Shortly after this they picked up guitarist Taylor Young, the drummer for One Round Left, who quickly got to work writing three songs in short order. This was before Fight Everyone had even practiced. Once the band got some momentum, everything fell into place. Logan Whitmer (Zacks brother) was brought in to handle sampling duties, Brandon Baker was enlisted to play bass and they rounded out the lineup with second guitarist Wes Daggett.
Fight Everyone played to 150 people at their first show (selling $700 in merchandise) and since then they haven't looked back. Mixing influences like Earth Crisis, Buried Alive and Merauder, Fight Everyone combines very hard driving sounds with a tip of the hat to various styles of hardcore. The band has already shared the stage with such hardcore acts as: The Warriors, Death By Stereo, Ramallah and a host of others. With a new bass player, the future for Fight Everyone keeps getting brighter as they recently signed with New Age Records to release a 5 song EP.
"The label has been reinvigorated over the past few years and Fight Everyone are a perfect fit for that," stated label founder and owner, Mike Hartsfield. "Very few bands that come my way remind me why I started this label back in 1988. Fight Everyone, from the moment I heard them, made me realize why I still do it." Fight Everyones debut EP will be avilable in Fall 2006. Read more on Last.fm.
