Formed in 2004, Fighting Chance is finally starting to get rolling with
some well deserved recognition and praise. This Rock/Reggae/Punk outfit
started out San Luis Obispo,CA playing coffee shops for friends as a duo and
has evolved into a 5 piece juggernaut. With over 500 shows, and coutless
tours undertheir belt, their latest release " A Lifetime of Basic Cable"
is the work of experience. The album covers almost all of their struggle including
women, temptation, battling addiction, hope, loss, and knowing the music
can never stop, no matter what the circumstances.
"Music is in our blood, it's in everybody. We just want to wake that
excitement and love where it may lie dormant".- Fighting Chance
2008 generated a huge spike in popularity for Fighting Chance
with their single "Falling In" reaching number nine on the New
Rock 107.3(San Luis Obispo) charts for three months from July through September
alongside BAD RELIGION, WEEZER, AND FLOBOTS. Their current material
consistently reaches radio playlists on Rock stations in Bakersfield,
Los Angeles, San Diego, Fresno, and throughout the Inland Empire.
Here's what the strangers say:
SURE TO START A FIRE UNDER A CROWDS COLLECTIVE ASS
G. Starkey New Times Magazine
"ONCE YOUVE HEARD A FIGHTING CHANCE SONG, YOULL WANT
TO HEAR ANOTHER, ONCE YOUVE SEEN A FIGHTING CHANCE SHOW,
YOULL NEED TO SEE ANOTHER. NO ONE CAN DENY THE GUT WRENCHING
HONESTY OF THEIR LYRICS ". Sam-Las Cruces Sun News (Carlsbad, New Mexico)
Fighting Chance renews the worship of Sublime, the real touring band.
Ignoring the trust-fund-kid world of The Strokes, Fighting Chance cooks
beans in the back of their van while touring the shit out of their amazing,
dub-and-reggae-and-rock-and-alternative-inspired music. They rock everything
from house parties to packed clubs and always have a good time rocking the
hell out of everyone who crosses their paths. -BANDWEB.COM
