From the second the inimitable growl of Fit For Rivals' Renee Phoenix knocks you off your feet, you know: there is something special here. Indeed, in the time since the band self-released their debut album, Steady Damage, they've amassed a rabid fan base, touring with notable acts such as Flyleaf, Hoobastank, Candlebox, and Framing Hanley, playing audiences in the thousands nationwide and collecting over 25 million YouTube views on their videos such as "Damage." Based in Jacksonville, FL., Fit For Rivals fan base expands domestically and internationally.
After the rapid ascent brought on by the success of Steady Damage, Fit For Rivals headed back into the studio with producer Gavin Brown (Metric, Lady Gaga, Billy Talent) to record their second full-length album, Freak Machine, to be released in 2015 on Big3 Records. The new record calls upon influences as varied as The Zombies, Massive Attack, Beck and the Foo Fighters, and builds upon the foundation laid with Steady Damage to showcase a natural evolution of a band destined for notoriety.
