Fight in the Fields

If you’re more partial to hip-hop, then Fight in the Fields is a must-see. Primary songwriters Derry Hunley (vocals) and John Haythornewaite (keyboard) created the group out of the skeleton of their previous band, Raoul Duke.

The sextet spent last summer slaving away in Monster Records’ studio working on their self-titled debut EP. It is currently in the process of being mastered and will be released as a free download in early October.

“Through all the years, we’ve been a band that makes rap music, but we’ve never recorded as a band,” said Hunley. “This is the first time that we’ve ever recorded similar to a rock band and went into the studio and did it properly.”

Rifflandia is the best thing that could have happened for Fight in the Fields. They are looking at this year’s festival as the opportunity that they have been waiting for.

“It’s got an air of legitimacy to it,” said Hunley. “People are like, “Oh, you’re in Rifflandia. That means you’re a real band.’”

Fight in the Fields plan to keep doing what they’re best at – being different. They pride themselves on being one of the best live shows in Victoria.

Be sure to check them out at the Upstairs Cabaret, Sept. 26 at 8:30 p.m. - The Martlet
