Kingston PA’s Title Fight have become regulars here at Blow The Scene with their infectious blend of hardcore and pop punk that saw a whirlwind year for the band in 2011. Still riding off of the success of their first full-length LP Shed, produced by Walter Schreifels (of Gorilla Biscuits/Quicksand/Rival Schools) with a #8 debut on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart last year, Title Fight were joined last Saturday by Pianos Become the Teeth, Self Defense Family, and Halfling for a raucous hometown crowd at Wilkes-Barre’s Redwood Art Space.
We recently caught up with Title Fight for a sit down interview during their Alternative Press Tour 2011 with Gallows and Four Year Strong. April is looking like another big month for Title Fight as they have a slew of dates with scene mainstays Rise Against on US soil.
Co-headliners, Pianos Become the Teeth have also been riding a wave of momentum surrounded by the release of their latest album The Lack Long After, which hit streets via Topshelf Records last November. The band leaves for a Northeast Tour with Xerxes today before joining Converge for a handful of dates in March
Saturday’s bill was rounded out by Self Defense Family (formerly End of a Year and End of a Year Self Defense Family) and Halfling, as the incredibly talented Anne Spina of Anne Spina Photography was on hand to capture the show in pictures for your viewing pleasure. Special shout out to Brian and Shane for looking out for our photographer!
Without further ado..
