Vancouver band, Fighting for Ithaca will be releasing their new single, Better Off on Thursday, March 6. Is that too long of a wait for you? If so, you’re in luck. Staring yesterday, the song has been on featured on Absolute Punk, as an exclusive first spin! If you aren’t familiar with the band, you should check out their former album, “To The Rescue” on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/to-the-rescue!!/id571039959 and of course, we sure to give the new song a listen. “Better Off” is a bit different than their previous singles, but in my opinion, the band has moved in the right direction. The sound is perfect, and if you listen closely to the lyrics, you can feel the passion behind it, and leaves you wanting more, much more.
The band is also in the midst of their #Supertour with fellow Vancouver band, The Faceplants. If you are interested in seeing these two amazing Canadian bands live, check out these dates:
