You might have heard earlier in the week our exciting announcement that alternative rockers Fightstar are set to play at the Union. They’ll be playing the Garden Court venue behind the Stag’s on October 18, 2015.

Tickets for the gig have gone on sale today (22.07.2015) and cost £15. You can buy them from boxoffice.susu.org. Tickets for the bands reunion show at The Forum in London sold out in just 15 minutes, so it’s sure to be a popular gig!

Fightstar announced today that their new album, Behind The Devil’s Back, is set for release on October 16th via the band’s own record label. This is the bands fourth studio album, following on from their 2009 release Be Human.

Speaking about the new release, frontman Charlie Simpson said: “We were so blown away with the fans response to our 10 year anniversary shows earlier this year, that we wanted to get into the studio and work on the new material we had stockpiled during the hiatus. This album is fresh and modern but still uniquely identifiable as Fightstar. We hope the fans will love it as much as we do, as we had a lot of fun making it. Since we had been away so long, once we were in the studio the ideas flew thick and fast, and the album took shape very organically. It’s a true collaborative effort between all four of us, and it shows that our chemistry is still as sharp as ever. Can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”
