Fight The Fight take on the A-Z challenge

Our A-Z challenge is a fun way to get to know the many bands and artists out there. Here its the turn of Lars from Fight The Fight to tell us all about the band.

A song that made you want to make music?

This Fire’ by Killswitch Engage.

Best rider you have had?

In my personal opinion, the best rider we ever had was in Bratislava. We got basically anything we wanted! Including, but not limited to, dubious amounts of alcohol and all kinds of food.

Craziest moment in the band?

I got thrown out of a festival the day before we were supposed to play, and I had to listen to my band play without me. So I went to the next town over and partied for two days and snuck back into the festival at night.

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

This is one of the deeper lyrics on the record. At least from the top of my head, mostly because you can interpret it in different ways.

“Confusion and anger compels me
Is this who I want to be?
Taking the long road just for one ride
It´s time for my resurrection”

Easiest song you wrote?

None were easy. Fast? Yes, but not easy.

Favourite song in your set?

At the moment? ‘Deliverance’ or ‘TurboSex’.

Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?

I don’t know, to be honest. I would like to do a feature with Angus Young, Demi Lovato or Post Malone. Just to see what it would sound like.

Hardest thing about being in a band?

It’s so bloody expensive. Especially in the beginning. You sacrifice a lot to make your dream a reality. But if you keep trying and you do it mostly because you love it, it’s definitely worth it!

Interesting fact about one of your members?

One of us is over 30, can you guess who?

Jokes you have in the band?

We have quite a lot of inside jokes in the band, none of which should be in print.

Key to writing a song?

If you want to write a song, you should start with a theme. If that doesn’t work just start writhing whatever comes to mind. Believe me, the first stuff is almost never good. It is, however, a start.

Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?

I literally don’t know, pretty damn far. I’m the vocalist, got ADHD, don’t have a driver’s licence and do everything on the fly. I just show up where the band needs me to be and we go from there. But I guess maybe from Oslo to Bratislava for one show.

Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?

Rammstein live 100%!

New band you’d recommend?

Fixation from Norway, cool stuff.

Opening for this band would be ideal?

Rammstein or Parkway Drive would be good matches for us, I think. Maybe even Five Finger Death Punch.

Place you’d most like to tour?

We would really like to tour in South America or U.S.A, mostly because we haven’t been there yet.

Quote that you’d like to pass on to our readers?

Burn bright, burn fast! Choose how to live for yourself.

Reason for the title of your forthcoming release?

The reason for the name of the album? It’s our sophomore album, which is where we prove that we deserve to be here. That’s why we named it ‘Deliverance’.

See us live at?

We had at least one live show on the 17th October at Vulkan Arena in Oslo, but COVID ruins a lot of things.

The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?

No, we just hear the good stuff from the old days. Not the bad stuff.

Unusual merchandise?


Variations you’d like to do on one of your songs?

I really like the songs as they are, but I think I would change some of the vocal lines if I were to do it again.

What do your fans mean to you?

As cliché as this is, we would not be able to continue what we do without them. We love them and we’re forever grateful to them. When we meet after shows we usually hang out for quite a bit too. So come say hi!

X-rays or any other treatments needed for band injuries?

Yes, on an ongoing basis. Stage diving, mosh-pits and just playing, have all resulted in injuries.

You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?

If we’re late for a show, it’s Lars Vegas fault, A.K.A me. I probably forgot the arrival time or confused soundcheck with load in.

Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?

Honey-Badger – refuses to give up and damn hard to kill!
