Fightstar announce comeback album Behind The Devil's Back and full UK tour
Fightstar have announced that they have returned from hiatus and will be releasing a new album later this year.
The band have been on hiatus since 2010, during which time all members have pursued other projects, with frontman Charlie Simpson releasing two solo albums, but they have now announced their return.
They will release their fourth studio album, which is to be titled Behind The Devil's Back, on October 16th. It is their first album since 2009's Be Human and will be released on their own record label.
Speaking about the album, 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."
He continued: "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!"
The band will support the album with a full UK tour, beginning on October 17th at London's Troxy and ending on October 28th at Aberdeen Garage, the tour takes in nine dates in all.
