I Fight Dragons has just re-released their EP, "Cool Is Just A Number" which includes the brand new track "Don't You."
The Chicago-based band is currently part of the "Too Fast For Love" tour, presented by MTV and featuring Photo Finish labelmates 3OH!3 alongside Cobra Starship and Travie McCoy. The tour, which kicked off late last month and continues through June 13th in Asbury Park, NJ, includes a stop in the band's hometown on May 15th as part of the inaugural Bamboozle Chicago. See below for itinerary.
"Cool Is Just A Numberů" showcases I Fight Dragons' digitized, daring approach to music, mixing chiptune and pop-rock. The group creates original songs not only with traditional rock elements but also by using old video game soundcards.
Founded in 2008, I Fight Dragons first began using synthesizers to create their sought after sound, but quickly learned about chiptune. By accessing Nintendo and Gameboy soundcards, the band was able to control them in the studio. Even live, the band uses Nintendo controllers that function as instruments.
release The new six-and-a-half song EP is available at http://store.ifightdragons.com or on the "Too Fast For Love" tour. I Fight Dragons will head back into the studio following their tour to finish their full-length debut.
