Fightstar to release new single “A City On Fire”

More Music Releases

Out 21st December 2009 through Search & Destroy Records

After a summer full of festival appearances including Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Download, Reading & Leeds and T4 OnThe Beach, Fightstar returned to the studio to record 5 new tracks with producer Carl Bown.   One of those tracks ‘A City On Fire’ is due to be released as a single on Monday 21st December 2009 on Search and Destroy Records through PIAS as a digital download only.
 
The digital bundle consists of  ‘A City on Fire’ radio version, an instrumental version and a Frankmusik remix.  There is also a fantastic version of Don McLean’s “Vincent”.
 
Previous singles ‘The English Way’, ‘Never Change’ and ‘Mercury Summer’ have already connected with fans old and new across the country, pushing Fightstar’s MySpace song plays to over 3 million and the No 1 spot on the MTV2 MySpace video chart, whilst the band’s intimate cover of Jordin Spark’s ‘Battlefield’ won over Radio 1 listeners on Jo Wiley’s Live Lounge.
 
“’A City On Fire’ highlights the rat race that tends to surround daily life in London town,” explains singer Charlie Simpson. “It also touches on the dramatic big brother tendencies that have been increasingly encroaching on our privacy- on an average day in London you will be filmed by over 300 CCTV cameras! This song has both positive and negative messages. I have lived in London for almost ten years now and I think it is a truly inspiring city, though at times its relentless nature can become overwhelming.”
 
Before heading out on their biggest ever U.K. headline tour at the end of the month, Fightstar spent the day at XFM recording tracks for Steve Harris ‘An Evening With...’. The tour will cover 12 shows over three weeks, including a sold out homecoming show at Shepherds Bush Empire, and a trip over to Ireland to play Belfast and Dublin.
