Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Fuel The Disease”?
FTD is about getting caught up and lost in an overwhelming situation, then being introduced to mind-altering chemicals and that becoming your escape.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
An old roommate of mine dated this girl that would come by on weekends when her baby’s daddy was watching her newborn. They’d sit in his room and pound liquor and smoke meth and God knows what until they were on another universe.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
We have a pretty epic video idea but it’s going to take some serious planning.. It’s going to be worth it though!
The single comes off your new album Renal 911 – what’s the story behind the title?
“Renal” means dealing with the liver, and a lot of the situations that these songs come from involve addiction and medication that lead to emergencies. We live in a culture and society where drugs and alcohol are shoved down our throats since childbirth and it often ends up destroying lives.
How was the recording and writing process?
We wanted to track the instruments live and get the energy to come through by not recording with a metronome. Also, we flew out to the glory hole capital of New York, West Babylon, to record at the incredibly handsome Dan Korneff’s studio, Sonic Debris.
What aspect of bi-polarity and depression did you get to explore on this record?
For example, “Prison” is about being trapped in your head in a loop of negative thoughts, or being controlled by someone close to you. On the flip side, “Fuel The Disease” is about breaking free of responsibility by getting fucked up and forgetting about all of you problems.
Any plans to hit the road?
Hell yes! Soon! If you’re reading this let us know where you want us to come play!
So What else is happening next in Late Night Fights’ world?
Right now we’re pushing the new EP to radio and working on a summer/fall tour. Then it’s back to the studio this winter to keep the jams coming. Hope you dig the new shit and request us at your rock stations!
