Fights and Fires emerged in 2008 when four friends from Worcester UK, tucked themselves away in their unconventional practise space (a disused meat refrigeration unit) to write some songs. The result was a stunning six track mini-album of chaotic, melodic hardcorePaying homage to their various influences: At The Drive-In, Rites of Spring, The Bronx, Husker-Du, Planes Mistaken for Stars and others, they have a forceful, thoughtful release of which they are justifiably proud.‘Will this be my Curse?’ was recorded at The Waiting Room Studios, Worcester by Jim Turner (Tribute To Nothing, Backwash, Klay, Second Monday, Resonate) in November 2008.The EP was met with open arms by the press, bands and crowds alike.They appeared in pretty much every major national magazine during the press campaign for the record.

2009 was a busy year full of shows supporting the release of the EP, playing with such greats as: Warship, The Computers, Tribute To Nothing, Glass And Ashes, Outbreak, Outcry Collective, Yashin, Dividing The Line and many many more… During 2009 the boys managed to tour across England, Scotland, Wales, Europe and all the way into Croatia all off their own backs.

2010 started well for Fights And Fires. The band headed to Outhouse Studios in Reading to record tracks for a video and a Lockjaw Records Split CD (released: 26th April 2010). Throughout 2010, Fights And Fires spent a total of 2 months on tour solidly in mainland Europe, taking in France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Austria, Croatia, and Slovenia.
