about

Philadelphia, PA's noise rock power trio FIGHT AMPUTATION (also known as FIGHT AMP) return with their heaviest and most mature material to date. Their first new recordings in over three years, the new album Constantly Off is a thunderously heavy blend of grunge, sludge and punk. Recorded by Steve Poponi (Into It. Over It., Ladder Devils), FIGHT AMP have perfected their signature sound on Constantly Off, kicking up the riffs and locking in the rhythms with the addition of more focused, melodic vocals. Fans of early Melvins, Nirvana and Eyehategod take note.

"Constantly Off is constantly hitting the mark."
- skullsnbones.com ( 5 / 5 )

"Constantly Off just knocked me on my ass. The Philly-based band has come out swinging on its most recent album, likely to surprise more than just my set of ears. Constantly Off might be the opposite way I’d describe the album, as every song on this short (but very sweet) six-track record is a winner."
- newnoisemagazine.com (4 / 5 )

"The irony of Fight Amp’s new album Constantly Off is that it is pretty much constantly ON, save for a few well-placed reprieves that begin songs which quickly kick into high gear. These moments feel like slingshots being slyly pulled back, and it’s a testament to the group’s attention to detail and dynamics that we are treated to a peaks-and-valleys sense of contrast which only amplifys the baddassery of the songs."
- www.metalsucks.net (4 / 5)

"No maniacal drum nuance, deep bass crevasse or thunderously detuned riff escapes inspection. Thus empowered, vocalist-guitarist Mike McGinnis and his shock troops proceed to crank out delirious sludge-punk anthems..."
- www.revolvermag.com

"Beneath a hard crust of booming toms and slippery Unsane-esque rhythms lies an efficient, borderline-pop songwriting sensibility that reminds me a bit of Torche’s early work."
- www.stereogum.com

"...fierce noise rock peppered with hardcore. Think Torche or Helms Alee or the like, but you'll also think it's fucking good."

about

Fight Amp Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

FIGHT AMPUTATION is a heavy, grungy, hardcore punk crossed with sludge rock trio from the seedy underbelly of Philadelphia's thriving noise rock scene.
Drawing influence from Dead Kennedys, Cherubs, all things AmRep, His Hero Is Gone, Eyehategod, skateboarding, and foreclosed suburban ghost towns, FIGHT AMP has crafted a sound similar to early Melvins being molested by Queens of the Stone Age.

Track Name: Ex Everything
I will be your victim
Make me, make me
Make me want to confess
That I'm just like the rest
In the waiting room
Should've been the same for you
The past is plastic
The past is plastic
Feet off the floor innocence
Lead fed, ego dead
I remember being jealous
First and most I remember
I will be your victim
Track Name: Survival Is Strange
Today I said only pleasant things
Smiled at strangers
And they'd give one back to me
Confessed a love
That was only for myself
Now I feel guilty
Guilty
Guilty
Today my face beamed
And betrayed how I felt
Didn't envy
Didn't wish for something else
Said what I meant
In a less than passive way
Convinced myself
That blind confidence would help
Still I feel guilty
Guilty
Guilty
With my nails unkempt and frail
I carve my name
And claim what no one else will
Silence
Silence
Time is long and lonely
When you realize
Survival means marching
To the sound of a prosthetic heart
Track Name: Leveling In A Dream
So tired of waking up
There's no such thing as me
So sure of it now
Yea, the truth is plain enough
There never was a me
So obvious now
Every look that I take
Will take a layer of skin
And every hand that I shake
Will come away looking red
So tired of waking up
This isn't a dream
There's no question now
Track Name: You Don't Wanna Live Forever
Your notion of consolation
Is bankrupt
Heaven and hell
Are just as well
No solace there
Without a clock to run out
I'm so glad you can't have your wish
'cause you don't know what it means
Life without death
Is not a gift
I'm so glad you can't have your wish
Paradise not lost
Paradise not lost
Paradise lost was just never found
Track Name: I Perceive Reptoids
Always turn on your TV
You think you'll have a good life
Your strings get pulled and pulled in primetime
Tune in and dream a good life
When there's nothing on
When there's nothing on
I still can't look away
My screen is empty
My screen is empty
I still can't look away
Feed me
Feed me anything
I'll spit it out and swallow it again
My strings get pulled in primetime
I'll spit it out and swallow it again
Track Name: Happy Joyful Life
Isn't life so good?
Watch the legitimates
On their dad's shoulders
The patient earn a view
Of the costumed salesmen
Selling off their curse
Isn't he so good
To wait so patiently
For an empty plate
More has been done with less
And it wrecks my stomach
Embarrassed, ashamed
Flailing and failing
Limbo is en vogue
And my dreams have a ceiling
But no common home
I'm a bitter mess
I'm a small human
Now is the time to runaway
The tide is reckless
The heat is relentless
And the streets are endless
