TITLE FIGHT’s “Floral Green” debuts at #67 on Billboard Current Albums Chart

By on September 27, 2012

TITLE FIGHT’s FLORAL GREEN debuted this week at #67 on the Billboard Top Current Albums, which marks the band’s first entry into the Billboard Top 100. Floral Green was released on SideOneDummy Records on September 18th and has received critical praise from numerous outlets including NPR, Spin and Stereogum. Produced and engineered by Will Yip (Circa Survive, Blacklisted), Floral Green demonstrates a marked maturation in Title Fight’s signature sound. While it calls to mind such hallmark labels as 4AD and SST with the textured, emotional playing, it is also clear that the band’s hardcore and punk influences continue to be central and integral to their music.

NPR hailed the band, saying “Title Fight hits the sweet spot between the heartfelt, road-trip-proven pop-punk of Jawbreaker’s Dear You and the melodic post-hardcore of Hot Water Music… Title Fight have become more adept at unexpected tempo changes, intricate picking patterns and getting the most of out of a catchy hook,” while Spin praised their first single, “Head In The Ceiling Fan”, saying, “These Pennsylvania punk screamers dial it back on their new one, shooting for an artier, ’90s Hum-ish vibe. This one might not set the pit on fire, but no one down there will be complaining.” And Stereogum, who debuted the video for their song “Secret Society”, even went so far as to proclaim “ragers Title Fight are one of the bigger names on the whole Alternative Press/Warped Tour circuit, and they also might be the most underrated
