Fight Amp To Disband After “Final Amp” Tour Dates

After a 12-year run, Philadelphia rockers Fight Amp will officially disband following an upcoming North American tour in November.

Now dubbed “Final Amp,” the November tour hits eight cities across the northeastern US and Canada, ending in Brooklyn, New York for a final show. The band gives this statement:

“Well, here it is. As of today we’re officially announcing that our November shows will be our last. Fight Amp is going on indefinite hiatus.

“It’s been a long strange, wild, educational, fun and sometimes painful journey, and this is not a decision we made lightly or quickly. It may come as a surprise to a lot of you, but the three of us have been chewing on this for a while. The timing just seems right at this point. We’re leaving on a high note with the release of our favorite Fight Amp record to date, Constantly Off, as our farewell album.

“We can’t thank you all enough for riding this thing through with us. There’s enough stories, gratitude, lessons and history embedded in this band at this point that we could write a book on the topic. Instead of a long-winded statement here we’ll let those things come out as time passes. Without going into too much further detail, we’re making this move to focus on other musical projects. We’re lifers in this thing and we’re not going anywhere as musicians, so stay tuned for what’s to come. As far as the new material we had written and started to demo, we’ll let that sleep for now.

“It’s been real, people. Thank you all so much for the continued support and we hope to see you in November to see Fight Amp one last time.”

Ruled By Reason Posts “Ascension” Music Video

Cleveland, OH outfit Ruled By Reason has released a new video clip for the song “Ascension,” which can be seen below. The band also comments:

“Here it is, folks! We’ve never put out a music video in the 5 1/2 years that we’ve been a band, so needless to say, this is a big moment for us.

“We put tons of work into making a killer video that should have you laughing, crying and/or maybe even peeing your pants a little bit. Watch this, then watch it several more times, then share it with your friends, your grandmother and then a random stranger. Either way, pass this thing around like it’s your job and help us make a big splash in the video world!”
