This is the second song that Fightstar have teased out from their upcoming album ‘Behind the Devil’s Back’, out on October 16th. If you thought previous track “Animal” was a tad heavy compared to their previous material then you haven’t heard anything yet. “Sharp Tongue”‘s intro goes even harder, almost crossing into a djent style metal riff before dropping you into Charlie Simpson’s soothing vocals for a little breather.
I’ve never really been a Fightstar fan, but after the power of these two tracks it’s impossible not to be interested in hearing what the rest of the album has to offer. This will be the band’s first release since 2009 and I love that they’ve gone in all guns blazing and made a statement with these songs. Whether you’ve been a Fightstar fan in the past or not, you should definitely give this a go.
