Fights And Fires - Up, Down, Labour, Conservative, A, B, Start

  Their most recent release is an ep titled Future Plans And The Things That Ruin Them. It's pitched as an ep of hope and finding a better way. It features 5 tracks of melodic hardcore on subjects such as losing your job, struggling to carry on when you're down & stuck in a rut and the difficulties of starting over. They seem to be a band who cope with the harsh realities of everyday life by getting their thoughts out in their lyrics. You can find the ep here :

  This is my favourite track, it's about a failed system and history repeating itself. It's a band telling us that even though we've been failed, don't fail ourselves. It's one of those tracks that you want to listen closely to the lyrics. It's also got a great title. It's called Up, Down, Labour, Conservative, A, B, Start...
