After releasing a handful of EPs and 7-inches as well as performing shows all over the world,
Title Fight began attracting attention from fans and labels who were captivated by the way
the band managed to put a modern spin on the melodic hardcore sound pioneered by acts
like Gorilla Biscuits and Lifetime - and in 2010 the members of Title Fight dropped out of
college in order to tour full-time with acts such as New Found Glory, Four Year Strong and
H20. It was also around this time that the band entered the studio with Gorilla Biscuits/
Quicksand guitarist Walter Schreifels who agreed to produce the band and promptly drove
down to Northeastern Pennsylvania to help them prepare to record their highly anticipated
full-length debut Shed.
From there the band headed to Philadelphia to record Shed over a grueling two-week period
at the legendary Studio 4. However all those long nights paid off as Shed sees the band implementing
various subgenres that range from old-school hardcore to aggressive punk rock
that make these twelve energetic anthems instant classics for a new generation of listeners
searching for music that inspires them as much as Title Fight were inspired by their heroes.
“We’ve been a band for seven years and this is the first time we’ve had a recording that’s
longer than seven minutes long,” says Ned Russin. “The last year has been a crazy ride but
the whole time we’ve always stayed true to the fact that we’re not trying to be anything
we’re not,” he summarizes. “We’re four friends that play in a band together and we would
still be doing this whether we were playing to five people or five hundred of them.”

Awesome album! Fans of bands like Lifetime, Jawbreaker, Texas is the Reason, and Kid Dynamite should check this one out. Some great melodic hardcore with a bit of a 90s emo touch!

this album was awesome. I still think the collection cd before this was better,but that's really hard to beat. Every time I see them I have a great time and glad they are getting more popular because they definitely deserve it. If you like Lifetime or old Saves The Day you will dig this a lot. The vocals are a bit more hardcore but its got a lot of hooks and sing a long choruses. Transit, Wonder Years fans will eat this up too.
