After years of running in likeminded musical circles in their hometown of Pittsburgh, PA the members of Fist Fight In The Parking Lot came together on Thanksgiving Eve of 2009. It would their first on stage debut, and they would make it without ever having played a note together.
At a local showcase, a last minute cancelation left a lull of “time to fill.” Battle tested players, a quick off stage discussion would be the only preparation before embarking on a quick four song set. The on-stage chemistry was immediate. A few years later, their first release would be in front of a sold out crowd in the same year they would be voted as the best metal band in the city.
Fist Fight released their self titled debut album in February of 2012, playing off their name with punchy, concise and vitriolic welcome. A darker turn would follow in 2014, with the sludgy yet soaring “Year of the Ox.” Even Motherhood wouldn’t slow them down. As lead singer Abby Krizner was pregnant with her first child, the band was completing writing and recording for their next release.
The venom spitting groove of Fist Fight In The Parking Lot returns on “714,” to be released July 2017.
