the track, I would like to say that this track reminded me of a lot of stupid shit I did when I was younger. Not because of the music, but because of the name of the song: “White Pickett.” When I was in my mid-to-late teens, I was involved in a Jackass-esque project called White Picket Fence in which I did a lot of things that I now regret.
ANYWAY. This isn’t about that. This is about an amazing new Fight Amp song that is streaming over at Metalsucks. Go check it out, because this is sure to be one of the best albums of the year. Enjoy.
Fight Amp have released the groovy, sludgy hardcore “Fly Trap” from their upcoming third album Birth Control, which is out on September 25th via Translation Loss. “Fly Trap” is stuffed to the brim with low end Melvins esque, AmRep nodding riffs and chugging bass lines. I have never paid much attention to this band in the past but now I have to. I look forward to this new album.
Now, if you know me at all you know that I am an art nut. I love intricate and interesting album artwork as well as mind-bending, out-of-this-world band logos. I think an album cover can speak volumes towards the band and the music itself. A strong, powerful album cover can mean life or death for an album. I once submitted a post to Operation Grindcore in which I explained my love for four album covers (Coffinworm, Lake Of Blood, Kvelertak and Insect Warfare) and those are all albums that are very important to me.
