Originally formed in 2003 by guitarist/vocalist Jamie Rhoden and the twin brother duo of vocalist/bassist Ned Russin and drummer Ben Russin when the trio were barely teenagers, TITLE FIGHT started as a way for these young kids to explore their burgeoning love of hardcore.

But after adding guitarist Shane Moran in 2005, something funny happened: Their tireless practicing eventually transformed them into one of the most exciting hardcore acts in recent memory.

After releasing a handful of EPs and 7-inches as well as performing shows all over the world, TITLE FIGHT began attracting attention from fans and labels who were captivated by the way the band managed to put a modern spin on the melodic hardcore sound pioneered by acts like Gorilla Biscuits and Lifetime - and in 2010 the members of Title Fight dropped out of college in order to tour full-time with acts such as New Found Glory, Four Year Strong and H20.

It was also around this time that the band entered the studio with Gorilla Biscuits/Quicksand guitarist Walter Schreifels who agreed to produce the band and promptly drove down to Northeastern Pennsylvania to help them prepare to record their highly anticipated full-length debut "Shed".

From there the band headed to Philadelphia to record Shed over a grueling two-week period at the legendary Studio 4.

However all those long nights paid off as "Shed" sees the band implementing various subgenres that range from old-school hardcore to aggressive punk rock that make these twelve energetic anthems instant classics for a new generation of listeners searching for music that inspires them as much as TITLE FIGHT were inspired by their heroes.

"We've been a band for seven years and this is the first time we've had a recording that's longer than seven minutes long," says Ned Russin.

"The last year has been a crazy ride but the whole time we've always stayed true to the fact that we're not trying to be anything we're not," he summarizes.

"We're four friends that play in a band together and we would still be doing this whether we were playing to five people or five hundred of them."
