Earlier this summer Fighting Fiction revealed the first single from their Mark Williams (Biffy Clyro, Bloc Party, Million Dead, Oceansize) produced debut album. ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll is Dead and its Corpse is for Sale’ gained plays on Radio 1 and rave reviews in specialist music press thanks to its thought provoking lyrics and catchy refrains. Speaking of the single and forthcoming album frontman Jacob Glew says “This is an album conceived over weekends and late nights in living rooms and start up studios, we’ve spent every hour we have spare pouring ourselves into these ten songs to make them the best they can possibly be, they’re personal and political, recorded by our friend and fantastic producer Mark Williams and played by us to the best of our ability we want every note and word to sound like we meant them, because we did”.
