freak machine“Judge me now for what I do,
I’m coming at ya,
Nothing left to lose,
So come on motherfucker”

The new album, Freak Machine proves that good things do indeed come to those who wait, as the offering showcases the band’s diversity with a killer mix of new creations and recent favorites.

Fit For Rivals New Single: Freak Machine


Fit For Rivals New Single: Freak Machine

They’re garnering tremendous buzz in the music industry, tearing up youtube, and impressing audiences across the country, and they are from our own backyard.

Fit For Rivals, a fresh, young band hailing from Jacksonville, released their new single titled “Freak Machine”, the title track for their new album set to be released in early 2015. Vocalist Renee Phoenix’s throaty growl, comparable to the vocal style of the legendary Joan Jett, blends perfectly with strong guitar riffs and a punchy beat bringing a song that could be overly upbeat, almost pop-like, back to a proper rock-n-roll sound.

This song will get into your head in a hurry, and you will find yourself moving to the beat on the first listen, and you will soon find you want a new fix of this sexy song to satisfy the itch it creates as it gets under your skin. You may find that you, as the lyrics say, “can’t shake it off. ”

I could only hope that “Freak Machine” gains much deserved radio play, but until then I know I can grab it on iTunes (Freak Machine – Single) or get a fix on Youtube:

I’m looking forward to the next time that Fit For Rivals finds their way to a billing at an Orlando venue.  In the meantime, fans in the Midwest will get the next opportunity to see them live, as they’ll be touring with Adelitas Way and Framing Hanley this Spring.
