Fightstar have just premiered the first single ‘Animal‘ from their forthcoming album ‘Behind The Devils Back‘ which is set for release October 16th via the band’s own record label. This is their first since 2009’s ‘Be Human‘ so it’s been WAY too long!

Listen to the track below:

The album will be a welcome return for fans after their triumphant reunion shows over the past winter months which saw London’s ‘The Forum’ sell out in just 15 minutes.

‘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. 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!’ comments frontman, Charlie Simpson
