Biography

London, United Kingdom (2003 – 2010, 2014 – present)

Fightstar is a band, formed in 2003, from London, United Kingdom. The band consists of Charlie Simpson on vocals, guitar and keyboard, Alex Westaway on guitar and also providing vocals, bass guitarist Dan Haigh and drummer Omar Abidi. They have released three studio albums, “Grand Unification” in 2006, “One Day Son, This Will All Be Yours” in 2007 and most recently “Be Human” in April 2009. Before releasing any albums the band released “They Liked You Better When You Were Dead”, a 6 track EP. And in 2008 they released a compilation album consisting of b-sides and covers called “Alternate Endings”. They are currently on their own record label Search And Destroy in the UK and are signed with Trustkill Records in the US.

The band are currently taking an extended hiatus and are expected to regroup in the near future to write new material.

Fightstar’s debut EP, “They Liked You Better When You Were Dead”, was released on February 28, 2005, following a rapid promotional tour of the United Kingdom. Being an EP and containing in excess of 3 tracks (it in fact contained 6 tracks, one more than shown on the track listing, the 6th being a hidden track) it was ineligible for the singles chart in the UK - whether or not this was a conscious choice on the part of the band

    What if Gunship isn't a side project and is a tentative title for Fightstar's fourth space rock/new wave inspired album?!?!?! 0_o

    Listening to these guys for the first time in a few years, they made some great music. Saw them 13 times in just over 2 years, they were one of the best live bands around!!
