The Interrupters

Fight The Good Fight - Hellcat Records

Fight The Good Fight is the third album from LA ska punk band The Interrupters, it takes its title from a piece of graffiti that was spray painted outside the studio where they made their self titled debut album. As ever The Interrupters have kept Rancid‘s Tim Armstrong at the helm, who’s now produced all three of their albums, to ensure Fight The Good Fight stays true to their signature sound. The quartets latest release follows up on their stunning 2015 album Say It Out Loud and it finds The Interrupters delivering their two tone and ska inspired punk soundtrack with more vitality than ever before. 

Title Holder comes out of it’s corner with a perfect opening round of infectious ska punk, the album continues to deliver dance floor filling ska punk with every track keeping true to their two tone roots, especially on the skanking Leap Of Faith. Their punk pedigree comes to the fore on Got Each Other, a track that builds on the Rancid connection as it features vocals from all four members of the band on vocals, and Broken World, a track inspired by a melody passed on by Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong whilst The Interrupters were the main support on much of Green Day‘s Revolution Radio world tour.

Fight The Good Fight continues to blend ska and punk perfectly across the album’s twelve cuts, there isn’t a single moment on The Interrupters latest full length that doesn’t hit the spot, now into their eighth year The Interrupters have produced an album that should be an essential purchase for any fan of ska punk and the original two tone sound. If you liked The Interrupters first two releases then you’re going to love Fight The Good Fight as this is The Interrupters finest album to date
