Vote for them to play this years Warped tour here:
From the beginning, Fighting the Phoenix has strived to remain bright and honest; Standing by what they believe in. Founded in 2011, the indie metal group started to reveal the passion within as they played with larger acts in the industry. The brotherhood of 5 can't be broken while they push to persevere against the odds. 'Ballad of the Broken' was just the stepping stone toward maturity as a first release. The album didn't perform terrible, but now the quintet has brought forth their sophomore album, 'The Tides of Poseidon'. Available May 10th, 2016, the band prepares to embark on their journey; reaching for the sky as they chase their dream and persevere. Fast forwarding through the years of development and lineup changes, the band has secured the lineup with only a couple vocal changes. Solidifying the sound and branding the re-amped name of Fighting the Phoenix, they produced 'Tides of Poseidon'.
"Fighting the Phoenix is standing strong and our family is growing. We can't wait to bring you 'The Tides of Poseidon', this is what we have created and spent almost a year working towards. This is how we progressed as musicians thus far; and THIS is something to experience. Although we have encountered a change in the family, we are ready once more to pursue the inevitable. We are aiming to please and broaden horizons; most importantly, we are seeking to expand the family. We love everyone who supports us, We love the relationships we create. No one will ever change what we dream of and we will continue to push because we want to visit the #FTPFAMILY; Most importantly, we want to show you Tides of Poseidon."
More shows coming soon.

"Tides Of Poseidon" EP Review
Colorado metal band Fighting The Phoenix released this EP back in May and fans of metal and metalcore should get a kick out of it. The intro track "Ira Flactibus" opens things up in chaotic fashion before giving away to the next track "Atlantis". "Atlantis" brings to mind early As I Lay Dying as it melds together vicious breakdowns, shredding riffs and soaring melodies. "Divinity" features Ryan Kirby (Fit For A King) and right from the get go it goes for the jugular. The cataclysmic breakdowns and heaviness on the track are something that fans of August Burns Red should enjoy immensely. "Dream Catcher" is a fast paced melodic metalcore track that brings the house down with its intensity. There's a slight Trivium vibe as the track shows a tremendous amount of depth along with its metal influences. "Tr-8r" is a track that draws comparisons to Feed Her To The Sharks with its ferocity. The track really takes the heaviness to an all new level and absolutely destroys everything in its path. "Horror Of Babylon" opens up with a barbershop quartet type acapella before blasting into some extreme metalcore sound. Somehow even though its the sixth track, the EP seems to be getting heavy. That's very rare to find and its something very refreshing. The closer "Believe In Me" ends things on a high note. The track sums up their sound perfectly with melody and brutality on the forefront. It's a solid closer to a remarkable EP.
This new EP from Fighting The Phoenix sets the bar high for metal/metalcore fans.
