Need a post-hardcore fix? Check out Title Fight

With Walter Schreifels continuously looking forward (with Rival Schools and other solo projects) rather than revisiting the past (Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksand), I’m always on the lookout for post-hardcore bands that sound like 1994.

While Schreifels might not be interested in making that kind of music anymore, it’s not stopping him from working with bands that do. The singer recently worked with Pennsylvania’s Title Fight and produced their debut album, Shed, which is a great slice of aggressive guitar work and nearly barked vocals that still maintain a sense of melody.

Title Fight is part of the AP Tour, presented by Alternative Press, kicking off in October where they’ll be playing alongside Four Year Strong, Gallows, The Swellers and Sharks. Pre-sale tickets are available from August 1-5 at http://theaptour.ducatking.com/, and on sale on August 6.
