On Tuesday April 13th, 2010 the recently launched label Good Fight Music will make their mark on the world of metal and hardcore punk with their debut releases Cancer Bats "Bears, Mayors, Scraps, and Bones" as well as Son of Aurelius "The Farthest Reaches." Each offering from the label contains something unique to stoke the passionate flames of the entire spectrum of heavy metal and hardcore punk fans. With the celebration of independent music stores approaching, Record Store Day 4/17/2010, Good Fight Music is chipping in with two sure fire ways for fans to show their love and support of physical CDs.

Cancer Bats "Bears, Mayors, Scraps, and Bones" is an ensemble of whiskey soaked riffs, focused aggression, and well placed hooks. The band cranks out a stripped down stoner infused hybrid of punk and metal. The final track of the album is a blistering rendition of the Beastie Boy’s “Sabotage”.  The band have landed themselves a coveted spot on a legendary night of hardcore with Snapcase and Sick of it All and will also be out touring in support of the album with Every Time I Die and Norma Jean. The dates of these upcoming U.S. shows are:

W/ SNAPCASE, SICK OF IT ALL, WALTER SCHREIFELS
5/8 Buffalo, NY@ TOWN MUSIC HALL
 
W/ EVERY TIME I DIE, NORMA JEAN

With their band's debut release "The Farthest Reaches",  Son of Aurelius push the boundaries of heavy metal and challenge the depth of songwriting in the death metal genre.  It only takes a few seconds into the first track to pick up on the complexity and sheer brilliance of the musicianship.  There is hook and moments of melody that blend perfectly with the all out attack of musicianship.  "The Farthest Reaches" is a must have for any fan of extreme metal. The band have lined up some major shows in support of their debut release including a personal in store performance for Record Store Day, support dates for WhiteChapel, and a spot on the crushing California Metal Fest IV.
