Five-piece mid-west rockers Fight The Fade’s debut album Apophysitis will be out on 22nd July via FiXT, and ahead of that is the new single ‘Stratosphere‘.
“‘Stratosphere‘ is sort of a love letter to the rock shows I grew up going to,” said the band’s spokesperson. “It’s about just getting lost in the music and the moment, and having fun with the people around you.”
Apophysitis is said to feature 14 ultra-catchy tracks including a turbulent ‘Cut & Run’, defiant ‘Matter Of Time’, emotionally riff-heavy ‘Composure’, and a savage ‘Buried’, and a one-stop shop for the signature heavy-hitting edge that fans love about the band.
Already establishing themselves as a powerful alternative/modern rock force with over 275,000 monthly Spotify listeners, Fight The Fade currently reach over 350,000 monthly listeners across multiple streaming platforms, with ‘Cut & Run’ rapidly set to pass 2 million streams on Spotify alone.
Known for pulling together influences from rock, metal, and electronic music, Fight the Fade has forged a sonic identity that wraps heartfelt lyrical themes within a robust production style and delivers them with nuanced and diverse writing approaches. The band’s work ethic and innovative blend of genres led them to an album deal with independent electronic rock label FiXT in late 2020, with Fight the Fade releasing singles throughout 2021, leading to the full-length album Apophysitis that will drop in 2022.

Previously, the band released the single ‘Lost It All‘ – The song feature’s the band’s signature alternative metal sound infused with thoughtful lyrics, and encouraging self-reflection. It is a song about learning to live with the consequences of our decisions – no matter how hard that is.
“Lost It All is an anthem for anyone who feels like it’s time to cut ties and maybe even intentionally burn some bridges with toxic people, habits, relationships, or even traits within yourself,” stated Fight the Fade. “Sometimes for something healthy to grow, it requires a little pruning. This song is about making the decision to do just that.”
The bands previous single was ‘Revival‘ and the band said it was “A song about rediscovery and realising you still have worth. It’s easy to feel chewed up and spit out by this world,” adding, “This song hopefully serves as a sort of wake up call that no matter how beat up you find yourself, today is a new day. You can take back your life, and you can be revived.”‘Revival‘ can be obtained here.
Before that was ‘On My Own’ and the band said: “‘On My Own’ is for anyone who’s tired of putting themselves out there just to get burned,” adding, “Everyone deserves a second chance, but there are times where it’s okay to walk away and be on your own.“
Previous to that was an alternative metal single ‘Where You Go I Go’ that is still also available on all digital platforms, and you can also check out the video for all three singles here at RAMzine.
