Fight the Fear began garnering attention when they won back-to-back L.A. Music Awards for “Best Alternative Rock Group” in 2004 and 2005. The band then embarked on a grueling tour schedule through 2006.
In 2007, the band joined forces with producers Norwood Fisher (Fishbone bass player) and Danny Saber (U2, Rolling Stones, Marilyn Manson) to record their self-titled debut for Never Say Die Records.
Roger Baca’s passionate tenor cuts powerfully through the machine-gun hammer of guitarist Mark Reveles. Reveles’s solos unwind with furious momentum. Bassist Rob Christ and drummer James Rhinehart anchor the band.
