Artist/Band Information

Throw the Fight is an American alternative rock band originating from Minneapolis, Minnesota.

History

The Fire Within

Throw the Fight started out as a five-piece group in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The band recorded several demos and an eponymous three song EP with lead vocalist Brandon Kyllo. Years later, Paul Kreuger replaced Brandon as the band's vocalist and, collaboratively, the group began writing and recording their next EP, The Fire Within. While still recording their EP, which consisted of four tracks, Throw the Fight was voted as one of the Top Ten Unsigned Bands in the country by Alternative Press in 2006. Shortly after, Throw the Fight signed with Cordless Recordings - a digital label that is part of the Warner Music Group. With the widespread attention provided by the article and after garnering a larger fanbase, the band collectively decided to begin touring in support of the newly recorded EP. After a year and a half of touring, a lineup change occurred as James Clark replaced Paul who provided vocals for the band. Though previously a fundamentally sound musical group, Throw the Fight believed James fit in perfectly with the band's overall style and his sound better reflected the desired tone of the band. The new front man provided a new sound for the band, one that attracted Minnesota producer Matt Kirkwold.

In Pursuit of Tomorrow

With moderate mainstream acclaim from the EP, Throw the Fight continued to write and record songs for their first album. Receiving mostly positive reviews, In Pursuit of Tomorrow carried musical range from intense, screaming guitar melodies to classic metal to melancholy tones. Throw the Fight, mainly concerned with their impression on their following, felt they had to stay true to their fan base with their first true album. Attributing their success mainly to a particular "X Factor" unseen in other acts, they have also admitted that unity and teamwork within the band have aided in their accomplishments. They are currently in the studio writing and tracking new material for their second album.

New demo material - 2010

The band is currently unsigned and recording / shopping new demo material for their third release while touring full time. They released their new single, Bloodshot Eyes, on July 20th, 2010. The song can be heard online and is available digitally through Itunes, Amazon Mp3, Shockhound, Emusic and more.

Touring and Album Sales

As a group, Throw the Fight toured across the United States independently before joining a major tour circuit. Throw the Fight then became a part of the Warped Tour 2007 and performed July 13-22. The band also participated in the Taste of Chaos Tour 2008, namely the St. Paul stop of the tour, which took place on March 4. Throw the Fight is currently touring alongside Drowning Pool in full support of their album In Pursuit of Tomorrow. The band has toured and shared stages with other national acts such as Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Staind, Chevelle, Lost Prophets, A Change of Pace, among many others.

On June 7, 2009, group vocalist James Clark was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Several tour dates were canceled while James was undergoing treatment. He has since made a full recovery.

Most recently, Throw the Fight toured the Midwest and East Coast with Metal Blade Records artist, Across the Sun from July 23 to August 15, 2010.

Currently, the band has toured in over 30 states and sold 33,000 albums and digital singles collectively.
