Bullet Tooth Records are proud to announce the worldwide signing of Minneapolis, Minnesota's, Throw The Fight. For the past three decades, Minneapolis has had it's finger on the pulse of the musical world. There's something about the Northern Midwest crowds that demand passion and
energy from their musical acts. Throw The Fight continues that tradition, bringing an authentic display of metal-edged, hard rock. It's the kind of energy one hears on the band's newest album, the John Feldmann (Atreyu, The Used) produced, What Doesn't Kill Us.
Months after initial talks with the band, Bullet Tooth president Josh Grabelle flew out to Minneapolis to see the band play in their element. "I watched Throw The Fight play at First Ave in front of 1000+ hungry music fans and they tore the roof off the place. They were exactly what I had hoped they would be and reminded me of a young Bullet For My Valentine. These guys are stars."
"We're really excited to be working with Josh Grabelle and Bullet Tooth. Our new record has been a long time coming and it feels good to be partnering with a label that understands whatwe're trying to accomplish. Josh has a great track record of breaking bands," commentedguitarist Ryan Baustert.
Recorded during a three week stretch in Feldmann's own Los Angeles studio, "What Doesn't Kill Us" runs the gamut, stretching across metal and alternative, to just plain-old, white-knuckled rock 'n' roll. Serving to example is the blinding intensity behind tracks like "One Step Away," "Lifesaver" and "Lights Out For Summer," which are imbued with soulful, intelligent songwriting to accompany TTF's brand of angst-ridden fervor.
"Rock and roll is everything . . . To us, there's nothing else," proclaims guitarist Ryan Baustert. It's that same all-in, do-it-yourself attitude that pours from TTF's essence; an ever-present force that drives exceptional live performance, fantastic studio work, and an ineffable mass appeal. Throw The Fight's onstage force has already been seen nationally on festivals such as The Vans Warped Tour & Taste of Chaos, and with Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, Sevendust, Drowning Pool, Buckcherry, Staind, Chevelle, among others.
Members James Clark (vocals), Ryan Baustert (guitar), Jonathan Sutton (guitar/back-up vocals), Kyle Glidden (bass/back-up vocals), and Jeff Baustert (drums) are headed somewhere fast and What Doesn't Kill Us is a standing testament to the band's resilience.
