The Fight (from Dudley in the West Midlands) are back in the UK after touring the USA since January, to support US punk band ‘Rancid’.

The Fight met up with Rancid’s lead singer Tim Armstrong whilst performing the Californian leg of the Vans Warped Tour, where he asked them to support Rancid on their tour of the UK.

They will be playing major venues throughout England, Scotland and Ireland, many of which are already sold out.

The tour starts on September 11th at Birmingham Academy, which co-incidently happens to be a year to the day from their gig at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire, when The Fight supported ‘New Found Glory’. Which resulted in The Fight recording in Los Angeles, and releasing an EP ‘Home is where the hate is’ on FatWreckChords, plus extensive tours of the U.S.

‘The Fight’ line-up is – Kate Turley, vocals & guitar, Jak Turley, Drums, Simon (Link) Jeffries, Guitar and Matty V, bass. More info and sample tracks can be found on
