Fightstar

London-based post-hardcore outfit Fightstar came to life in the mid-2000s when guitarist/vocalist Charlie Simpson was actually still a member of the U.K. pop trio Busted. Itching to tap more fully into his rock side, a random jam at a party soon turned into Simpson writing and playing songs on the side with guitarist Al Westaway and drummer Omar Abdid. Realizing they needed a bass player to enter the studio, a schoolmate of Westaway's, Dan Haigh, soon joined Fightstar's ranks. Rehearsing and playing as often as Simpson's Busted schedule would allow, things quickly got more serious and it became apparent that a decision regarding the band's future had to be made. Simpson ultimately left Busted -- the group officially called it quits in early 2005 -- and he looked eagerly ahead to life with Fightstar. The guys began making a name for themselves around England, both playing the Reading and Leeds Festival and releasing their Island debut EP, They Liked You Better When You Were Dead, in summer 2005. Signing with U.S.-based indie Deep Elm in September, the label re-released their EP stateside the following April as their full-length, Grand Unification, dropped back at home. The album, produced by Colin Richardson (Funeral for a Friend, Machine Head), expanded on their prior effort while exploring darker themes. Fightstar supported Funeral for a Friend that spring and early summer in Australia and the U.K. A slot at the 2006 Download Festival followed in June, as the guys raised some controversy when their video for the single "Paint Your Target" got banned in the U.K. and U.S. for depicting schoolchildren engaged in a fake war. Regardless, Fightstar pressed on and signed to Trustkill Records in early 2007 with plans to release Grand Unification in North America that spring. ~ Corey Apar, Rovi

They really need the other albums in the selected discography. One Day Son, This will All Be Yours 2007. That album is probably their best, or at least my favourite.
This barely touches on the fact that their song floods was used for a motion picture, they were on the resident evil soundtracks, they released 2 ep's and several singles with special content. Also Fightstar was one of (if not the) first band to release a cd with a VINYAL B SIDE. Also, they did several tribute/ covers inculding. Battlefield by jordan sparks, kill switch and imogene heap.
How about adding their 2009 album? Amazon doesn't offer samples for that one either. Buying "Grand Unification" though... sounds like good stuff.

I like their song "Deathcar". It's not on Grand Unification, however.

Pandora finally throws a dog a bone. Great band.
This band is extremely talented, they seem to be able to explore many different aspects of their genre. The only problem I have is the simple fact that alot of people who claim their grounds in the Rock industry will not give full credit to the ability of this very talented group due to the fact that their lead singer was apart of mainstream pop-culture. His ability to explore and participate in all aspects of the music industry is testament to his exceptional talent. -RB
This band is seriously talented. I absolutely love them because they have odd melodies that sound really good. They are seriously awesome!
They've come out with two more albums since Grand Unification. Check out "floods".
this band definitely dropped a surprise on me. woo.
they are okay I like the song here again.
Great group. If you have not checked out any of their albums I would highly recommend that you do.
