While browsing through the myriad databases available to me, I discovered this interesting interview.  Unfortunately, I could not find out who the author was but it is still worth a share, I believe.  It was titled Exclusive Interview:  Fight Gone Bad (in)Between Albums and is certainly worth a read.  Enjoy!


  1. So, you all just released a handful of singles.  After your debut album “Because Bureaucracy”, did you ever think you would have this much success?

FGB:  While a more subdued success, thus far, we hope time will only increase it.  Overall, though, we are treading lightly considering our circumstances.  Until recently, we would still be making music for the sake of music no matter what.  However, as time has progressed, so have our options for exposure.  Truthfully, birthing these songs is success within a perfect storm.


  1. These days, it seems like everyone is obsessed with origins and roots.  For Fight Gone Bad, where and how did your story begin?

FGB:  Beginning as a punk rock cover band three or four years ago.  In that Spring, we were given the opportunity to write songs for a concert, but they had to all be original works. 
We have always been people to fully take advantage of even the smallest gifts granted us, so within a year or two we were determined to go above and beyond.  This time our focus has been one of our greatest pathways for growth and allowed us to perform at our peak.


  1. One of your most successful and, I personally believe, unique songs is “Modern Parable”.  What inspired this song?

FGB:  Some original band members always wanted to make a spoken word song.  For their basis, they pulled from a collection of classic prayers that were written in an ancient prose.  Unfortunately, circumstances changed and they had to leave, but we kept the idea and applied it to The Parable of the Three Trees.


  1. Do you see yourselves maintaining this pattern of, arguably, unclassifiable and mixed-genre music?  Do you think this is part of your charm or a challenge to maintaining your popularity?

FGB:  Absolutely.  It is important for us to share our own personal spin on music.  We encompass a myriad of genres we are all fond of, but we also feel like it is a product of necessity.  We have a wide range of backgrounds in our environment and a natural by-product of that is necessary cooperation for us to succeed, we need to be adaptable and meticulous, especially when it comes to teamwork and taste.


  1. I don’t know if you all are aware of this, but recently there has been a growing movement that essentially idolizes the grey areas of life.  This (in)Between movement has taken it upon themselves to make your music their anthem.  Do you believe it is a true assessment of your songs to represent this mish-mashed and overlooked aspect of society?

FGB:  Once music is out in the world, it gains legs of its own and we are grateful for that, but we will only produce music that we believe whole-heartedly shares our views of the world.  To be honest, we purposely, just as a by-product of our environment, end up making music that appeals to a variety of people.  We are really an artistic collective because we focus on making music and have a diverse set of talents to pull from.  In that sense, we are essentially a perfect fit for the (in)Between.


  1. Of these singles, which of them are you most proud of and why?

FGB:  Well…  We personally believe every song is like a child no matter the challenges, you love them unconditionally.  At the top of the list so far is “Charlie in the Box” for three reasons.  First, it is by far the song we spent the most time on the vocals because it was meant to be poignant.  Secondly, it is supposed to induce empathy and was consciously crafted to do so.  Finally, it is probably the closest emulation of FGB’s voice and a benchmark for future releases.


  1. Do you think any of these songs you just dropped will overcome your established music?  If so, which one(s), or if not why?

FGB:  Honestly, it is a mixed bag.  With “Tears for You”, it is an underrepresented theme.  Music for us is like a painting, a blank canvas with unlimited potential.  As parents in prison, we thought it was important to shine light on this overshadowed and unknown minority.  We hope that these songs will resonate with people the most.  We also firmly believe they will appeal to their very human qualities which have, unfortunately, been brought close to the surface for everyone over the past few years.


  1. After your first successful album and the February 14th release of these singles, what does the future hold for Fight Gone Bad?

FGB:  Music will always be our lifeblood and we will keep creating it for as long as we are able to.  Outside of that, there is no telling what the future holds, but we hope for more blessings and success as time goes on.  Even given the limitations of our unique situation, we have a common belief to keep using our talents to their fullest and will still be friends, striving to stay in touch.  One of our pathways to success has always been a modicum of slow and steady wins the race.


Well folks, there is your very first, exclusive, interview for the up-and-coming artistic collective Fight Gone Bad.  Their debut album “Because Bureaucracy” has been on all major digital platforms since last year, and these newly released singles followed it.  They are all quite a treat, and I hope you all will check them out.  I will try my best, to be the first go-to for Fight Gone Bad, so stay tuned.
