Label: Run For Cover Records The band's earliest stuff is straight out of the melodic hardcore handbook, owing much debt to East Coast bands like Lifetime, the Movielife, and early Saves the Day, so much so that listening to Title Fight can easily whip listeners back to when they were discovering those bands for the first time. Title Fight play fast and tough, never afraid to lay emotion on the table amid all the sweat and singalongs, yet always retaining that melodic edge, especially thanks to the engaging vocal dueling of guitarist Jamie Rhoden and bassist Ned Russin. The tracks are an interesting development, and it's probably safe to assume it's a path they'll keep going down. Title Fight seems freer and more comfortable in the poppier punk range -- growing pains that time will surely iron out. Their energy, though, keeps things interesting even if the sound is less than inventive, and the album as a whole shows great potential. It is one hell of a debut for Title Fight, and it’s already showing. It is a gem. Buy it, download it, do whatever you have to, listen to Title Fight at least once.
