Title Fight

@ Metro Theatre, Sydney, 9 September 2011

Title Fight is an American pop-punk/hardcore band from Kingston, Pennsylvania, United States, formed in 2003. Title Fight plays music in the vein of Jawbreaker, Kid Dynamite and Lifetime, taking influence from such pop punk acts as Saves the Day and emo bands Knapsack and Seaweed. They are signed to SideOneDummy Records and have toured the United States with bands such as New Found Glory, Bayside and Senses Fail, also becoming a regular on the hardcore festival circuit playing such fests as This Is Hardcore, United Blood and Sound and Fury.

Title Fight formed in 2003 as a three piece consisting of Jamie Rhoden on guitar and vocals and twin brothers Ned and Ben Russin on bass and drums respectively, playing local shows in Kingston and Wilkes-Barre. The band added Shane Moran on second guitar in 2005 and recorded two demos in 2005 and 2006.

They recorded a split with the Erection Kids in 2007 on FlightPlan Records. Members of the Erections Kids later went on to form Balance and Composure. The band quickly followed up their first release with the Kingston 7" (also on FlightPlan Records) in 2008. Their latest release, The Last Thing You Forget, was recorded in December 2008 at the Getaway Group in Massachusetts with Jay Maas and released in June 2009 on Run for Cover Records. The 7" featured three new songs while the CD release featured all of their releases to date. This was followed by a US tour with New Found Glory. The Kingston EP has also been re-released on Six Feet Under Records.

In 2010, Title Fight was featured on Triple B Record's compilation, America's Hardcore, with a new song entitled "Dreamcatchers". They also did a US tour with Bayside, Senses Fail and Balance and Composure and a tour of Japan with H2O.

On January 19, 2011, Title Fight signed to SideOneDummy Records and announced they had finished recording their debut full-length, produced by Walter Schreifels and engineered by Will Yip at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA. The band will also embark on their first headline tour in 2011 with The Menzingers, Touche Amore, Dead End Path and Shook Ones.

The band will release their new album, Shed, on May 3, 2011. On February 10, they released a new song off Shed for free download entitled 27 and Shed's album artwork. On February 23, SideOneDummy posted pre-orders for a new Title Fight 7" called "Flood of '72".
