Philadelphia, PA noise rock powerhouse Fight Amputation (Fight Amp for short) have premiered their entire new record Constantly Off via Stereogum at this LOCATION. Stereogum says about the album: “Beneath a hard crust of booming toms and slippery Unsane-esque rhythms lies an efficient, borderline-pop songwriting sensibility that reminds a bit of Torche’s early work” that “places as much emphasis on the “rock” side of the genre as the “noise,”“.
Constantly Off, the band’s first new record in three years, is set for release on June 9th via Brutal Panda Records. The album was recorded in August 2014 at Gradwell House Studios in Haddon Heights, NJ with engineer Steve Poponi (Ladder Devils, Fight Amp, Into It, Over It).
Constantly Off will be released on limited edition LP with the artwork available in three different colors covers including pink (SOLD OUT), yellow/royal blue and black. Pre-Orders are available at this location. A limited edition cassette version will be released by Lost Tape Collective (pre-order here), while CD and digital versions are available here.
The band documented their time in the studio via Decibel Magazine in three parts which can be viewed HERE.

About Fight Amp:
FIGHT AMPUTATION is a heavy, grungy, hardcore punk crossed with sludge rock trio from the seedy underbelly of Philadelphia’s thriving noise rock scene. Drawing influence from Dead Kennedys, Cherubs, all things AmRep, His Hero Is Gone, Eyehategod, skateboarding, and foreclosed suburban ghost towns, FIGHT AMP has crafted a sound similar to early Melvins being molested by Queens of the Stone Age.
