Like a Phoenix rising out of the ashes from Springfield, OH, Fight Before Surrender was formed out of failed projects and a need for solid, hardworking punk rock late in December of 2002. Over the years, they have defined the term "hardworking," by covering almost a million miles across America, touching 29 states and playing over 300 shows. While bringing more energy and excitement than a two-year-old hopped up on candy, FBS destroys eardrums with hard-hitting punk rock through the influences of Motorhead, GBH, The Exploited, and Cock Sparrer. Even with member changes and personal heartache threatening to infect the band with a short life, nothing seems to slow this band down. Their name, Fight Before Surrender, is the best description for this band.
Current band members are: Josh, Oki , Jay, and Nate.
