August 6th, 2010

It’s time for another Thrash Hits festival splash page – and this time it’s for Sonisphere! All of our Sonisphere Festival 2010 coverage from the weekend will be linked to on this here post, so make sure you bookmark it as it’s all you’re going to need need. That means individual band coverage (interviews, photos, setlists and maybe even some reviews), all the dodgy rumours and salacious gossip we overhear, and every lewd photo of fit girls frolicking about at Knebworth we can rustle up will be here.

What was your highlight of 2008?
Sharing the stage with Fightstar, Story of the year, Atreyu and touring with Finch, To be honest 2008 has been fun. I feel that we have achieved a lot for the amount of time we have been going. Good times.

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
1. Forgetting my hair straighteners for a 12-day tour. 2. Our van brakes broke on the way to a show in Munich, Germany, which meant we had to sit in the van for 18 hours or so while we waited for Jamie’s (bass player) dad to come rescue us. Four English guys sat in a big white van in the middle of Belgium gets quite a lot of attention. Bad times.

Fightstar have released the video to their new single, ‘The English Way’.

The single will be released on 3 November 2008 on their new label, Search And Destroy on CD, 7″ vinyl and as a digital bundle with a collection of b-sides – ‘Colours Bleed’, ‘Drown’, ‘The English Way (acoustic)’ and an Imogen Heap cover, ‘Hide & Seek’.

The multi-talented and wonderfully-eyebrowed Charlie Simpson plays drums on these b-sides as Omar Abidi broke his hand 4 weeks ago.

Fightstar will be on the road this autumn, supporting Feeder and release a new album in summer 2009.

Fightstar return, almost a year on from their last full length release, with a collection of b-sides, rarities and one new track. With the band only having two albums and an early EP to their name it could be seen as something of a gamble.
