Fight Or Flight Drops EP Sampler For “The Green Room”

The Middletown, NJ-based Rap-Rock outfit, Fight Or Flight, recently surfaced again with a sampler of sorts for its forthcoming EP The Green Room, a follow up to the group’s 2011 debut release Too High To Come Down.

If I may twist the words of Eminem ever so slightly, “This isn’t black music.  This isn’t white music.  This is fightin’ music for high school kids.”  Rarely do a band of brothers have the grapes to create an amalgamation of Hip Hop coated Hard-Rock such as this.  Save for Rage Against The Machine, which made its bones by taking that revolutionary path back in 1992, these collaborations of varied backgrounds, mindsets, and musical styling are rarely sought by those deemed untouchable and impervious to a bad review (Run DMC/Aerosmith; Public Enemy/Anthrax), or artists without any type of self awareness (Limp Bizkit…who I like, so back off).

However, this collective shows no fear in joining the rhymed verse of front-men Tim Guerin and Tom Pioszyk with Punk refrains, and much respect is due to any group willing to cast fire over the Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind,” especially when they can pull it off.

Take a listen to some snippets below and be sure to catch Fight Or Flight at The FIXX in Red Bank on December 10th, and again on December 29th at Seven Days in Union Beach.
